    Gene Vincent and His Blue Caps "Be-Bop-A-Lula" 10" 78-rpm Acetate Capitol Records F3450 (1956). A slightly different take from the released version. Penned by Vincent, Donald Graves and Bill "Sheriff Tex" Davis the song is listed as number 103 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. The disc comes with the original Capitol Records paper sleeve. Additionally the lot includes a copy of an 8" x 10" B&W photo of Eddie Cochran (wearing glasses) and American songwriter Sharon Sheeley, who was once his fiancé. Lastly the lot includes a 45-rpm Davey Wayne and The Smoothies "Sharp Toes" backed with "Drivin' Love" on Get Gone Records, 1980. Wayne's rather low-resolution headshot accompanies the 45. Condition: EX 7 (sleeve); EX 7 (disc).
