    Gene Vincent "The Night Is So Lonely" Rare 45 Picture Sleeve Capitol 4237 (1960). If we haven't wowed you yet with one of our rare picture sleeve offerings, surely this one will grab you! Although Gene was Capitol's answer to RCA's Elvis, and had been recording for the label since 1956, not a single picture sleeve had been issued for his 45 releases until this one in 1960. And the puzzling (clueless?) label didn't issue another in Vincent's lifetime. Since this release didn't even chart in Billboard's Hot 100, not many copies were sold, and not many picture sleeves distributed. It's now one of the rarest from the era. Get it while you can! There is some red ink near the top of the cover, which is easily missed on first review. Condition: EX 7.
