A nice copy of an album that rarely turns up still sealed.
Background: I’m Back and I’m Proud was one of the last LPs recorded by Gene Vincent before his 1971 death. The material was produced by Kim Fowley and arranged by Skip Battin, then the bass player for the Byrds.
The album did not reach the charts in any country.
Recorded in 1969 for famed British DJ John Peel’s Dandelion label and released the following year, it did feature some notables of the late-’60s Hollywood rock scene, including Skip Battin of the Byrds (on bass), Red Rhodes (on Dobro), Mars Bonfire (rhythm guitar), Jim Gordon (drums), and Linda Ronstadt (backing vocals), with Kim Fowley producing. …The heavier late-’60s rock feel of the arrangements doesn’t jibe well with Vincent’s style, though some cuts boast a countrified touch (particularly the ones featuring Rhodes), and Vincent himself often sounds a little shaky and nervous on the vocals.
