Link Wray - Early Recordings

From time to time the Link Wray Swan 45s would turn up at our Rock On Record stores, but otherwise Link Wray vintage material was in short supply, apart from a welcome but dubious LP on Union Pacific. His previous album of new recordings was 1975‰۪s ‰ÛÏStuck In Gear‰۝, but we also carried a 45 of a coruscating alternate take of I‰۪m So Glad, I‰۪m So Proud from 1972‰۪s ‰ÛÏBeans and Fatback‰۝ LP. So a Link Wray album of his vintage material was on the cards in April 1978, and this CD replicates that in miniature. The sleeve could hardly have been simpler with a cut out a stuck down pic of Link on a yellow background and his name in BIG letters, and now it is an icon of the period. It is hard to imagine in these days of overkill in the re-issue market that this LP was in 1978 one of the few genuine rock‰۪n‰۪roll records available. - See more at:
