Link Wray - Early Recordings

£14.99
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: http://acerecords.co.uk/early-recordings-1#sthash.aqJ39cI9.dpuf
