Link Link


More sharities...I found this some place online, but I can't remember where. Link Wray stuff is kind'a hard to find on vinyl and I have little or none these days. I swiped this as soon as I saw it.
Someone ripped this from good 'ol Sundazed records and so I must pass it on.

Link Wray and his Ray Men-White Lightening,The Lost Cadence Sessions (1958)
"This is the fantastic and fiery album that was supposed to have been released as a follow-up to one of the all-time great, instrumental classics, “Rumble.” But faster than you can say “Drag Race,” everyone was talking about the new threat to the morals of American youth — Cadence label-owner Archie Bleyer included. That’s why Link and his boys were off the imprint, and this album of his prime-era, distorto-guitar-crunch cool remained unreleased for nearly 50 years! At long last, here it is, and it’s every bit as dirty and dangerous as you would expect!"

Kool, dad!

Love his tune "raw hide", which is great for random party playlists. (not the TV show theme). Dig it up, and dig it dad.
