- Artist: Link Wray
- Format: CD
- Release Date:11/1/2011
Digitally re-mastered edition of this 1960 album including 16 bonus tracks. Link Wray was perhaps the first important instrumental rock musician to feature the power chord prominently. His impact has been felt throughout almost every genre of music for the last five decades (from Rock 'n' Roll to Garage, Country, Blues, Punk, Grunge and Surf music). Link Wray's sound, style and career stood at an intersection of Rock 'n' Roll, the rise of the guitar instrumental, the cult of the juvenile delinquent, and modernity in general. This quintessential collector's edition contains Wray's magnificent and essential debut album, Link Wray & the Wraymen plus 16 bonus tracks consisting of alternate takes, demos and hard to find sides from his early and best years on the Epic and Cadence labels. Here is the material upon which Wray's unique reputation was built. Hoo Doo Records.
