Biography

Link Wray may never get into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, but his contribution to the language of rockin' guitar would still be a major one, even if he had never walked into another studio after cutting "Rumble." Quite simply, Link Wray invented the power chord, the major modus operandi of modern rock guitarists. Listen to any of the tracks he recorded between that landmark ...

Format: Audio CD
Mix together Neil Young, R L Burnside and Elvis turn it up loud and you might get something sounding like this. Link Wray has been playing filthy guitar for several decades and is credited as being one of the founding fathers of rock 'n' roll. Unlike many he hasn't got polite in his old age. This is a fine collection of scruffy blues songs and surf instrumentals. Think Tarrantino soundtracks....

amazing! amazing! amazing! 1 Nov 1999
By SnowDog3000 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
this is one awesome album from Link. incredible guitar work, at both medium, slow, and frenetic tempos, some great vocal tracks like Heartbreak Hotel and and It Was So Easy, plus Fogerty's Run Thru the Jungle. Made by just Link and his drummer Rob Louvers and bassist Eric Danno, this album kicks a**. Along with Link's live Walking Down a Street Called Love, one his best releases ever. It's amazing that this 67 year old just keeps getting better. He's at the top of his game right now

Link Wray is a guitar God. 25 May 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Link Wray is absolutely one of the greatest guitar players of all time. His original guitar sound was light years ahead of its time. If you love loud rock guitar this CD is a must.With songs like " Rumble on the Docks " this is a one of a kind classic.

Absolutely fantastic guitar work! 23 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Given the uneven quality of other Link Wray recordings, I really enjoyed this CD. Some of the vocal work by Mr. Wray is on the edge, but overall a top addition to my music collection.
Good Guitar sound 8 Dec 2013
By MICHAEL J LEDBETTER - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I like his style of guitar playing, some of the songs have kind of a haunting sound I like. I keep repeating rumble on the docks and shadowman, I like his version of run through the jungle, I don't care to much for heartbreak hotel but that is not a song I like even when Elvis does it. over all I love this CD.
Link Wray's Shadowman 2 Dec 2010
By JW - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I thought this was a great album - Link Wray proves that he stayed great right up to his last albums! He still commands the raw energy of rock guitar. Some of the best songs on this album in my opinion are: 'Rumble On The Docks', 'Heartbreak Hotel', 'Geronimo', 'Night Prowler', 'Timewarp/Strider', & 'Shadowman'. That's more than half the album!
