Customer Review

on 19 May 2008
I first stumbled across Link Wray's "Rumble" just a few years ago via a sound track from some Quentin Tarantino movie and thought: "What's this?" You see, in the past, I never rated anything that had to do with the fifties. Link Wray played the "right music" at the "wrong time" and must be one of the most influential guitar players of all times. I was "shell shocked" when I bought this album. The "missing link" is probably a worn phrase but appropriate. Having loved Led Zeppelins early albums, I know know where Jimmy Page got the sound from. Link Wray paved the way for "hard rock" and "heavy metal". There is great stuff here: Rumble, The Black Widow, Big City After Dark, Deuces Wild, The Shadow Knows, Ace of Spades and Jack the Ripper (The live version is excellent) All stood the test of times.
