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."

Editorial Reviews

The King of the Wild Guitar rips through a five-decade career-spanning 25 cuts of extreme distortion. Not for the faint hearted. No vocal filler, just the guitar sound that launched a thousand riffs, and all re-mastered. It's quite brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Link Wray King Of The Wild Guitar December 1, 2010
By JW
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
King Of The Wild Guitar I think is one of the best collections of kick-ass Link Wray rock & roll guitar playing! This whole album is great!This is the be all, end all, of gut-driving,heart-pounding, guitar! Classic Link Wray! If you love Link Wray or never heard of him before, and want to find 'the' album that really defines Link's raw, rock'n roll energy, get this album!

4.0 out of 5 stars Some track errors. July 28, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great compilation, but there's some errors that I found in the track listing. Tracks 4, 5, and 6 are wrong. There's no Run Chicken Run. Instead of tracks 4.Black Widow, 5.Run Chicken Run, and 6.Deuces Wild it's actually; 4.Deuces Wild, 5. Black Widow, and 6.Mustang(again?). I don't know how they managed to screw that up, or if I'm wrong here, but its annoying. However I do recommend this cd. I got this cd for "Apache" which is my favorite Link song.
