Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Thirty seven years ago Link Wray's older brother, Vernon, released his only album. With Link and his band providing the backing, Vernon Wray recorded this gem of an album of country and folk influenced originals that was completely overlooked at the time. The musicians are stellar, including Link and Doug Wray and most of Link's Band at the time and the mostly acoustic arrangements (credited to Doug and Link) fit the songs exactly. The appearance of a flute on one song cements the album in the early seventies time period while still managing to sound appropriate. Vernon's deep voice is mixed right up front where it belongs, the lyrics are heartfelt and topical and even those who aren't Link Wray completists will find much to like about this CD.

The liner notes include the information that due to the deteriorated condition of the original master tapes, the CD was mastered from a vinyl record. It must have been a virgin copy from the original pressing because my admittedly unsophisticated ears found the sound to be superb. And speaking of superb, the packaging of the CD could not be better. A genuine cardboard sleeve with the original album art, an inner lyric sheet with photos, this release was put together with great care and respect for the artist. Congratulations to Big Pink, the releasing label on a job well done...I wonder if they have any interest in the John Hurley catalog.
