Link Wray's Injun Rock 'n Roll Roots are the REAL DEAL!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Link Wray (Audio CD)
When I first heard this music in vinyl record form back in the early[mid?] Seventies, while living as a hermit in a beat up old shack on a dairy farm in North Carolina, I thought that I had died and gone to heaven. God Almighty, that backwoods primitive Native American Rock and Roll beat, was just so damn Genuine and Authenic, I listened to it over and over and over and over again. And even though I'm not a religious man, the way Link and his backup singers sang about Jesus, just about made a believer outta me. So, decades flew by, and that record got lost somewhere, but I never forgot it, and would seek out different Link Wray music in an attempt to get that good good feeling back. But all the other music that Wray did was WAY WAY different, and nowheres as good as this one. For a long time, I would doubt myself into thinking that maybe I was remembering his name wrong. But LINK WRAY?..... Not too many of them around to get confused with. And FINALLY, thanks to the producers [Polydor} and Amazon, I am back in the heavy heavy but, oh so uplifting groove once again! This album will MOVE you like nothin" else!!! And I also want to thank my long lost buddy, Pete Hoffman for lending that beautiful record to me back then. Thanks, Pete.
