After cutting the anthemic instrumental "Rumble" for Cadence Records, Link took his follow-up "Rawhide" over to Epic Records, and this track compilation is the most excellent distillation of his tenure at the label. The honchos at Columbia were trying their level best to tame Link down for mass consumption Duane Eddy twanged for White teenage America; Link Wray played for hoods. Fortunately here we're spared having to hear "seemed Walkin Bulldog - Link Wray - The Link Wray Rumble a good idea at the time" atrocities like "Trail of the Lonesome Pine" and "Clare De Lune" in favor of 20 tracks of solid rockin' mayhem.
Casual fans who only think of Wray as a wild-ass guitarist his tone on the title track is pure, detuned, hacking filth will be very surprised to find that rebel nature also applies to his vocal cords on such raucous outings as Jimmy Reed's "Ain't That Lovin' You Baby" in two different takes hereRay Charles' "Mary Anne," and the previously unissued rocker "Oh Babe Be Mine.
