Rumble! The Best of Link Wray

Link Wray - CD - Rating: 10/10

Rhino knows how to create an excellent compilation and they have done it again her with this Link Wray sampler. It opens with his best known song, “Rumble,” and continues on from there. At least three of the twenty tracks try to emulate the feeling of that first hit, but none of them can quite match its rawness. But that’s okay because every one of these songs has plenty of Link’s stripped down and fuzzed-out guitar riffing and a couple even feature his screeching single-lunged vocal talents. This CD is the obvious starting point for anyone new to Link.
