“Link Wray” by Link Wray - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1971Album Chart of the Decade: 1970s

TJR says

Link's self-titled released of '71 is probably best described as a homemade bluesy brand of southern rock, recorded in his famously converted old chicken shack on his Maryland farm. It's amusing to know that for a time no drum kit was available, so on several tracks the musicians stomped on the floor for the bass drum and shook a can of nails for the snare drum. Gotta love that down-home vibe! As the man himself said: “In a way I couldn't care less if the album didn't sell a single copy. We're happy with it and we've done it our way”.
