Original Debut Album On Vinyl LP!

This is the album that Link Wray originally offered to the Cadence label in the wake of his groundbreaking debut hit "Rumble" back in 1958. Even though people loved 'em in Washington, D.C., Link and the boys did not last long on the label. Faster than you can say Rumble, everyone was talking about the new threat to the morals of American youth. Their street image seemed to be sharply at odds with Cadence Records' formality, so the guys were dropped. Link eventually re-recorded some of the tracks for his next label, Epic, who actually released his debut album but these are the original Cadence versions from the original session tapes. Finally on vinyl, Link's debut album the way it was meant to be!

"I left school emotionally after hearing 'Rumble.'" - Iggy Pop

"He is the king; if it hadn't been for Link Wray and 'Rumble,' I would have never picked up a guitar." - Pete Townshend

"Quite simply, Link Wray invented the power chord, the major modus operandi of modern rock guitarists. Listen to any of the tracks he recorded between that landmark instrumental in 1958 through his Swan recordings in the early '60s and you'll hear the blueprints for heavy metal, thrash, you name it." - AllMusic
