Link Wray: Some Kinda Nut - Missing Links Vol.3 (LP)

(1990/Norton Records) 15 Tracks - Link & the Raymen in their prime-- early & mid-sixties rarities!

While the early 60's were primo years for Link Wray & the Raymen, the arrival of Brit combo madness 
in early '64 relegated nearly alla the original rock'n'rollers to the back burner and Link and the 
boys were no exception. Shame was the Raymen were actually Purdy much on top of their game at the time, 
as the mid-'63 success of Jack The Ripper on Swan gave the Wrays their biggest smash since Rawhide and 
led to a monstrous string of Loons. Hell, Swan came out with She Loves You within a scant few weeks of 
Link's scratchin' Run Chicken Run. So there! 

Nowadays geetar whiz Evan Johns who grew up on Linktoons in the DC area recalls a '64 amusement park gig 
where kids were hurlin' ice cream cones stageside as the Raymen skirted their shouts for Beatle numbers. 
Still, Link did lay down a few sides with a nod to the new sound. On the overt Beatles rip off Baby Doll, 
the Raymen did sneaky biz as the Spiders for Lawn Records, tho Link soon came clean addin' Doll and its 
chugger of a flip Run Boy Run (not to mention the looney shakeout Remember The Twist) to his 
SINGS & PLAYS GUlTAR album. A raw, tuff treatment of the Fab Four's Please Please Me was seemingly Link's 
only other wink at the Beatles. Until now it's only ever been ished on a British budget comp so hopefully 
we'll be gittin' it some well deserved spins here.

Brother Vern became increasingly involved in his home studio cuttin' locally successful sides on Ronnie Dove, 
the British Walkers and other DC noteables. Easily the coolest cat to cross Vern's path was R&B
shouter/prizefighter Dave Walker who did his howlin' as Bunker Hill was discovered by Vern playin' a raunchy 
DC dive and Wray immediate took over as his manager & promoter, pushin' Bunker heavily with the Raymen as 
his backup band. The combination was incredible. Hide & Seek his first waxing became a monster DC area hit 
and was later featured to good effect in the John Waters flick HAIRSPRAY. 

A pair of followups (featured here) were even WILDER with The Girl Can't Dance nearin' the brink of sheer insanity 
what with Vern hammerin' piano, Link & the boys goin' at crack up speed and Hill screcchin' his lungs out! 
Notch, the sedate folks at Mala Records were perfectly willing to part company with Mr. Hill right then 'n' there. 
Too bad for us wisenheimers that he never recorded again. In addition to the studio, Vern set up his own label 
Vermillion Records (Vern's Millions - git it?) and kicked it off by ishin' lots of the Wray's back catalog. 

One of his more sonic offerings was Drag Strip/XKE by the Fender Benders, a '64 release that starred geetar killers 
Jack Van Horn and the Linkster. Jack was a local attraction in his own right and appeared on 'n' off as the Raymen's 
rhythm guitarist, even chippin' in on some of the Swan sides. 

Some Kinda Nut/The Other Side Of The Moon was another Wray one shot, this time they did their orbitin' as the Moon Men. 
Link slowed his dub work down by the mid-60's and concentrated on workin' the family farm. 
For his final bow in the sixties, Link went out blazin'. The tracks Genocide, Earth Is Crying, Hungry and Growling Guts 
were featured on the Vern ished LP entitled YESTERDAY AND TODAY which pitted a side of proven Link classics with these 
equally worthy new wares. Along with the 45 Rumble '69 (which Link put together with Joe Welz), these sides stacked up 
as the last link to the traditional Raymen sound. 

A new era was dawning for Link in the 70's however. He began recording more rural, countrified stuff at Vern's new 
3-track studio and resulting recordings for Polydor met with great critical acclaim. 
By the decade's end he gained even wider exposure as Robert Gordon's right hand man and interest was vastly renewed 
in his early sides. Vern, Doug and Shorty are no longer with us and Link remains in semi-retirement, but every now n' 
then he straps on that six stringy and droves one n' fer all that there is indeed no compctition.

 - Billy Miller in 1990

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Wray, Link"

LINK WRAY

La De Da

aufgenommen im Oktober 1970 bei Wray's Shack Three Track, Accokeek, Maryland; Produzenten: Steve Verroca und Ray Vernon in Zusammenarbeit mit Bob Feldman

mit Lincoln 'Link' Wray: Gesang/Gitarren/Dobro/Bass; Billy Hodges: Klavier/Orgel/ Backing Vocal; Bobbie Howard: Mandoline/Klavier; Doug Wray: Schlagzeug/Backing Vocal; Steve Verroca: Percussion/Backing Vocal

Polydor 24-4064 (LP)

Link Wray spielte den wichtigsten D-Akkord der Geschichte: Er eröffnete Rumble. Gitarristen erinnern sich oft daran, wo sie waren, als sie es zum ersten Mal hörten. Dreizehn Jahre später unterschrieb Wray bei der neu gegründeten amerikanischen Abteilung von Polydor, und sein hinterer Veranda-Sound hätte fast von einem anderen Link Wray ausgehen können.

Die Großfamilie Wray lebte fast gemeinsam auf der Familienfarm in der Nähe von Accokeek, Maryland, eine Stunde südlich von Washington. "Papa begann, einen Hühnerstall und eine Veranda auf dem Haus zu bauen", sagte Link 1971 zu Tom Zito. "Dann baute er einen Raum auf der Veranda, und dann einen weiteren Raum darauf, und schon bald war alles miteinander verbunden. Ray verlegte seinen dreispurigen Recorder in einen der Räume und wir verwandelten den Stall in ein Studio, aber die beiden waren nie miteinander verbunden, also müssen wir immer noch hin und her schreien: "Läuft es, Ray?" wenn wir anfangen wollen." 

Einer von Link's festen Auftritten war im Two Thieves Club im Vorort Maryland. Dort wurde er von Steve Verocca gehört, einem Italiener, der nach Volare in die Staaten kam, einem italienischen Lied, das er angeblich in seiner Originalfassung von Domenico Modungo produziert hatte. "Ich war überwältigt von der Musik," sagte Verroca. "Hier sang ein Mann auf der Bühne seine Seele, also fragte ich ihn nach der Aufnahme eines Albums und er erzählte mir von seinen vergangenen Erfahrungen, und ich schlug vor, es im Shack zu machen. Ich glaube, Shack hat eine Seele. Man kann Leute auf der Platte rülpsen hören, und das ist großartig. Es ist echt."

Als Verroca die LP nicht platzieren konnte, wurde sie an Bob Feldman übergeben, der in den Strangeloves gewesen war und die Angels' My Boyfriend's Back produziert hatte. Feldman kannte Link, als sie Ende der 50er Jahre zusammen auf Tour waren, und war von der neuen Platte bewegt und fasziniert. "Ab und zu passiert Magie", sagte er. Angesichts der Rechte für neunzig Tage, platzierte er die LP bei der neuen amerikanischen Abteilung von Polydor Records. Lyrisch waren Wrays neue Songs nicht besonders stark, aber die funky, organische Stimmung war überzeugend. Wenn Rick Nelsons Neuerfindung noch im Charakter war; Wray's war eine komplette 180 Grad Drehung.
