“Link Wray And The Wraymen” by Link Wray and The Wraymen - album review

TJR says

Alas, the high watermark of 1958s “Rumble” was not maintained when the time came for the debut Link Wray LP. Having been dropped like a hot potato by Cadence, who did want not a rebel rouser on their books, Link re-recorded many of his tunes for Epic. Something’s not quite the same – performances are just that little more conservative. “Rumble” is re-recorded as “Ramble” and has turned into something more resembling a teen pop ballad than a soundtrack for razor-blade square-go. It’s still a great track – but could never hope to spark a blaze. “Raw-Hide” emerges as the album’s one moment of high-voltage adrenalin laden Rock n Roll. The album is a decent effort, but it’s not what it should have been…
