Instrumental Rock And Roll CDs and Vinyl Records

Instrumental Rock'n'Roll - Did you lose the vocals? And where's Dick Dale?

Instrumental Rock'n'Roll works it out without a voice?', one might ask and the next question is right on the tongue: 'Where's Dick Dale?' Ok, hold on, Dick Dale is Rock'n'Roll and he is special, he invented the Surf guitar into Rock'n'Roll! So we opened another category - He's Surf Rock, filed under Surf. And yeah, instrumental means without vocals - The leading instrument is 'singing' instead - Mostly guitar, sometimes piano or saxophone or whatever. You really should check it out as instrumentals are fine music and mostly underrated!

Go get the huge variety of Instrumental Rock'n'Roll in this category of Bear Family's mailorder catalogue. No matter if it's Duane Eddy's twangy guitar sound which seems to be recorded somewhere out deep down in a canyon or Link Wray, the founder of the buzzy, fuzzy, heavy guitar sound in the big Instrumental Rock'n'Roll field tearing up the volume button of his amp.

Classic Instrumental Rock'n'Roll and Obscurities

And there are millions of obscure 1950s and 1960s garage instrumental bands from all over the US and Europe! We have great Rockabilly instrumentals by guitar aces like Joe Maphis, Scotty Moore and James Burton as well as the Piano-Country-Rock'n'Roll-Boogie-Instrumentals á la Floyd Cramer! Beyond that we have the Saxophone-A-Rama of a 'Boots' Randolph, and last but not least the Memphis Go-Go sounds of Travis Wammack, Lonnie Mack and Booker T. & The MG's!

All classic Instrumental Rock'n'Roll smash hits and its famous interpreters like Johnny & The Hurricanes, The Champs, The Ventures, Roy Buchanan, The Shadows, The Spotnicks, Billy Strange etc., plus a lot of interesting CD-album series, sometimes with obscure sound material and of course many rarities. You get it all where? At Bear Family for sure! And not only as CDs but as vinyl records at 33rpm or 45rpm singles!
