Ray Vernon: All Wrays Lead To Rock - The Link Wray Connection (CD)

​1-CD Digipak with 28-page booklet, 34 individual tracks, playing time approx. 78:30 min.

  • Ray Vernon - Bear Family dedicates a complete CD album to Link Wray's big brother for the first time!
  • Really everyone who is interested in rock guitarists knows Link Wray - see Bear Family BCD17600. 
  • Ray Vernon was a talented singer and producer, his career closely linked to that of his guitar-playing brother. 
  • In the 1960s, he produced numerous recordings on the U.S. East Coast by his brother Link and by rockabilly star Marvin Rainwater, The Dial Tones, The British Walkers, The Moon Men, The Wray Brothers and Ray Men.
  • Carefully researched liner notes by Bill Dahl in the illustrated booklet and sensitively restored recordings.

Serious talent ran in the Wray family. We all know the mighty Link Wray, king of the power chord and as bone-crushing a rock guitarist as ever came down the pike. But we all owe a debt of gratitude to his big brother, who went by the handle of Ray Vernon. Not only was Ray a talented vocalist who briefly tried to gain traction as a '50s teen idol on Philly's Cameo label, he guided Link's career during the '60s and produced classic 45s on his sibling as well as the considerably less familiar artists featured on Bear Family's ‘All Wrays Lead To Rock,' a 34-song extravaganza spotlighting Vernon's prodigious studio skills. 

Working out of Washington, D.C. and then a basement studio in Accokeek, Maryland, Ray Vernon helmed gems by The Dial Tones, The British Walkers, The Moon Men, The Wray Brothers and Ray Men (naturally), even rockabilly hero Marvin Rainwater. Perhaps Ray's crowning achievement (other than producing some of Link's greatest instrumentals) were the six crunching sides he cut on R&B vocalist Bunker Hill (actually lapsed gospel singer David Walker), including the thundering two-part 1962 hit Hide & Go Seek—and they're all aboard this collection (as are some of Ray's own fine vocal efforts). Nail down your furniture--The Wray brothers are here to shake the foundations of your domicile!
