Link Wray (1929-2005), born of Shawnee Native -American parents, was an American rock and rorguitarist, songwriter and vocalist who became popular in the late 1950s. Building on the distorted electric guitar sound of early records, his 1958 instrumental hit 'Rumble' (banned in New York and Boston for fear it would incite teenage gang violence) — popularized 'the power chord' which laid he foundation for modern rock music.

Link's previous releases had proven the man's versatility with influences coming from many different genres including R&B, country, blues, and, of course, rock. 'Be What You Want To' continues this trend: a thick stew of boogie--rock, country-funk and Americana with lots of soul which also employs a large number of musicians including Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia, Thomas Jefferson Kaye and Commander Cody.

Link Wray leaves a legacy as big as his career: Rolling Stone placed Wray at No.45 of the 100 greatest guitarists of all time and in 2013 he was a nominee for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Pete Townshend of The Who once said, "If it hadn't been for Link Wray and 'Rumble', I never would have picked up a guitar." Other musicians citing him as a major influence are Iggy Pop, Neil Youngand Jimmy Page.

Polydor 24-4064 (LP)

 

Link Wray played the most important D chord in history: it opened Rumble. Guitarists often remember where they were when they first heard it. Thirteen years later, Wray signed with the newly-launched American division of Polydor, and his back porch sound could almost have emanated from another Link Wray. The extended Wray family was living almost communally on the family farm near Accokeek, Maryland, an hour south of Washington. "Papa started building a chicken coop and a porch on the house," Link told Tom Zito in 1971. "Then he built a room onto the porch, and then another room onto that and pretty soon it was all connected. Ray moved his three-track recorder into one of the rooms and we converted the coop into a studio, but the two were never connected so we still have to yell back and forth, 'Is it running, Ray?' every time we want to start."

 One of Link's steady gigs was at the Two Thieves Club in suburban Maryland. There, he was heard by Steve Verocca, an Italian who'd come to the States in the wake of Volare, an Italian song he claimed to have produced in its original version by Domenico Modungo. "I was overwhelmed by [Link's] music," said Verroca. "Here was a man on-stage singing out his soul, so I asked him about recording an album and he told me about his past experiences, and I suggested we do it at the Shack. I believe the Shack has a soul. You can hear people burping on the record, and that's great. It's real."

When Verroca had no success placing the LP, it was handed to Bob Feldman, who'd been in the Strangeloves and had produced the Angels' My Boyfriend's Back. Feldman had known Link when they were touring together in the late '50s, and was both moved and intrigued by the new record. "Every so often, magic happens," he said. Given the rights for ninety days, he placed the LP with the new American division of Polydor Records. Lyrically, Wray's new songs weren't especially strong, but the funky, organic vibe was compelling. If Rick Nelson's reinvention was still in character; Wray's was a complete 180 degree turn.
