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

Artist description "Wray, Link"

LINK WRAY

La De Da

recorded October 1970 at Wray's Shack Three Track, Accokeek, Maryland; Producers: Steve Verroca and Ray Vernon in association with Bob Feldman

with Lincoln 'Link' Wray: vocal/guitars/Dobro/bass; Billy Hodges: piano/organ/ backing vocal; Bobbie Howard: mandolin/piano; Doug Wray: drums/backing vocal; Steve Verroca: percussion/backing vocal

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.
