Link Wray's 3-Track Shack
Not yet reviewed.
A 2CD set featuring three albums Link Wray recorded in the early 70s.
Wray, his brother Vernon and band decamped to his farm in Maryland where Vernon set up a three track recorder in an outhouse - the eponymous threetrack shack. Three albums resulted from the recording sessions. 1971's "Link Wray" was originally mooted for release on the Apple label but eventually came out on Polydor, as did " Mordecai Jones" a pseudonymous title that featured pianist Bobby Howard on vocals. "Beans and Fatback" was released by UK Virgin in 1973.
The music was radically different to what Link had previously recorded - raw and basic, but with vocals and acoustic instruments. His fan base didn't quite know what to make of it - resulting in these albums being the rarest of Link's catalogue.
These three albums have appeared on a 2CD set before but one track was not the correct one and all three albums were dubbed from LPs. This time, Ace has managed to track down the master tapes for all three and, at some expense; we present them in the finest sound possible.
