ROBERT GORDON and LINK WRAY: TWO GREAT NEW 40th ANNIVERSARY RELEASES CONTAINING ESSENTIAL UNRELEASED RECORDINGS FROM THE VAULTS!

It’s now over 40 years ago that Robert Gordon and Link Wray rocked the world with their two groundbreaking albums, “Robert Gordon with Link Wray” and “Fresh Fish Special”. Their remarkable sound, combining the raw original rockabilly sounds with tough punk rock edges, truly stood out in the disco era and signaled the beginning of the second rockabilly wave, opening the doors for acts like The Stray Cats and Shakin’ Stevens. The pairing of Robert’s powerful baritone voice and Link’s ferocious guitar-playing was and remains totally unique, and it’s a tribute to their artistry that their recordings still sound so fresh and dynamic today.

To mark that 40th anniversary, Growlin’ Guitar is releasing two essential new albums containing unreleased material from the vaults, some of it having resurfaced quite recently. We are proud to be able to present these unique, never-before-released recordings in two handsome digipacks, richly illustrated with previously unpublished photos, memorabilia and relevant recording & musician data. For the fans of both artists, these releases are a collectors’ dream come true, and the most significant releases in ages.

Gordon Robert And Link Wray - Their First Nationwide Tour: Armadillo World Headquarters Austi, TX Nov. 6, 1977 (CD)

20,00

”THEIR FIRST NATIONWIDE TOUR: ARMADILLO WORLD HEADQUARTERS, AUSTIN, TX, NOVEMBER 9, 1977

” features an fantastic, never-before released concert from their first tour across the US. Robert and Link were getting rave reviews in publications like ’Rolling Stone’, and their first hit ’Red Hot’ was doing well in the charts. This Austin gig was particularly significant in that a lot of great musicians were in the crowd, including both Vaughan brothers. And Robert and Link were ready, and rocked the audience with songs like ’Summertime Blues’, ’The Fool’ and ’Baby Let’s Play House’. A real surprise is the first-ever version of ’The Way I Walk’, performed here one month before they recorded it. The ambient live recording really places you in that Texas crowd on that memorable night. Also included are a selection of tracks from their Chicago gig on the same tour, as well as the rare ’Don Kirshner Rock Concert’ broadcast.

This historically important recording is packaged in a beautiful digipack with relevant photos, liner notes, recording data and memorabilia from the concert.
