• Link WRAY & The Wraymen - Jack the Ripper - The Singles 1957-1962 Plus...

LINK WRAY conquered ill-health (he suffered partially impaired hearing and eyesight, and had only one lung) to become one of the most influential R&R guitarists of all time.

He famously harnessed power chords and distortion to create an entirely new, brutal sound and style.

Rock luminaries like Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Pete Townshend, Neil Young, Iggy Pop, The Cramps, Jack Rose and JD McPherson have all acknowledged Link's crucial role.

This compilation anthologises all his singles released between 1957-62, plus various album tracks and rarities, including 45s recorded by Link, but credited to his brother, Ray Vernon.

Features the million-selling singles, 'Rumble' and 'Raw-Hide', plus regional hits like 'Comanche', 'Lillian' and 'Slinky', and the original version of 'Jack The Ripper', which would become a hit following its reissue in 1963.

Also includes rare earlier recordings, his debut 45 'I Sez Baby'/'Johnny Bom Bonny', and the unissued 'Hillbilly Wolf'.

His records have appeared in iconic movies like Pulp Fiction, Breathless, Independence Day, Pink Flamingos, Roadracers, Desperado, Blow, Streets Of Fire, 12 Monkeys, etc.
