LINK WRAY – The Pathway Sessions [1989/07]

Link-Wray-The-Pathway-Sessions

Bruce Brand – Thee Milkshakes, Headcoats, Mighty Caesar’s drummer and all round musician – plays everything [Rhythm Guitar, Drums, Harmonica, Bass Guitar, Piano] but solo guitar on these 1989. recordings.
They were issued in ’89. as 2 LPs [“Apache” & “Wild Side Of The City LightS”], at the time and with the new technology now available, they have been remixed by Rob Keyloch who engineered 1997’s “Shadowman”. This has brought out the full power of the Link Wray guitar and beefed up the sound considerably.
Pathway studio has always been regarded as London’s answer to Sun with its distinct sound and 8 track analogue technology.
Link only made one other studio album in the 80s and these recordings are by far and away the best of that decade from him.
Here you gotta deal with Links’ ace instro stuff as The Wild One, Shawnee, The Joker, Green Hornet, Hotel Loneliness, The Flying Wedge (Drag Race), American Sunset, Viva Zapata as well as fine vocal tunes Beautiful Brown Eyes & Elvis covers Little Sister & Love Me Tender.

Listen to the GROWL, Listen To The BEAT! Dig!!!
