by Link Wray
I had an album in the 1970s called the guitar album On Polydor and it included a few Gems on it and here it is https://www.discogs.com/Various-The-Guitar-Album/release/2366161

Included on it was this track from legendary 1950s visionary guitarist Link Wray and his 1971 album was his first on Polydor and appears to have been his 6th Studio album.

It represented a change in direction for the man who howled feedback with the Rumble and as a result disoriented his fan base and didn’t enjoy much success

The style was a mixture of an Americana blend of blues, country, gospel, and folk rock, and the recording process, interesting “ The album was recorded in 1971 by Link's brother Vernon "Ray Vernon" Wray at "Wray's Shack Three Track", a three track studio Link Wray had converted from an old chicken shack on his farm in Accokeek, Maryland, and mixed by Chuck Irwin. During louder numbers, the recording team placed the speakers for Link Wray's guitar outside in the yard and miked the windows For a time no drum kit was available, so on several tracks the musicians stomped on the floor for the bass drum and shook a can of nails for the snare drum”

Like quite a few tracks on the Compilation I rather liked this which is actually a cover of a Willie Dixon tune (btw this account IS allowed to post covers....)
