Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Link Wray - Stuck In Gear
|This album was issued in Europe during Link Wray's ballad period in 1975. It's not that Link couldn't do this material, it's just that his instro guitar work is sooo superior. The highlight is an intense and inspired rendition of "Jack The Ripper" that'll strip the paint right off your old woodie.|

Track by Track Review
"Jack The Ripper" pummels the grit out of you, and is electrifyingly hot. Much like the live Record Plant version (it's from the same time period), this is extremely tough and powerful. The guitar just screams "go ahead, just try to top this" while Link grins with the confidence only an underrated legend can. Amazing!
