Night Music: Rumble

To be honest, this isn’t a great track. However it IS the only instrumental ever banned on US radio and that makes it worth listening to.  Thanks to Open Culture for the lead and you can read the story here.

    My guess is that most people would have heard a Link Wray track but didn’t know who it was.
    His influence was massive and international back in a time when rock and roll was flexing in so many directions and artists were not afraid to take risks.

    While groups like the Beach Boys, Jan and Dean, the Ventures etc
    made the big bucks I would take a Link Wray show at some roadhouse over any of them. Throw in the Blasters and Shakin’ Stevens and you would need a week to recover.
