Link Wray - Ace of Spades/The Fuzz!

Here's another one from my recent record haul. It features one of my favorite instrumentals of all time on the b-side. The Fuzz. The guitar tone on this one gets me every time. It's a great mid-tempo throbber of a song.

The a-side aint too shabby either. I think this is the dirtier, fuzzier version of Ace of Spades. It also has some harmonica which makes it a lot different than the other versions of Ace of Spades. I think Link recorded this song 3 times (4 if you count fatback). I like this version a lot since it ends like a 60's garage punk tune.

Think Link.
