Yeah! He was a nut. Definitely one of my all-time favorite guitarists. Have you heard the "Missing Links" series that Norton Records put out? It's a bunch of un-released tracks from Link and his various projects. I think there are four volumes, and they're all amazing.

Yah, I have Volume 3. I think my fave Link Wray song is Hot Dog.... the lyrics are pure insanity.

I haven't been able to find an LP of it yet so haven't checked it out. The cover always fascinated me. I need to get The Magician's Birthday too.

I've got the first album and Salisbury which are cool but Demons & Wizards is my favourite. It took awhile to grow on me but now I love it. The Wizard is such a great tune been starting the day of with that for the last few weeks.

Killer album. Definitely one of his best piano records.
Did you ever hear Screamin' Jay Hawkins's cover of "Whistling Past the Graveyard"? It's pretty awesome, since I imagine Hawkins was one of Tom Waits's inspirations.

Oh! Yeah, that song is great. Adkins was a real maniac; I've read so many stories about him. His music was insane, too, but also amazing. Truly one-of-a-kind.

Hasil Adkins ruled. You guys see him in the Joe Coleman documentary Rest In Pieces?

Yeah man it sure is. You recommended that one to me awhile back after I mentioned I'd been listening to his album Victims Of The Fury.

Blue Valentine rules love that album. Big fan of Closing Time and Small Change too.

Have you heard Brant Bjork? I think you'd like his Gods & Goddesses album.



You can give it a trail run HERE.

Thank you, good sir Elvis.



One of my favorite bluesmen of all time. Shame he only recorded 18 sides. Just amazing, amazing stuff.





Dug this up the other day. A real classic.
