Robert Gordon

NEWLY DISCOVERED LINK MUSIC!

GORDONsomething1
The brand new Robert Gordon double CD “Somethin’ Else” features what is billed as a “full” Robert Gordon and Link Wray live concert recording from 1978. The CD ads state this unreleased Gordon / Wray concert is from January 20, 1978 in Rotterdam, NL. However, the photo included in the ads (below) was shot in Canada. The only record LinkWray.com has of a Gordon / Wray gig in Rotterdam that year is a two date stand in June at the Exit Club - but it is certainly possible they played Rotterdam twice that year.

You will find the track listings below. The first disc consists of a studio session from around 2012 with Robert, and the second disc is the concert featuring Link. All tracks on the second disc feature Link on guitar - but it’s interesting to note that FOUR solo Link live tracks are on this disc - RUMBLE and BABY WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO are the two standard numbers Link did on tour with Robert. It’s interesting to note that this disc also features LAWDY MISS CLAWDY and RAWHIDE live - interesting, as this would mark the first live recording of Link doing LAWDY MISS CLAWDY live.

We will have more to report as soon as we get a copy in-hand, as right now it’s only available in very limited numbers from overseas vendors.
