BRUCE STEINBERG COLLECTION


Bruce's friendship with Link began in 1960 when Link and the Raymen were playing the "Animal House" parties at Cornell University.  They continued their close association thru Link's heyday in the DC area - cutting sides for Vernon's Vermillion releases and playing those "knife and gun clubs" like The Famous and Vinnie's.


In fact, when they reconnected in San Francisco in the early '70s, it was Bruce who encouraged Link to return to his roots, conceiving and co-producing Link's third and final Polydor LP in 1974, which they simply called "The Link Wray Rumble." 

Bruce also shot and designed the covers for both "The Link Wray Rumble" and the previous "Be What You Want To."  A gallery of selected photos that he shot in the '60s and '70s may be seen at http://brucesteinberg.com, and a personal discography of the many albums he's worked on through the years can be seen when you click here

Many of these photos are from that era, when Bruce and Link did a "whistle stop tour" in the summer of 1974, hitting radio stations up and down the East and Midwest, talking to music directors and DJ's to promote "The Link Wray Rumble."
