Overview

In 1970, legendary rock guitarist Link Wray was recruited by veteran rockabilly singer and lyricist Joey Welz to collaborate on an album called Listen to the Voices That Want to Be Free, which also featured Link's brothers and longtime musical partners Vernon Wray (bass, rhythm guitar) and Doug Wray (drums). The original release was credited to Joey Welz, with the Wray brothers listed as session players, but in 2005, the material from the Listen to the Voices sessions was reissued by Welz under the title Brothers and Legends: Listen to the Voices That Want to Be Free, now credited to Joey Welz and Link Wray. In 2013, the recordings surfaced again as Rumble & Roll, with the billing changed to "Link Wray with Joey Welz." This music recalls the laid-back stomp of Wray's early-'70s work for Polydor rather than the feral guitar workouts of his classic '50s sides (though Wray does amble through a remake of "Rumble"), and Welz's lyrics are back-to-the-land country-rock fare, except for a few tunes that recall his '50s roots.
