Robert Gordon and Link Wray: Robert Gordon with Link Wray

Jon Young, Trouser Press, October 1977

ROBERT GORDON with Link Wray recaptures the one elusive quality so often missing from music of the '70s: feeling. This is trickier than it seems at first. Nobody wants to hear a soppy fool but if you act too cool, who cares anyway? Robert treads this dangerous line successfully most of the time, with considerable help from Link.
