Easy Eye Sound is proud to release the legendary Link Wray lost tracks “Vernon’s Diamond” recorded between 1958-59 at the Broadway Recording Studio in NYC and “My Brother, My Son” recorded in 1970 at Fred Foster Studios in Nashville, TN.

In late 1958, Link was in New York for a gig. He walked into Broadway Recording Studio and laid down the song, “Vernon’s Diamond,” which was cut live to 45 acetate disc. The disc sat on a shelf for 60 years before being recently discovered. One label had a typewritten title, “A Cook for Mr. General,,” that was crossed out, and the title “Vernon’s Diamond,” had been handwritten in ink across it. Broadway Recording Studio was located at 1697 Broadway. The studio was located in the Ed Sullivan Building, which was the same building where CBS broadcast the Kraft Mystery Theater show in the ‘50s. One of the episode's broadcast was entitled “A Cook for Mr. Generall". Acetate discs were hand-cut and labeled in the studio. Keeping with Link’s practice of re-naming versions of his music throughout the years, “A Cook for Mr. General” transformed into “Vernon’s Diamond.” Then, recorded again later, was renamed one more time and became Link’s “Ace of Spades.”

Said Dan Auerbach of Wray’s importance, “I saw him play in Cleveland at the Grog Shop, and he blew my mind. To get the chance to put out unreleased songs on Easy Eye Sound is amazing and a dream I never thought was possible. It’s time we give Link Wray a statue on the top of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.” “Vernon’s Diamond” is a never-released track from the Link Wray Archives. This song, along with another never heard track, "My Brother, My Son," as the B-side, is releasing as a 7-inch vinyl on Record Store Day.
