The final entry in Norton Records' excellent MISSING LINKS four-volume set of Link Wray rarities and unreleased tracks, 1997's STREETS OF CHICAGO is hardly the dregs from the bottom of the barrel. Indeed, this 17-song collection of previously unissued live tracks and studio rarities may be the best of the bunch! Unlike the previous volumes, STREETS OF CHICAGO focuses exclusively on Wray's artistic prime, which ran from 1959 to 1965. This all-meat, no-filler collection has no "interesting curiosities" or tracks included for their "historical value," just almost 60 minutes' worth of scorching fuzz-guitar instrumentals. Bracketed by the two-part rave-up "Friday Night Dance Party," STREETS OF CHICAGO is evenly divided between exciting live tracks--mostly covers, including brilliant takes on "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" and "Drown In My Own Tears"--and equally compelling studio outtakes.
