Album Review

Duane Eddy's debut album, Have 'Twangy' Guitar, Will Travel, was a good value by the standards of the era, with several of his early hits and favorites ("Rebel Rouser," "Cannonball," "Ramrod," "Movin' and Groovin'," and "Three-30-Blues ") included. Many of the songs, though, appear on whatever greatest-hits anthology you're likely to pick up; Rhino's Twang Thang, for instance, has no less than nine of the 12 tracks. The 1999 CD reissue (which is in stereo) adds three 1958 B-sides that aren't always likely to show up on anthologies — "Up and Down," "The Walker," and "Mason-Dixon Line" — as well as historical liner notes. The album was also issued on a two-fer CD by Motown, teamed with the 1960 album $1,000,000 Worth of Twang.

It's great to see this on I-tunes. I bought this one back in the day and still have it and it's still in great shape. Duane at his best - and on his first release to boot!!

Just plain COOL!!!!

I remember listening to this with my Dad. He bought the original vinyl back in 58. It was this and all those Johnny Cash albums that formed my taste in music. I have the old vinyl put away so I am glad I found this. If you like tuff guitar than this is for you. This a must listen for all future rock/blues guitarist.

If Duane Eddy's instrumental hits from the late '50s can sound unduly basic and repetitive (especially when taken all at once), he was vastly influential. Perhaps the most successful instrumental rocker of his time, he may have also been the man most responsible (along with Chuck Berry) for popularizing the electric rock guitar. His distinctively low, twangy riffs could be heard on no less than 15 Top 40 hits between 1958 and 1963. He was also one of the first rock stars to successfully crack the...
