The Moonrays - It's Love Baby / What's Your Name

This is a pretty good lil' 45 that got buried in my collection and retrieved when I was looking for the Moonglows. Don't know anything about it's backstory, but I pick up a bit of a Link Wray influence on both.

It's Love Baby is rockin' love tune with a stompin' pace to it.

What's Your Name has the same gist, but an instrumental with louder raspy guitar. Gotta love the pounding drums

Good one.

This was released in 1958 according to the discography here:


The main label was Nashboro, and they also had subsidiaries like a-bet. I'm pretty sure that Ace has a whole comp of stuff from those labels.
