Album: Duane Eddy, Road Trip (Mad Monkey)

The legendary twang guitarist's first album in 24 years mercifully contains none of the gimmicks used by his 1980s collaborators Art of Noise, just a timeless surf sound from producer, co-writer and obvious fan Richard Hawley.

Across 11 instrumentals – from lullabies to rockabilly rumbles – the 73-year-old and his tremolo arm still know how to make those six strings sing, and Hawley proves to be Eddy's most perfectly attuned partner since Lee Hazlewood.
