Johnny Thunders And The Heartbreakers - L.A.M.F.:The Lost '77 Mixes

His greatest bequest to rock'n'roll bar The New York Dolls' first album, Thunders' 1977 post-Dolls debut L.A.M.F (that's "Like A Mother Fucker") is unquestionably one of THE great punk albums. However, its original mix was notoriously ropey—so bad Thunders tried to rectify it with 1984's L.A.M.F. Revisited. Representing the album that should have been, these lost mixes therefore illuminate the savage beauty of the likes of "Born To Lose" and "Pirate Love" like never before.

Fantastic.
