New York Doll Thunders Copy Cats LP Reissued

Johnny Thunders and Patti Palladin's 1988 "Copy Cats" tribute collection of songs is to be made available for the first time in eight years later this month.

The album features their homage to artists and bands the rock pair grew up with in New York.

The eclectic covers that even late DJ John Peel declared "better than the originals" include Elvis Presley's "Crawfish" and "Alligator Wine" by Screaming Jay Hawkins.

Other highlights are The Shirelles "Baby It's You" which features guest backing vocals by The Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde and a version of The Chambers Brothers' "Uptown Harlem" which features Only Ones guitarist John Perry.

"Copy Cats" is reissued on May 28 through Jungle Records.
