Personality Crisis

This collection is a set of live-in-the-studio recordings originally recorded in NYC, march 1973. These 21 songs give a better example of the Doll's strengths than their two studio albums proper. This is the Dolls, from Noo Yawk, live and raw, just the way God intended.
These sessions have been released many times before under titles such as Seven Day Weekend and Endless Party, but usually omitting the last three songs on this set. This time we lose Hootchie Cootchie Man from the set, but that would be due to the limitations in the maximum length of a CD, I suppose, and a good trade-off...
The sound, cover art and liner notes (by Marty Thau, the Dolls manager at the time) are also superior than on other previous releases of this material.
Very highly recommended, even if you have the material already. A real gem!

THANX for this brilliant share !!!!
Can you please put covers again because somehow they weren't zipped.
Thanx again ... and keep up the great work :)


Pour ceux qui aiment le son brut et pas trafiqué ! Sans doute un des meilleurs Dolls parallèles bien que ces bandes soient apparues sous diverses formes et labels avant que Norton s'en charge ...
On mesure exactement ici les "productions" de Todd et de Morton Et on se plaît à rêver à des Dolls produits par Vic Maile , Guy Stevens ou Jimmy Miller comme Thunders le sera d'ailleurs plus tard !
Excellent post Mr Ratboy69 !!!

This has always been one of my favourite NYD recordings.

To be honest, all you need to know about the Dolls is contained within the first album...and this.

Totally essential!
