New Yorkers Johnny Thunders, Ex- of the Heartbreakers and New York Dolls and Patti Palladin, Ex- of Snatch and a Former Brian Eno Collaborator, were Both Exiled in London. They Recorded this Affectionate Tribute to the American Songs of the 50’s and 60’s, with Covers of the Seeds, Screaming Jay Hawkins, the Shangri-la’s, Dion, Chambers Brothers, Roy Head, Elvis, the Shirelles, etc. Maybe this was as close as Thunders ever got to that New Orleans dream band he was finally ready to assemble on the eve of his death. Because here, in this cd, lies that swamp rock sound with a cherry on top and a smile on the side.

had this on cassette back in the was the first thing i'd heard by being a youngster (and what with being a young southern boy that fancied myself a "deathrocker") when it came out...had heard Patty on the batcave comp "young hyms for loose limbs" or some such title...always have preferred JT's voice on this over all other recordings...oh, what might have been...thanks for the great post!

Menos killer a lo que nos tenía acostumbrado, pero atesorable también. Muchas gracias. Merci.
