NEW YORK DOLLS – ACTRESS: THE BIRTH OF THE NEW YORK DOLLS (LP, GATEFOLD, PINK, RSD2021, RE) - NEW
RECORD STORE DAY 2021 GATEFOLD PINK VINYL LP LIMITED EDITION TO 500 COPIES
Raunchy glam band New York Dolls were the epitome of rock ‘n’ roll’s excess, prefacing punk’s rougher edges. Recorded in October 1971, when the group was still known as Actress, this essential LP is culled from demos cut before David Johansen and Sylvain Sylvain joined the group; along with two raw alternates of ‘It’s Too Late,’ there are eight otherwise unknown examples of their musical mayhem, as heard on ‘Why Am I Alone’ and guitar killer, ‘Coconut Grove.’ This is required listening for all Dolls fans, and especially Johnny Thunders devotees.
