PostSubject: The Best of Johnny Thunders [Teichiku Records - CD; bootleg]   Tue Mar 08, 2011 4:07 am

JT Cyber Lounge - This is definitely not the best of Johnny Thunders. It's a compilation of B grade material that comes from demos and outtakes, all previously released. It covers the time period from early Dolls demos through early Heartbreakers demos and on to Johnny's acoustic period. It's 60 minutes long and comes with a nice booklet that is mostly in Japanese. If you have most of the regular stuff and you want to hear alternate versions them pick this up. Otherwise, avoid it and buy the normal commercial CDs or one of the many other compilations.  (K.C. - Thanks for sending this to me.)

The material on this CD comes from 5 sources:

1. Tracks 1-4: These are the first New York Dolls demos that were ever recorded. You can hear the original Dolls drummer Billy Murcia doing as good a job as Jerry Nolan. But these tracks don't really shine. They show the band just learning to play and you're better off hearing the legit recordings or later demos. These tunes have been released many times in various formats previous to this.

2. Tracks 5-8: This is interesting material because it's early Heartbreakers with Richard Hell on vocals and bass. It was taken from the 'Live At Mothers' CD that was recorded in 1976 in New York City. There were a number of Hell tunes done by the Heartbreakers at the time but only 'Blank Generation' made it onto this compilation. Get 'Live At Mothers' or 'What Goes Around' if you really want to hear this stuff.

3. Tracks 9-14: These tracks were taken from the 'In Cold Blood' sessions. Recorded as demos in mid 1982 at various studios they have been previously released many times. The 6 tracks here are the best of the sessions.

4. Tracks 15-19: This is acoustic material taken from the 'Hurt Me' CD.

5. Track 20: I haven't figured out where this is from. It's a live version of Chinese Rocks that sounds pretty good (although it doesn't sound like Johnny on lead vocals).

  1. Personality Crisis
  2. Looking For A Kiss

I am almost certain you are wrong about the songs 9-14. I know of the In Cold Blood demos,but not of the songs Too Much Junkiebusiness,Born to Lose and Do you love me. And I don't have this cd so I don't know where those songs are from but I can't imagine that he recorded those songs again as demos in 1982. I never heard of that.
