Product Description

Johnny Thunders & The Heartbreakers,L.A.M.F. - Special Edition! The Heartbreakers' 1977 classic album 'L.A.M.F. the lost '77 mixes' re-released as a special deluxe 2xCD edition with a bonus CD containing demos, rehearsals and outtakes. ,Johnny Thunders & Jerry Nolan formed the Heartbreakers in 1975 out of the ashes of the New York Dolls. Firstly together with Richard Hell, and then with Billy Rath & Walter Lure. Malcolm McLaren invited them join the Sex Pistols, Clash & Damned for the Anarchy tour in 1976. They signed to Track Records and recorded 'L.A.M.F.' The album was acclaimed as a classic, but was famously flawed with a 'muddy mix'. A properly audible version remained unheard until 1994 when Jungle sifted through the original master-tapes and reconstructed it., The bonus disc 2 features alternative mixes, and two demo sessions from early and late 1977. It also includes previously unheard instrumental backing tracks. It comes with a 24-p booklet, with notes by Nina Antonia and the lyrics to all Heartbreakers songs and notes by the Heartbreakers' guitarist Walter Lure.,Johnny died in 1991,followed by Jerry's death in 1992. ,TRACK-LIST: DISC 1: 'L.A.M.F.': Born To Lose,Baby Talk,All By Myself,I Wanna Be Loved,It's Not Enough,Chinese Rocks,Get Off The Phone,Pirate Love,One Track Mind,I Love You,Goin' Steady,Let Go,Can't Keep My Eyes On You,Do You Love Me; MPEG video: Chinese Rocks. BONUS DISC 2: Demos: Born To Lose,Chinese Rocks,Let Go,Studio rehearsals: Goin Steady (instr),Baby Talk (instr),Pirate Love (instr),Born To Lose (instr),Chinese Rocks (instr),Do You Love Me,Live: Can't Keep My Eyes On You,Alternative Mixes: Get Off The Phone,All By Myself,It's Not Enough,One Track Mind,Demos: Too Much Junkie Business,London Boys. UNCUT five-star review: "Unquestionably one of THE great punk albums. These lost mixes illuminate the savage beauty of the likes of 'Born To Lose' and 'Pirate Love' like never before. Fantastic."

5.0 out of 5 stars "Punk's lost treasure" 25 Nov 2005
Format:Audio CD
Finding it hard to get a contract in the States due to their well documented heroin addictions the Heartbreakers were offered a slot on the infamous "Anarchy tour" that included the Pistols,the Clash and the Damned.
When the tour shuddered to a halt due to "public outrage" the group were left standed and broke in England.
They then went into the studio and recorded one of the finest displays of snarling,spitting and sheer exciting "rock+ roll" ever put down on record.
Unfortunately the mix was so bad that even though critics raved about the songs the sheer energy and power of the record could not shine through.
Johnny Thunders and Tony James went back into the studio in 1984
to remix the original tapes and the result of that is "L.A.M.F REVISITED" a disappointing effort that did nothing for the records tarnished reputation.
This problem has now been rectified by the magnificent work of the people at "Jungle Records".
The record sounds as fresh and exciting as the day it was recorded.
Does it matter now after all these years?
Yes! As a historical document it is a brilliant summmation of everything punk was about and it can still set the pulses racing.
L.A.M.F. in fact!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Deal 10 May 2009
Format:Audio CD
This is my favourite album of all time, it's the Ramones with extra chords and great playing and this is from someone who was there in 76/77 and buying all the Punk singles / albums releases including the Pistols, Damned, Clash, Buzzcocks etc.

Forget the New York Dolls, this was drummer Jerry Nolan's finest hour (and he was by far best musician in the Dolls) the power he projects is unbelievable, like a punk John Bonham. (Many Punk bands tried to do Dolls covers at the time but couldn't because the drum patterns were too complicated) The mix of Walter Lure's expert lead guitar and Thunders unique, sonic sarcastic tone guitar is a joy. Forget the drug stories and the later sad decline of the two Ex Dolls, at the time they recorded this they were unbelievably tight and powerful having practiced / gigged in New York endlessly. This is why they were held in such awe by the Pistols and the Clash and other punks at the time they originally came over for the Anarchy tour. This even more than the Pistols album or Clash first album (great albums that they are) is the real deal. Play it loud.

5.0 out of 5 stars Often copied.....never equalled. 19 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
If you're only gonna record one studio album, then it might as well be as good as this. The legendary Heartbreakers crashed into London boots first at the heart of 77 punk scene. At a time when the capital was oozing great bands out of every pour, Johnny Thunders and the boys more then held their own with their blistering live performances. Snapped up by the ill-fated Track records (who went tits-up not long after this album was released) they were put in a studio to try and capture the sound that had been mesmerising everyone who saw them. The original version of LAMF suffered from a flat muddy mix that just didn't do justice to the songs - this must have been especially galling to Thunders as he'd been let down by inferior production problems on both the New York Dolls albums. With Track going bust and the Heartbreakers visas running out they had no choice but to return home and lick their wounds - where they subsequently imploded. Tony James had a crack at repairing the damage to LAMF in the 80s, but it still wasn't quite right. So we find ourselves in the new millennium and like all legends, the album simply refused to die (unfortunately Thunders and Nolan who both ignored that particular cliché and headed for the great gig in the sky in the early 90s) it deserved more, the songs were just too good to be left in that state - probably due to the fact that all new music is RUBBISH (yes I am over 40 and no I don't give a monkeys for what any of you think - you're all wrong anyway) someone decided something must be done. And as if my magic, the original mixes are discovered, the directors cut if you will. In all their trashy, swaggering, `don't cha wish you were as good as us' glory. AT LAST!!!!

This is the definitive Heartbreakers, the one we should have had the first time round. Great music played by one of the tightest, sleaziest rock n roll bands of all time. Johnny Thunders may have left the building, but his guitar sound will live forever!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sleazy one fingered salue 22 Mar 2011
By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Fast paced rock and roll riffed out as the Sonics and Link Wray intended. The Heartbreakers are American music before it became sanitised by Beatles harmonies. This record says nothing about the state of the outer world. The American punks were all about something else, internal chaos of the 24/7 non stop party of booze, drugs and sex. The type of lifestyle that would eventually claim the lives of the Dolls and the Heartbreakers but hey, you could've ended up being an accountant? In some cases it is a sprint and not a marathon?

This is speeded up Dolls riffs with a punk sneer aimed at everything held sacred in the American Protestant Work Ethic; black sexual music, drinking to excess, drug taking, dancing, screaming, shouting and humping. It cocks its snoot at all forms of self denial letting its Dionysian cloven hooves bang onto the glass coffee table, shattering the mirage.

Instead of pulling out a flute, this struts the world stage with an electric gibson. Those guitar shapes move up and down the fret in bar E whilst the strings are bent to produce The Troggs Wild Thing sounds of buzz, fuzz and bang, the sounds of 1977 tempting young nubiles of all sexes to shed their clothes in orgiastic frenzy.

The songs deal with outsiderdom as Beatniks cum punks; Born To Lose, Chinese Rocks set the bad tone, early death and drug use. In between is a pause for the ongoing party of lust; Baby Talk, All by Myself, I wanna be loved, one track mind, I love you, can't keep my eyes on you, do you love me? They could be song titles by the Kings of Ennui "Bread," but when the riffing gets flowing these are odes to a bachanal rather than drowning in lite beer in fake insincerity on one bended knee with a trimmed beard.
