Album Notes
The late New York Dolls guitarist Johnny Thunders made the live BOOTLEGGING THE BOOTLEGGERS to head actual bootleggers off at the pass. With goofy-voiced introductions from Thunders himself, the songs are a shambling mess of tossed-off acoustic poetry, druggy R&B, and gutter rock & roll. In addition to a few covers, like the Stones's "As Tears Go By" and the surf classic "Wipeout," are the New York Dolls standard "Personality Crisis" as well as Thunders originals. The sound quality varies wildly from song to song (even with the remastering), but part of the charm is the raw grit in Thunders's ragged performances.

*Compiled and introduced by Johnny Thunders*

Johnny Thunders, ex- of the Heartbreakers & New York Dolls, was fed up with so many live albums around that he didn’t see any money from.  So he compiled his own one from his favourite performances from around the world, and made sure he got a fat fee from Jungle. 

Johnny then made it unique by recording introductions to each track with his usual wit and wisdom.  Along with comments on the songs and personality insights, on the last track he gives his explanation for the album.  And mischievously, he insisted that his intros to surf classics ‘Pipeline’ and ‘Wipe Out’ remained reversed.

The album has been unavailable on CD for 8 years, and is now remastered and repackaged with previously unseen pics and re-issued at a low price.  It includes ’Personality Crisis’, ‘You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory’, ’Sad Vacation’ and many other favourites.

Johnny first found notoriety with the New York Dolls in 1972-75.  He then formed the Heartbreakers with Jerry Nolan (& briefly, Richard Hell); they came to London in 1976 to tour with The Sex Pistols and stayed for a year, recording the classic ‘L.A.M.F.’ album. 

Solo albums ‘So Alone’, ‘Hurt Me’ and ‘Que Sera Sera’ followed, along with an acclaimed covers album ‘Copy Cats’ with Patti Palladin.  Johnny died in 1991 but his legacy as a unique rock’n’roll icon continues to grow over time. 

14 songs: 
M.I.A.,  In Cold Blood/Stepping Stone/Hit The Road Jack,  Personality Crisis,  Joey Joey, Sad Vacation,  Little Queenie,  Pipeline,  Just Another Girl,  You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory,  As Tears Go By,  I Can Tell,  Wipe Out.

Multiple items postage
If you are ordering multiple items, there will be automatic approximated reduction in postage costs – but make sure you order them together, not individually.  If the estimate still looks excessive, don't pay but click on the 'Request total from seller' button in the shopping basket.  We'll then recalculate the costs for your combined items postage and send you an invoice.  The postage may or may not calculate as less; we’re trying to refine the accuracy of the automation.
