‘Born Too Loose’ - the best of Johnny Thunders
Johnny Thunders, the legendary late New York Dolls guitarist who found further infamy with The Heartbreakers in London after joining the Sex Pistols’ Anarchy tour, has for the first time all the highlights of his often wayward solo career gathered together on one CD. And as a bonus, it’s packaged with a second disc of unreleased recordings, including 3 recently discovered Heartbreakers studio tracks.
Disc one features favourite Heartbreakers tracks such as Born To Lose, Chinese Rocks and Pirate Love from ‘L.A.M.F.’, plus In Cold Blood and Diary Of A Lover recorded by Stones’ producer Jimmy Miller. The album contrasts Johnny’s wild rock’n’roll persona with his gentler, melodic side with songs from the acoustic album ‘Hurt Me’; and has 60’s covers Crawfish and Born To Cry from his album with Patti Palladin, ‘Copy Cats’. Including Little Bit Of Whore, You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A Memory and more, the album fills a void as a great introduction to Johnny Thunders.
Disc two is a real bonus for those who need no introduction, with some never-before-heard Heartbreakers studio recordings from 1977: London Boys, (about the Sex Pistols after they wrote New York about the Dolls), Too Much Junkie Business, and Great Big Kiss. Added to some helter-skelter live in ’77 Heartbreakers recordings, some acoustic live and studio sessions, and a live in Italy show with the Pistols’ Glen Matlock on bass, these unreleased tapes are a feast for Johnny Thunders fans.
The double-CD (at single-CD price) includes a 16-page booklet with notes by biographer Nina Antonia and a 20-year diary resumé of Johnny’s life. Nina’s updated biography ‘Johnny Thunders - In Cold Blood’ is available on Cherry Red Books.
