"I need a fix – and a kiiiiiiiiiissssssss!" What can we say? Johnny Thunders, David Johansen and the boys reinvented the wheel with the of wildly hedonist glam skronk spun on this still incredible debut record. Both records they made for Mercury are incredible, but this is the bonafide masterpiece. It's a classic purely on a primal rock 'n' roll level, but it's also one of rock's greatest examples of style equaling substance! The Dolls brought glammer to the gutter and vice versa, and this is no doubt their greatest moment! Includes "Personality Crisis", "Looking For A Kiss", "Trash", "Frankenstein", "Pills", "Bad Girl", "Private World" and "Jet Boy". Produced by Todd Rundgren and engineered by Jack Douglas – the former a legend in his own right, the latter whose name appears on so many great records that range from other proto-punk and punk-era classics (Patti Smith Group, The Runaways) to the trashier side of the mainstream (prime early Cheap Trick, Aerosmith and Alice Cooper).  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Poppy, 1970. New Copy Gatefold (reissue)
Way more than just the standard psych album of the time – and instead a richly-orchestrated album with sounds as complicated as the MC Escher cover image!

Probe, 1969. New Copy (reissue)
Dark-edged psychedelia from Steve Morgen – a record that's awasy in hard drums, heavy guitar, and a really aggressive sort of sound! There's a nicely fuzzy, nicely acid quality to the record – one that has the guitar and vocals sometimes tripping out – but still always pushed ... LP, Vinyl record album

The styles are often quite unusual – with Latin ... LP, Vinyl record album
Roaratorio, Mid 60s-Mid 70s. New Copy Gatefold
A second great anthology for "song poems" king Rodd Keith!

Moody synth soundscapes from Espectrostatic – aka Alex Cuervo, of punk & garage groups The Hex Dispensers, Blacktop, This Damn Town & Feast of Snakes.

Norton, Late 50s/Early 60s. New Copy
Great rockabilly sounds from a tiny Texas label – an imprint so small it only pressed up 300 copies of each of its singles – and never reissued them at all!
