The Heartbreakers' 1977 classic album 'L.A.M.F. the lost '77 mixes' - (Remastered) Johnny Thunders & Jerry Nolan formed the Heartbreakers in 1975 out of the ashes of the New York Dolls. Firstly they were together with Richard Hell, and then teamed up with Billy Rath & Walter Lure. Malcolm McLaren, who'd managed the Dolls, invited them join the Sex Pistols, Clash & Damned in the UK for the infamous 'Anarchy' tour in 1976. Staying in London at the heart of the punk scene for the following year, 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' caused by a mastering fault. A properly audible version remained unheard until 1994 when Jungle sifted through the original master-tapes and reconstructed it. Johnny had died in 1991, followed by Jerry's death in 1992. Their influence on the punk scene in 1977 has permeated through to today's new rock'n'roll scene, with many artists over the years citing 'L.A.M.F.' as a huge influence. The album regularly appears in lists of the Best Punk Albums, such as in both Mojo and Q. The vinyl album comes in a gatefold sleeve with notes by Thunders & New York Dolls biographer Nina Antonia. Her official biography 'Johnny Thunders - In Cold Blood' is due for reissue on kindle.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Album is great music not noticeably better than 1977 release except for bass. Extra tracks a great bonus.

I bought this album way back in the day.
The mix was bad, but you could still feel the vibe.
Now, this remix blows you to the back of the room.
You can hear everything.
Should you get this album...
Bought this in 1977 on vinyl when it first came out. The sound on vinyl has since beed described as being encased in mud, although the songs were so good they still came through. Decades later it is generally accepted that it was a pressing problem at the factory. The sound on cd is now faultless. Just a pity that johnny and jerry never gor to hear it.
Comes with two extra tracks that were not on the original vinyl release.
Most stuff from this era has not stood the test of time. This has, and more.
