Johnny Thunders: After the Dolls: 1977-1987

Album Notes

Covering some of the output of ex-New York Doll, Heartbreaker, junkie, and rock & roll casualty Johnny Thunders in the 10 years after 1977's punk rock explosion, this best-of includes much of his best work with the Heartbreakers as well as solo material recorded in the late 1980s with his wife, Patti Paladin. In addition to well-known songs like "Chinese Rocks," "Born to Lose," and "London Boys," there are remarkable covers of Dion's "I Was Born to Cry" and the extrovert New Orleanian Roy Head's "Treat Her Right." As always with Thunders' material, the listener is left wondering whether his talent emerged because of his drug addiction or in spite of it.
