HEARTBREAKERS 'L.A.M.F. - definitive edition' BOX SET



A 4-CD clam-shell box set with a 44-page booklet and 4 badges.

Includes CD1 'the lost '77 mixes'; CD2 the original 1977 Track LP restored, with the infamous 'mud' removed; CD3 13 early demo tracks, including previously unreleased tracks with Richard Hell, and CD4 21 alternative mixes from the epic 1977 mixing sessions at five London studios.



The Heartbreakers (Johnny Thunders, Walter Lure, Billy Rath & Jerry Nolan) were at the centre of the London punk scene in 1977, having been invited by the Sex Pistols onto the infamous 'Anarchy Tour'. UK punks treated the US band as rock royalty because of their New York Dolls pedigree. Malcolm McLaren had briefly managed the Dolls in NY.



Signing to The Who's label, Track Records, they were treated to the best recording studios in London to record their only album, 'L.A.M.F.'. But when the LP came out, there was universal criticism of the sound quality. Journalists who'd been championing the band such as Jon Savage, Julie Burchill, Nick Kent, Tony Parsons et al criticised the 'muddy mix', and drummer Jerry Nolan left the band because of it.



Both Track and the Heartbreakers ran out of money and collapsed when the album didn't sell to expectations. Manager Leee Black Childers broke into the bankrupt Track offices to retrieve the multitracks and mixes (though not the master), leading to efforts to remix the album in 1984 and eventually to recompile it in 1994, after both Johnny and Jerry had died.



This 'definitive edition' 4xCD box set at last restores the original LP, uncovers three early demo sessions from 1976 & 77, and presents a wide selection of the 200 mixes made at five different studios. A 44-page booklet with recollections from guitarist Walter Lure, a detailed Heartbreakers timeline 1975-78, and an introduction by biographer Nina Antonia accompanies it, along with four punk pin-badges.
