Heartbreakers - L.A.M.F The Found '77 Masters
Double Hardback CD £16.99
2CD edition in hard-back 32p book with bonus disc of four demo sessions and more.
Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers' newly discovered 1977 LP’s master-tape!
The faulty 1977 LP was known as 'muddy' – the master was lost when Track went bust.
Previous issues were outtakes, remixes or ‘mud’ – but it’s now heard clearly at last! Audio sample and video explainer: https://youtu.be/m5hy61-4vAA More info: www.jungle-records.com
First issued as a much sought-after vinyl LP for RSD in July 2021, now this CD version comes together with a bonus CD - 'the L.A.M.F. demos, plus'; a 19-track collection of four demo sessions from 1976-77 and three tracks from singles. It’s packaged in a hardcover 32-page book, with notes by Simon Wright and a 2012 interview with Walter Lure (the last of the LAMF Heartbreakers who sadly passed away in 2020), together with rarely-seen photos.
Upon release in 1977, Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers’ L.A.M.F. had a mastering fault, widely condemned as a ‘muddy mix’. Track Records went bust and the master was lost – so subsequent releases were compiled from outtakes or re-mixes. Forty-four years later, the master has been found in the attic of producer Daniel Secunda, a crystal-clear 1977 ‘Copy Master'. Now L.A.M.F. can at last be heard as the band and producers intended!
9/10 REVIEW IN CLASSIC ROCK: ‘ Unholy grail completes six-decade sonic saga . Nobody in love with this definitive NYC classic should hesitate to splash out’
9/10 REVIEW IN VIVE LE ROCK : ‘This newly discovered ‘L.AM.F’ probably captures that barely controlled chaos better that most, with its clear and pure sound’
