The New York Dolls were many things to many people but in their two 70's albums they released enough great material for numerous compilations, reconfigurations, reissues, and live albums. While their recent album didn't make as much of splash, entire careers and musical movements were founded on their initial sounds. Mere mention of the name "New York Dolls" evokes thoughts of lipstick, frilly scarves, tight leather pants that reveal it all, hairspray, and makeup. While it wouldn't be so out of place today, back then they were an oddity.
Thanks to rummaging through the vinyl of my dear friends, the Jones sisters, what we have here is one of the compilations, packed with great songs.
One of the songs, "Give Her A Great Big Kiss" not appearing anywhere else.
No, these songs aren't rare, per se, save for "Give...", but it never made it to CD and, well...as with all vinyl, it is therefore rare.
