HEARTBREAKERS - One Track Mind EP 1977

After a long working day, now a classic and certainly no strangers for the most of you. "The Heartbreakers are an influential 1970s New York punk act formed by Johnny Thunders (guitar/vocals and principal songwriter) and Jerry Nolan (drums) after they quit the New York Dolls, along with Richard Hell (vocals/bass) who had just left Television. Several months after intially forming the band, the trio added rhythm guitarist Walter Lure (vocals/guitar). The band quickly became one of the most popular and well-known underground bands in New York City, headlining shows at CBGB, Mother's (located across from the Chelsea Hotel), and Max's Kansas City." This three song EP came out via Track Record and was taken from their only studio album L.A.M.F. and kickin' very well, including a live piece and a famous cover version of an oldie. I like it, and it's good to hear the old stuff again.
