‘L.A.M.F. – the definitive edition’
A 3 x 180g LP gatefold sleeve set with a 16-page 12" booklet.
Includes the original 1977 Track LP restored, with the infamous ‘mud’ removed.
Plus 13 early demo tracks, including previously unreleased tracks with Richard Hell,

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.
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.’.
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.
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 and recompile the
album in ’84 and ‘94.
This three-LP vinyl set features the original 1977 Track LP restored, with the infamous ‘mud’ removed.
Plus 13 early demo tracks, including previously unreleased tracks with Richard Hell, and 21 alternative mixes from the epic 1977 mixing sessions at five London studios.
It comes together with a comprehensive, 16-page 12” booklet with a detailed 1975-78 Heartbreakers timeline, guitarist Walter Lure’s memories of punk London in 1977 and an intro by Thunders’ biographer Nina Antonia.

Multiple items postage
If you are ordering multiple items, there will be automatic approximated reduction in postage costs – BUT make sure you order them together, not individually.

If you want an accurate calculation then first put ALL the items into your basket, then don't pay but click on the 'Request total from seller' button in the shopping basket. We'll then recalculate the costs for your combined items postage and send you an invoice. The postage may or may not calculate as less.
Delivery time excludes weekends and Bank Holidays, which may be different in the UK from elsewhere.
Packets to overseas destinations (particularly Italy, Russia, South America) often take longer than advertised due to local customs delays.
