THE HEARTBREAKERS - CBGB'S N.Y.C 7th Sep 75 (Re-Post)
Here’s a re-up request, can’t believe it was 3 years ago when I first posted this. Maan! Time flies when yer having fun, or should that be fun flies when you’ve got no time. This is an early show from The Heartbreakers, when Richard Hell was on Bass and sharing vocal duties with Johnny Thunders, this became a bit of an issue within the band, when Hell wanted to do all the vocals he was ousted, no longer a Heartbreaker he was soon to become a Voidoid and Johnny was left to handle the vocal duties. The cover of this Camden Town tape is from the first Heartbreakers photo session in early 1975, by Sept when this was recorded Walter Lure had joined on second Guitar, and the bands publicity advised the punters to “Catch ’em while they were still alive” If you want a hit of something pure and uncut, here yer go. Enjoy!
