L.A.M.F. - The Found '77 Masters: Neon Pink & White Vinyl LPTRACKLP77A
Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Release Date: 2nd September
The only LAMF worth owning, an all-time top 10 punk record, rock n roll bottled, shaken and smashed.
A million bands tried to be The Heartbreakers, nobody ever did.
Neon pink and white vinyl, with ‘RSD Essentials’ obi-strip and inner bag notes on the band and tapes. Non-Returnable.
The in-demand new version, following the hugely over-subscribed RSD2021 LP.
Forty-fifth anniversary edition of the classic 1977 punk album, now heard as intended.
FOUND IN AN ATTIC – a copy master of the original 1977 Track Records tape, without 'mud'! This classic punk album, recorded in London by the band featuring New York Dolls Johnny Thunders and Jerry Nolan, was universally condemned in the music press for having a 'muddy mix' – later found to be a mastering fault. When Track went bust the following year, manager Leee Black Childers burgled the Track Records' Carnaby Street 3rd floor office and liberated the tapes that belonged to him and the band. He found everything – except for the master-tape, which remained undiscovered until last year. Other releases had been from outtakes or remixes.
It was released for RSD in 2021 with not enough copies, so now RSD Essentials USA* have selected it as their #25 ‘Essential Vinyl’ album, to satisfy the demand for this recently discovered acclaimed recording.
*RSD Essentials is a USA initiative that supplies RSD stores with essential vinyl throughout the year.
Clem Burke from Blondie: “L.A.M.F. is one of the most brilliant rock & roll records ever made.”
