New York Dolls Box Set Filled With Rarities

New York Dolls

(Gibson) A new 5-CD boxed set that gathers rarities, live recordings, and demos from the New York Dolls has been announced for release next month. Personality Crisis: Live Recordings & Studio Demos 1972-1975 will hit U.K. stores on April 27, with pre-order available now for delivery to the U.S.

"It is commonly perceived that the essence of the New York Dolls was never satisfactorily captured by their two albums for the Mercury label, both of which many believe suffered from unsympathetic production," reads a press release. "Fortunately for us all, the band's untutored rawness, unencumbered strength of purpose and unique vision is better served by the recordings that are gathered together for the first time on Personality Crisis: Live Recordings & Studio Demos 1972-1975.

A trio of pre-Mercury demo sessions-arguably as close as the Dolls ever got to nailing their sound in the cold austerity of the recording studio-are joined by a collection of incendiary live shows (including two American radio broadcasts) that, despite the variable sound quality, capture their unfettered outrageousness and life-affirming vitality. This package serves, then, as an alternative view of one of the few genuinely essential rock 'n' roll bands to emerge from the early Seventies wastelands." Read more here.
