From Pumps To Pompadour
The David Johansen Story

Link to image of cover

Since this is the David Johansen story there's not too much of Johnny on this disc. But our favourite guitar player does appear on the first 3 tracks. 'Trash' and 'Personality Crisis' are taken from the Dolls first album while 'Babylon' comes off the second album.

Johansen has gone through some major changes in his on-stage persona and this compilation gives a sampling from each period. The disc comes with a very good booklet which plenty of photos.
