New York Dolls
Red Patent Leather

Link to image of cover

This is a live recording from a March 2nd, 1975 show at the Little hippodrome club NYC. The new red patent leather image was the work of, future Sex Pistols manager, Malcom McLaren. Sound quality is very poor and there is not much to recommend on this disc.
Johnny Thunders and Jerry Nolan left the band shortly after this gig. The remainder of the band played a few dates in Japan which resulted in a recording released under the name of Tokyo Dolls. Avoid this and pick up some of the earlier material.
