2CD edition in hard-back 32p book with bonus disc of four demo sessions and more.

The faulty 1977 LP was known as ‘muddy’ – the master was lost when Track went bust.
Previous issues were out-takes, remixes or ‘mud’ – but it’s now heard clearly at last!

First issued as a much sought-after vinyl LP for RSD in July 2021, now this CD version comes together with a bonus CD – ‘the L.A.M.F. demos, plus’; a 19-track collection of four demo sessions from 1976-77 and three tracks from singles. It’s packaged in a hard-cover 32-page book, with notes by Simon Wright and a 2012 interview with Walter Lure (the last of the LAMF Heartbreakers who sadly passed away in 2020), together with rarely-seen photos.

Upon release in 1977, Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers’ L.A.M.F. had a mastering fault, widely condemned as a ‘muddy mix’. Track Records went bust and the master was lost – so subsequent releases were compiled from out-takes or re-mixes. Forty-four years later, the master has been found in the attic of producer Daniel Secunda, a crystal-clear 1977 ‘Copy Master’. Now L.A.M.F. can at last be heard as the band and producers intended!
