With all the alternative rock water that's passed under the bridge, it's hard to articulate the impact the New York Dolls' incendiary early performances had on subsequent rock & roll. The Stooges apart (and they were a different kind of garage band entirely, in content as much as style), there simply hadn't been anything quite as confrontational, cocky, and in-your-face prior to the Dolls. A HARD NIGHT'S DAY collects all but two of the songs they recorded (in a single one-night session) as demos for Mercury Records, prior to enlisting Todd Rundgren to produce their official debut album. It?s necessarily rawer than that effort (although Rundgren, to his credit, didn?t really slick them up much), but it?s a pretty representative document of what the Dolls sounded like live on a good night at their Mercer Arts Center stomping grounds.
Professional Reviews
CMJ (9/18/00, p.24) - "...Astounding....the collection's moments of primal perfection are so lofty and frequent, they simply have to be heard to be believed....goosebump-inducing..."
Mojo (Publisher) (11/00, p.118) - "...This is where it all started....experience the distilled spirit of rock'n'roll."
