SO ALONE (REMARQUABLE) Vinyl Record - Remastered, Special Edition
Limited double swirled yellow, red, and black colored vinyl LP pressing. The second vinyl LP contains bonus material including the unreleased title track, a cover of Marc Bolan’s ‘The Wizard’ and the non-album single tracks ‘Dead Or Alive’, the single edit of ‘You Can’t Put Your Arms Round A Memory’ and ‘Hurtin’’. Rounding off the package is a lavish 16-page booklet reproducing almost all the original promotional materials that accompanied the original release of the album in 1978, including two promotional posters. This is the third of four Remarquable Records vinyl releases in their Johnny Thunders: 1978 series, celebrating New York's iconoclastic rock 'n' roll vagabond. The cult guitar hero was a founding member of two highly influential groups: the fabulous New York Dolls and 'punk' pioneers The Heartbreakers. By 1978 Johnny had relocated to London, forging plans for a solo career which culminated in the release of his career-peak album So Alone. In 1984, Johnny himself acknowledged it was "the best record I ever made". Under the guiding hand of producer Steve Lillywhite and amidst an unrepeatable roll call of friends only too willing and able to help out, Johnny forged an album which has gone on to influence generations, spawning his most popular single 'You Can't Put Your Arms Round A Memory' which featured prominently in the award winning HBO TV series The Sopranos and Scorsese's film Bring Out The Dead. It's an unmissable all-time classic. This exclusive and unlikely-to-be-repeated Remarquable special edition of Johnny's So Alone album is timely, and rounds up the complete original So Alone album as well as non-album tracks released on singles and two key unissued outtakes.
