Johnny Thunders
Add Water And Stir

Link to image of cover

This is a very nice double CD that was recorded live in Japan, 1991, with The Oddballs. The first disk has the full band and is the more rocky 'electric album'. The second disk is the more laid back 'acoustic album' that has Johnny playing with Jamey Heath on sax and Steve Klasson on acoustic guitar. As some of the final work done by Thunders, it shows him in control and on the mark. I really like the 'Louie Louie / Hang On Sloopy' done here with the tight band. This package comes with a nice booklet and lots of photos.

This same material, and more of the same tour, was released on a Japanese three CD series as Saddest Vacation Act1, Saddest Vacation Act2 and Hurt Me More.
