Johnny Thunders
In Cold Blood

This package contains studio and live material. The studio recordings sound more like demo material because they're not really fleshed out. But I like them because they have a funky groove that Johnny does quite well. Parts of the live album sound pretty sloppy but you have to like it because the band and audience are obviously having so much fun. The 'Louie Louie' and 'Gloria' on here really rock the house.
