Johnny Thunders
Proud To Be Pirate

Link to image of cover

This is the same material as Thunders & The Heartbreakers, Mr. Johnny Thunders and It's Great When You're Straight.

This seems to be the second pressing of this material and had a run of 500 copies. It has a thin paper sleeve.

This is a bootleg 7 inch EP with 6 songs. The first 2 tracks are live with the All Stars (Living Dead Group with Peter Perret). Other tracks are Gang War demos that can be found on Gang War and Crime Of The Century. Track 6 is misnamed on both editions as 'Hear Things'. It is really 'Hey Thanks'. Sound quality is very poor, even for a Thunders bootleg, but the tunes are kinda fun.
