The Reign
Zippered Up Heart / I've Had Enough

Link to image of cover

This is the very first recording by Johnny Thunders. It was recorded in 1967 with his first band 'The Reign' and was lost until 2000. The Reign was just a bunch of kids from Johnny's neighborhood sweating out this raw music. Side B of this record is an unknown band performing 'I've Had Enough'. You really can't hear any of Johnny's trademark guitar sound on this tune as he must have just learned how to play. The cover photographs of a very young JT are great. I found it interesting to hear the first time but I won't play it much more.
