"Looking For A Kiss" - The New York Dolls (demo, 1973)
When The New York Dolls signed their record deal in 1973, they got into the studio and recorded their entire repertoire in one-take demo cuts, in order to decide which songs to choose for their debut album. This original raw and clear studio recording (here from the compilation "A Hard Night`s Day", released in 2000), untouched by the hands of producers and even including chatter amongst the band members between the songs, captures the sound of The Dolls as it was meant to be heard: trashy, sloppy and sweaty rock`n`roll, as if it was taped in a crowded nightclub…
"…Everybody in tune? Are all you lovely young gentlemen in tune? You angels, you wonders of the universe?
When I say I’m in love, you best believe
I’m in love, L-U-V…”
