So Alone (bonus track from Johnny thunders's Album '' So Alone " the reissue from 1992).

Following the drug-fueled implosion of the Heartbreakers, Johnny Thunders bounced back with his first solo outing, So Alone. Featuring a veritable who's who of '70s punk and hard rock - Chrissie Hynde, Phil Lynott, Peter Perrett, Steve Marriott, Paul Cook, and Steve Jones, among others - the record was a testament to what the former New York Dolls guitarist could accomplish with a little focus. Much like Thunders' best work with the Dolls and Heartbreakers, So Alone is a gloriously sloppy amalgam of R&B, doo wop, and three-chord rock & roll.

Johnny Thunders’s story is so steeped in doomed glamour and junkie mythology that somewhere along the line the man that was John Anthony Genzale has been lost in the telling, but to know one you have to know the other. Born in the middle-class Jackson Heights area of Queens on July 15, 1952, the boy who would be Thunders was irrevocably shaped in infancy by the departure of his father Emil Genzale. Especially when he had his drugs of choice, which unfortunately for him, and everyone who cared for him, involved heroin. At that point he probably consumed two grams a day. Thunders, now reunited with Nolan, invited Giercke to watch him play at the Peppermint Lounge. Classic Rock Newsletter.

Though Johnny Thunders was a mess while recording So Alone, it was his defining moment. The album sports the same four-chord junk and sass he brought to The New York Dolls and The Heartbreakers, and he lights it up on Leave Me Alone, Dead or Alive," and especially London Boys -a vicious Sex Pistols dis that, funnily enough, finds the Pistols’ Paul Cook and Steve Jones backing him. The Dolls retread Subway Train is surprisingly great, as is his toast to girl groups, "(Give Him A) Great Big Kiss.

Anyone know if the version of so along on this is the same one from the actress sessions with johnny single. Also, what's the 2nd version of criteics chance?
late reply but better than never, right? The So Alone i think is a earlier studio version or demo (haven't heard it on any other Album of Thunders personally). About Critic's Choice one is acoustic and one version is electrified.
