BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Johnny Thunders’ career-peak album ‘SO ALONE’ which Johnny years later acknowledged was “the best record I ever made”. It spawned his most popular single ‘YOU CAN’T PUT YOUR ARMS ROUND A MEMORY’ which featured prominently in the award winning HBO TV series ‘The Sopranos’ and Scorsese’s film ‘BRING OUT THE DEAD’. It’s an unmissable all-time classic.

This EXCLUSIVE European release serves as an unlikely-to-be-repeated 40th Anniversary Remarquable Special Edition of Johnny’s ‘SO ALONE’ album, and a second disc containing for the first time on vinyl non-album tracks – the unreleased title track SO ALONE; a cover of Marc (T. Rex) Bolan’s ‘THE WIZARD’ which Johnny had recorded as a single b-side AND two non-album single tracks: DEAD OR ALIVE (Johnny’s debut solo single a-side); and for the first time in any format since its original release, the single edit of YOU CAN’T PUT YOUR ARMS ROUND A MEMORY; plus its b-side HURTIN’

Rounding off the package is a lavish 16-page booklet reproducing almost all the original promotional materials that accompanied the original release of the album in 1978, including two promotional posters. This remarquable package booklet will not be available again.

The first two releases in this series sold out… don’t miss this unique release. There is an extra special edition on splattered coloured vinyl using the art sleeve colours (yellow, red and black).

It’s essential, it’s limited, it’s Johnny Thunders at the peak of his powers. It’s simply REMARQUABLE 20th Century rock’n’roll! Bumrush the scalpers and buy your copies NOW!!
