"Hurt Me is my favourite record of Johnny Thunders. Johnny and his acoustic guitar and nothing else, but his songs. It is the most intimate, sincere, naked, sad, and lovely album I know. Sad vacation, Hurt me, Diary of a lover, MIA,Eve of destruction, I'd rather be with the boys, are some of my favourites. If you like Johnny Thunders, you CAN'T MISS this album. It will be an experience between you and him. COSA VOSTRA!"

"Johnny Thunders wrote his share of rock songs. None of them appear, in rock form, on this album. And pehaps that is why it is this album, and none of the others, with the possible exception of "So Alone," that reveals Thunders to be a human being, and not some sort of pitiful, if fascinating, cliche. Without an amp, or hard drugs, to hide behind, Thunders is quiet and timid, almost. "You Can't Put Your Arms Around a Memory" has never sounded this sad, or hopeless, "Lonely Planet Boy" has never sounded so touching, and "Sad Vacation" has never sounded so terribly depressing. Not that this is a dirge of an album to listen to. "I'd Rather Be with the Boys" is quite a bit of fun (and actually *listenable*, unlike the version that appears on Gang War). The incomlete version of "Eve of Destruction" that is the second song on the disc, pretty much sums up Johnny Thunders' life in an minute and a half. He, the closest thing the world has ever had to the living, breathing incarnation of Rock'n'Roll, and the world itself, during the Cold War, were perpetually on the Eve of Destruction. A lonely place, indeed."

"**Get your hands on this one**
Even though it is out of print, do some hunting on the web and you should be able to track a copy of the CD or the LP eventually. Believe me it is worth the wait for sure. Thunders does a few covers on this album eg. Bob Dylan's "Joey", also he re-recorded a few of his old tracks from previous albums eg. "She's So Untouchable" and "Ask Me No Questions" from his debut solo album "So Alone". He even goes back and does a cover of a New York Dolls tune "Lonely Planet Boy" all and all it is a good balance of material. All of it acoustic, all having a slower sound, really brings out the sorrow and emotion that Thunders is spewing in the microphone. Anyway if your a fan of his work, and you haven't heard this album I suggest you pick it up as soon as possible.
ALso look for other Thunders albums such as: So Alone, Que Sera Sera, the NEW Too Much Junkie Business, In Cold Blood, and Copycats."
