Synopsis

Album Description
First time on CD for the 1979 debut solo album from former New York Dolls member Sylvain Sylvain, which reached #123 in the Billboard Pop Albums chart. Although lumped in with the burgeoning Rockabilly scene at the time, this album is closer to an homage to his ?50s Pop influences.

Another NY Doll with immense talent!

"How has this CD reissue gone 4 months without being reviewed?

I always suspected that Sylvain Sylvain was more worthy than he was given credit for. Of course, it's tough to work in the shadow of Thunders and Johansen. But when I first bought the vinyl version as a kid, my high expectations were met. Sylvain did a great job writing 50's and 60's era songs (something Johansen was only able to achieve with covers) without sounding dated. I'm So Sorry, 14th Street Beat, Deeper, Teenage News, What's That Got To Do With Rock & Roll - all winners. I'm buying this again."
