"This gets two stars because it's Johnny and the boys, but getting two just for showing up is not enough. Horribly recorded with a mix by Helen Keller and with a slipcase designed by a hater of CDs, the contents of this abomination--regardless of the fine liner notes--are repulsive and are puzzling, as in, Why was this released? For the true studio Heartbreakers please consider the Lost Mixes, for the live experience there are DTK and the Max's records. P as well as U....."

"Long live the spirit of the late Johnny Thunders,1952-1991.Didn't realize he's been gone that long,nor was I aware that he had SO much material available.'Vive...' is a fourteen track live archive CD that was recorded in Paris on December 8,1977.Sound isn't perfect,but acceptable.Didn't notice any New York Dolls tunes on here.Cuts I liked the best were "Let Go","Too Much Junkie Business","London Boys" and the tune he apparently co-wrote with Richard Hell and Dee Dee Ramone,"Chinese Rocks"(good guitar riffs).Also,there are six out-takes tagged on.Decent proto-punk to be fully experienced.Check it out."
