This is the third of four Remarquable Records vinyl releases in the Johnny Thunders: 1978 series, celebrating New York’s iconoclastic rock’n’roll vagabond Johnny Thunders !The cult guitar hero was a founding member of two highly influential groups: the fabulous New york Dolls and ‘punk’ pioneers The heartbreakers. By 1978 Johnny had relocated to London, forging plans for a solo career which culminated in the release of his career-peak album ‘So alone’. In 1984 Johnny himself acknowledged it was “the best record I ever made”. Under the guiding hand of producer Steve Lillywhite and amidst an unrepeatable roll call of friends only too willing and able to help out, Johnny forged an album which has gone on to influence generations, spawning 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. In the wake of Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger’s highly anticipated new HBO Television series VINYL – whose initial episode features Johnny’s music – this Exclusive and unlikely-to-be-repeated Remarquable Special Edition of Johnny’s ‘So alone’ album is timely, and rounds up the complete original ‘So Alone’ album as well as non-album tracks released on singles and two key unissued outtakes.
