New York Dolls • "Trash" b/w "Trash (live)"

Not the original recording from their debut album, the New York Dolls cut a new reggae-fied version for their latest LP, 'Cause I Sez So (on Atco/Rhino). The A-side is that LP cut, produced by Todd Rundgren, the B a live version recorded for Sirius XM in May of this year. The good news... it comes in a nice card, glued sleeve. The bad? The live version is a real poor recording. The arrangement's fine: they start the song the way it originally went, and then somewhere in the middle they transmogrify it into the reggae version from the current record. But man, whoever recorded this must've used a Realistic cassette deck or something. It's that bad.
2/5
