New York Dolls - Max's, NYC 7-04-76 [with Mick Ronson]

After Thunders and Nolan left the New York Dolls in 1975 Johansen and Sylvain regrouped with new members and kept the band going for another two years. They never released any records but there area few live recordings to help tell the story. Here is a part of one that has Mick Ronson playing guitar with them. Besides Sylvain, Johansen and Ronson, Peter Jordan plays bass, Tony Machine is on drums, and Bobby Blaine plays keyboards. This one is recorded from the audience and is a little raw but is still a fun listen.

02 Pills (Diddley)
03 Boys' High Mambo (traditional high school chant/taunt)
