The Heartbreakers – L.A.M.F. – The Found ’77 Masters RSD Essential 025, Neon Pink & White Vinyl

A recently-found copy master of the original 1977 Track Records tape, without mud!

This classic punk album, recorded in London by the NYC band featuring two New York Dolls, was always controversial – and not just for the acronym. On release in 1977 on Track Records, it was widely condemned in the press for having a ‘muddy mix’ – later discovered to be a mastering fault. When Track went bust the following year, manager Lee Black Childers burgled the office and liberated the tapes – he found everything except the master-tape.

In 2020 a chance meeting led to Danny Secunda’s archives. Danny was an old-school music biz pioneer who understood punk. He became a Track Records director and the Heartbreakers ‘L.A.M.F.’ co-producer. Among his tape box archives were two with no artist name, marked ‘Copy Master 12.7.77’. They turned out to be a crystal-clear ‘L.A.M.F.’, just as the band and producers intended it.

First released as a much in-demand RSD release in 2021, it now returns for its 45th Anniversary as a ‘Record Store Day Essentials’ release.
