Heartbreakers / L.A.M.F. – The Found ’77 Masters
(Vinyl LP – Jungle Records)
FOUND IN AN ATTIC – a punk rock archaeological discovery: a copy master of the original 1977 Track Records tape, without ‘mud’! This classic punk album, recorded in London by the New York band featuring two New York Dolls, was always controversial – and not just for the acronym. Upon release on Track Records in 1977, it was universally condemned in the music press for having a ‘muddy mix’ – later found to be a mastering fault.
Unexpectedly, in 2020 a chance meeting led Jungle to Daniel Secunda‘s archives. Danny was an old-school music biz pioneer who became a Track Records director – and the Heartbreakers ‘L.A.M.F.’ co-producer. In amongst his archives stored in his attic were numerous tape boxes, including 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.
