New York Dolls – Live In NYC 1975 Red Patent Leather – Cassette
Live in NYC 1975: Red Patent Leather is a live album by the American punk rock band New York Dolls. This album was recorded during the band’s performance at the Little Hippodrome Club in New York City in 1975 and was released in 1984.
Red Patent Leather is a 1984 live album by the earlier disbanded New York Dolls. The show by the Glam rock group was recorded in New York a decade earlier, in March 1975, just a month before the group broke up while on tour in Florida.
The New York performance was recorded at the 2,000 capacity “Little Hippodrome” club. The shows were the last performed by the group in New York, and as such they made the small unusual venue famous. The venue itself closed later that same year.
The New York Dolls were known for their glam rock and proto-punk sound and are considered influential in the development of punk rock and glam metal. Live in NYC 1975: Red Patent Leather captures the band’s raw and energetic live performance during their prime.
The album likely includes live renditions of some of the band’s classic songs, showcasing their swagger, attitude, and irreverent style. Tracks such as “Personality Crisis” and “Looking for a Kiss” are likely to be part of the live setlist.
While the New York Dolls may not have achieved massive commercial success during their initial run, their influence on rock and punk music is widely recognized. Live in NYC 1975: Red Patent Leather is a piece of rock history that captures the essence of the band’s live performance and is cherished by fans of the band and those interested in the roots of punk rock.
