Records:
Brakes On You b/w Bombs Away
Blue Door Records (BD7705) – 1977
Live at the Club (Cambridge, MA)
Lorry Doll, vocals, guitar; Jeff Rey, guitar;
Kidd Kross, bass; Wild Johnny Lewis, drums

Jeff Rey's Notes: Saturday night at the Club in May of 1977. The Atlantics were paying us a decent sum to open for them so we arranged for a mobile recording unit to come in. The place was jam packed. Yet at the end of the night the Atlantics’ manager still tried to lower our cut. I didn’t blame the guys in the band – it was just business. Those who knew our drummer at the time know he had his personality flaws (to put it mildly), but he was a persuasive negotiator and we got what was promised. We recorded a whole set, but pressed these two songs because they sounded the hottest.







Brakes On You!
5-song Limited Edition CD
Blue Door/2-Tough (T200212) - 2002
Live at the Club (Cambridge, MA)
Lorry Doll, vocals, guitar; Jeff Rey, guitar;
Kidd Kross, bass; Wild Johnny Lewis, drums


Notes: Limited edition CD to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the 1977 "Brakes On You" release. Remixed, unedited versions of the title track and the single's B side, "Bombs Away," plus "Hotel Room," "Gang War Rumble" and "Yes I Do"
- all from the same live show at the Club in Cambridge. An eerie recreation of what Tracks really sounded like on a hot night.
Go here for details.



Bootlegs:
"Brakes On You" appears on the infamous bootleg compil-
ation Killed By Death #666. "Bombs Away" is on
Hyped2Death #12 which is part of a great series of very
well-done CDs of hard to get cuts. Check out the website
at
http://www.hyped2death.com/ for some real interesting
stuff. Or you can acquire the original 45 (at collector
prices) on eBay or elsewhere.






Selected other recordings:
Never Again / Lovin' Kiss
Unreleased studio recording  - 1978
Lorry Doll, vocals, guitar; Jeff Rey, guitar;
John Shriver, bass; Pat O’Neill, drums

Notes: Pat O'Neill, who was in between touring with
Aerosmith, set up
this session at their studio. This was
to be the first couple of songs for the Tracks album,
but we moved to NYC before it went any further.
"Never Again" is a power ballad (sort of) that pre-dated
MTV's Unplugged by almost twenty years.





Live At Arlington (MA) High School
January 20, 1979 – Final Tracks show
Lorry Doll, vocals, guitar; Jeff Rey, guitar;
John Shriver, bass; Bryan Brat, drums

Notes: Lorry and I came back to Boston for one final Tracks
gig that was set up by our 17 year old drummer Bryan before
we had split to New York. A set of raucous and raunchy tunes
that teeter on the verge of chaos throughout. A typical Tracks'
set that really captures the essence of the band. Lots of
between song banter from Lorry inciting the
high school kids.
