Summary

Too Much Too Soon, the second studio album by the legendary New York Dolls was first released in the spring of 1974. The record was laid down in New York with producer Shadow Morton. Morton, known for his work with the Shangri-Las, was brought in to the project by David Johansen despite (or perhaps because) Johnny Thunders wanted to produce the album. Though their self-titled debut with Todd Rundgren at the helm had received high praise from critics, the Dolls didn't like Rundgren. And Rundgren had little respect for the Dolls. Thunders and Johansen thought Rundgren's production watered down their sound. Rundgren was no fan of the group's raucous sound and attitude, to the point that he's even alleged to have yelled at them "get the glitter out of your asses and play!"

With Morton behind the boards Too Much Too Soon incorporated many of his trademark production technics familiar to Shangri-Las fans, mainly his use of sounds effects such as gunshots and highly present female backing vocals. Too Much Too Soon was well received by critics and fans who praised the band's raw sound and felt that it was improved by Morton's production.

The album features many cover songs including fantastic versions of the Cadets' 1956 hit single "Stranded in the Jungle", Archie Bell's "There's Gonna Be a Showdown", and Sonny Boy Williamson's "Don't Start Me Talkin'". Robert Christgau commented that Too Much Too Soon featured more covers than the Dolls debut as, "like so many cocky songwriters, David Johansen overloaded his debut with originals and then found that record promotion wasn't a life activity that inspired new ones."

Over the years the New York Dolls legacy has only grown larger. Get On Down now presents this legendary dangerous, fun, soulful and unique piece of Rock & Roll history on hot pink vinyl.
