Editorial Reviews

L.A. Confidential contains a treasure trove of unreleased outtakes from the sessions that were initially recorded in 1979 and 1980 by Bomp mastermind Greg Shaw. After the initial break up of the Dead Boys, nihilistic frontman extraordinaire Stiv Bators recorded material for Disconnected and several singles for Bomp. The music took a decidedly different approach, bypassing punk chutzpuh like ''Caught With the Meat in Your Mouth'' for '60s-derived garage pop abandon. Upon release, Dead Boys fans were less than enthused. Even so, this material stands on its own and continues to be rediscovered by a new audience much like Iggy's post-Stooges discs The Idiot and Lust for Life. The 18 tracks are all remastered from the original tapes, including alternate mixes of ''The Last Year,'' ''It's Cold Outside,'' ''Not That Way Anymore,'' ''Circumstantial Evidence,'' ''I'll Be Alright,'' a demo version of ''I'll Stand Accused,'' a rehearsal of the Damned's ''Neat, Neat, Neat,'' and ''Morrison Rant'' (recorded live at the Ritz in 1980), which is pure throwaway fun.

Format: Audio CD
First issued in 1994 as "L.A. L.A." (with a slightly different configuration), this CD collects a number of sides that find the ex-Dead Boy (and at the time of these recordings, future-Lord of the New Church) pulling mid-60s garage rock into the late-70s punk era. Included are some of his early solo work, including a speedy, guitar-rich cover of The Choir's classic "It's Cold Outside," and the pop-punk guitar originals "Not That Way Anymore" and "The Last Year." British Invasion influences are rife in chiming Rickenbackers and the full-kit Moon-like drumming of "Circumstantial Evidence."

The track list bookends Bators' 1980 solo album, "Disconnected," with later waxings that include a punky cover of Richard Berry's (by way of The Sonics') "Have Love, Will Travel" and an unusually modernized take on The Moody Blues' "Story in Your Eyes." Also included is a ragged jam on "Louie, Louie," retitled "LA, L.A.," and featuring The Runaways on backing vocals. Bators' humor and stage presence is revealed on a live song introduction appropriately entitled "Morrison Rant." The album closes with a rehearsal take of Bators and Brian James jamming to The Damned's "Neat Neat Neat."

This isn't as cohesive an album as "Disconnected," but it winningly fleshes out Bators' pop period between The Dead Boys and The Lords of the New Church.

Format: MP3 Music
This is the best work of Stiv's career. Everything he did from Rocket From the Tombs to The Dead Boys to Lords of the New Church, was amazing. This ABSOLUTELY highlights his brilliance and flexibility as a vocalist. I can't stop listening to this lately and missing the old days when musicians had staying power and integrity. I am tired of the recycled BS being pushed as something new in today's music. It lacks creativity and the music industry seems to fall prey to record (excuse me...CD or MP3) sales.

Where is Stiv Bators when the music world needs him most?! We have Cheetah, but........a little slice of Stiv would fix me right up. Buy this CD or MP3 and listen to the hell out of it!!!!!!!! We miss you Stiv!!!!
