Into the valley of the dolls Into the valley of the dolls As into the valley of the dolls.
The best Generation X album, it is essentially a greatest hits record. Tons of great tunes on it and really captures Billy Idol right before he was really going to step into the role as we know him now. Can't say enough good things about this album if your a fan of Punk or Idol, it is a must have for your collection. One person found this helpful. Valley of the Dolls- complete with female backing vocals on chorus, is a gem of a recording, worthy of the title track. Included on this re-release is the incredible B-Side from the title track's single, a Johnny Kidd and the Pirates cover, Shakin' All Over. Acquiring this track used to mean tracking down a rare 7" pressing. The price of the CD is worth it for this song alone. The other single off this album was the track, King Rocker- timely when released, tribute to the recently deceased Elvis.
Recorded at Wessex Studios. The tracks 'The Prime Of Kenny Silvers (Part One)' and 'The Prime Of Kenny Silvers (Part Two)' are displayed as 'The Prime Of Kenny Silvers (Parts One and Two)' on the back cover.
But ridicule should not be so readily heaped on former employers, Generation X. Never in the same league as the Clash or the Pistols, the group nevertheless kicked up a fair amount of dust and recorded some memorable singles and a classy debut album. They were, after all, the first of the punk bands to truly embrace the rock industry and all its trappings. But on this, their second album, the band's limitations are self-evident
