The New York Dolls is the definitive proto-punk album, even more than anything the Stooges released.
All New York Dolls 3 Albums
Released: Jul 25, 2006
This CD captures the spirit of a band that had disappeared long before rock 'n' roll became about big business, and presents the essence of fun, revelatory rock 'n' roll in its purest form.
Released: May 10, 1974
"Too Much Too Soon" distinguishes itself from "New York Dolls" by featuring more of a '50s/'60s influence and by being funnier, and whilst it's not as good as their debut, it's definitely worth your time and money.
