Dancing Backward in High Heels songs Product Information
Dancing Backward in High Heels album for sale by New York Dolls was released Apr 26, 2011 on the 429 label. On their third studio album since reuniting the New York Dolls in 2004, David Johansen and Syl Sylvain have finally begun acknowledging the obvious -- this is not the same band that traipsed in and burned out in a blaze of glory in the '70s. Not only are Johansen and Sylvain the only survivors from the band's original lineup, their efforts to re-create the band's original sound and impact have been well-meaning and entertaining without making much of an mark.2009's `Cause I Sez So found them drifting away from the classic sound of the Dolls, and 2011's Dancing Backward in High Heels in many respects represents a clean break; Steve Conte, who took on the Johnny Thunders role in the reunited band, is gone, and with Frank Infante of Blondie in his place, on these sessions the guitar plays a lesser role in the arrangements, with keyboards and sax dominating many of the tunes. And while this album doesn't entirely abandon the Dolls as we knew them, it recalls the original group's influences, rather than the Dolls themselves, most notably classic `60s rock, girl group sounds, and vintage R&B rather than the beautifully shambolic hard rock of their salad days. Dancing Backward in High Heels CD music contains a single disc with 7 songs. ...See Full Description

definitely not a bland release. different direction than ive ever heard from the dolls, sounds like it could have been made in the 60s 70s era of pop and funk with a rock foundation. very catchy! Thankyou Dolls for still doing records.
