Additional Notes

This was also issued in many other countries: Australia, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Portugal. Some of these "foreign" pressings had different track listings. The Dolls' 'Who Are The Mystery Girls?' is actually from Too Much Too Soon, not the self-titled debut; 'Love Comes In Spurts' is a different version to the one that eventually appeared on Richard Hell's debut LP, which was actually issued as Blank Generation; and although not mentioned, both Dead Boys tracks are from Young Loud And Snotty, and the tunes from Patti Smith, Talking Heads and Little Bob Story were all A-Sides.
