Dancing Backward in High Heels is the third album from The New York Dolls ver. 2,0 and it's a throwback to the yesteryear of Shangri-La/ The Coasters style of rock n' roll. The lush production and smokey vocals of David Johansen takes us back to the days of R &B rock. The New York Dolls were heavily influenced by the Shangri-Las, Bo Diddly and The Coasters and this album is a tribute of sorts to them. Newer fans of the group and those of the uninitiated might scratch their heads and wonder about this album. But old fans will enjoy this latest offering. Producer Jason Hill plays Bass and former Blondie guitarist Frank Infante replace Sami Yaffa and Steve Conte (due to other commitments and were unable to tour or record with the band).
My favorite tracks "Fool For You Baby", I Sold My heart To The Junkman", End Of Summer" and the remake of an old Dolls' song "Funky But Chic". If you're a fan of the band or if you enjoy 60's pop rock then you'll want to pick up a copy.
