"In the Flesh" is a posthumous live CD by legendary punk rock guitarist/singer/songwriter Johnny Thunders. It consists of the full live set featuring a reunion of Thunders with fellow ex-New York Dolls and Heartbreakers drummer Jerry Nolan and ex-Dolls bassist Arthur "Killer" Kane, recorded at the Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles, California on January 4, 1987. Given Thunders' notoriety for performing in a smacked-out or alcoholic haze, this more sober and professional Thunders performance led one reviewer to declare the CD to contain "an ample track selection, generally superb performances, and surprisingly good fidelity all in one package -- a Triple Crown rarely achieved in the world of J.T. live recordings."
It would be the last time Kane would ever play with Thunders and Nolan, as the two musicians would pass away within a year of each other (Kane died of leukemia a month after playing a formal New York Dolls show with surviving members David Johansen and Sylvain Sylvain). The show was also filmed with a single VHS video camera and would become a popular bootleg amongst Thunders' fans; the footage was officially released, with the consent of Thunders' and Kane's estates, in November 2004 as the DVD Thunders, Nolan and Kane: "You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory".

THIS IS BRILLIANT !!!!
JOHNNY WAS THE ONE AND ONLY, UNIQUE ... NO ONE CAN EVEN REMOTELY COPY HIS GUITAR LICKS OR STAGE ANTICS. THIS IS A SUPERB LIVE PERFORMANCE AND I BET ALL THE LATER SUNSET STRIP SLEAZE METAL STARS (NIKKI SIXX, IZZY STRADLIN ETC.) WERE THERE TO SEE THEIR MUSICAL AND FASHION IDOL.
THANX SO MUCH FOR SHARING THIS BRILLIANT GEM ...

IMO this concert must be one of Johnnys finest moments on cd captured Live...it´s kinda touching that Arthur "Killer" Kane is once again together whit his old partners in crime(friends),Thunders & Nolan.
This concert also shows how great Johnny and his friends where when the damned Heroin,Booze etc wasn´t fucking things up for them.
Thanks a lot for sharing.
Best Dan.
