This is a warehouse find. The covers are all slightly scuffed.

This is the New York we all love. Angel Corpus Christi is in on the cool on this brilliant 8 song snapshot that mixes sass with minimalism. Winner.

Originally released in 1985. Eight cuts, all covers beloved New Yorkers such as Lou Reed, Richard Hell, Suicide, The Ramones, Patti Smith, The Velvet Underground, etc., all performed by Angel Corpus Christi. This is her very own vision of these classic tracks, naked and minimalist, sometimes naive, emphasizing the sweeter side of these compositions. With very simple instrumentation and the unusual sound of the accordion, Angel re-creates songs everybody loves into new and captivating dimensions. Suicide’s Alan Vega himself duets on two of the songs.

Warehouse find.
