Live It Up (Explicit)

Live It Up by David Johansen
Released: Jun 1982
Label: Sbcmg
David Johansen's astonishing baritone voice is so well suited to the Animals medley that opens this 1982 live set (his first album as a post-Dolls solo artist), it's easy to think he wrote "We Gotta Get Out of This Place/Don't Bring Me Down/It's My Life" himself. He simply owns the material. Even though the band behind him is decidedly more subdued than Johnny Thunders and Co., there is still plenty of New York sleaze to go around; things are just better lit. "Build Me Up Buttercup" is another major highlight and, of course, "Stranded in the Jungle" rules.
