Vinyl LP pressing. Too Much Too Soon is the second studio album by The New York Dolls. The group was dissatisfied with the recording of their 1973 self-titled debut album, leading the band’s frontman David Johansen to enlist veteran producer Shadow Morton for Too Much Too Soon. Morton had become disenchanted by the music industry, but felt motivated by the band’s energy and agreed to work with them as a challenge. They recorded the album in 1974 at A&R Studios in New York City. The New York Dolls formed in New York City in 1971. Along with the Velvet Underground and the Stooges, they were one of the first bands of the early punk rock scenes. Although their original line-up fell apart quickly, the band’s first two albums-New York Dolls (1973) and Too Much Too Soon (1974)-became among the most popular cult records in rock.
