Four vinyl LP pressing. 49 total tracks, including previously unreleased recordings by Richard Lloyd, Alex Chilton, Feelies, Erasers and the first singles by Television and Richard Hell. Comes with a 120-page hard cover coffee table book featuring previously unpublished photos by revered NYC punk photographers David Godlis, Ebet Roberts and Roberta Bayley (Ramones). Also features a 37,000-word essay detailing birth of punk rock on 45, populated by iconic artists like Television, Alex Chilton, Lester Bangs, Richard Hell, the Feelies, Patti Smith, Talking Heads, Brian Eno, Blondie, and the Ramones. It all began with Terry Ork, a Jewish SoCal film nerd enthralled by Andy Warhol's posse as they made a transgressive surfing flick, who moved cross-country to manage a movie memorabilia shop on the grubby streets of the Lower East Side. Made in the shadows of disco and dereliction in late-'70s Manhattan, Ork Records: New York, New York is not just the genesis of punk, it is the birth of the New York City scene and indie culture as we know it.
