The Dictators - Demos & Rare Tracks '73-'76 (1977)

Here's a classic Dictators bootleg to get you through the day! Don't forget to pick up the rarities compilation "Every Day Is Saturday" - came out on Norton Records in January this year, quite possibly one of the finest collections of rarities ever released!
"The Dictators are a rock and roll band formed in New York City in 1973. Critic John Dougan said that they were "one of the finest and most influential proto-punk bands to walk the earth." The Dictators' debut album, The Dictators Go Girl Crazy! (1975) was perhaps the first album released by a New York punk group. The Dictators are represented in the "Punk Wing" of the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, in Cleveland, Ohio. Steven Van Zandt called them "The connective tissue between the eras of The MC5, Stooges, NY Dolls, and the punk explosion of the mid to late 1970's".
