New York Rocks: Original Punk Classics of the 70's

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John D. Luerssen
While it would be difficult to get a complete picture of the New York punk scene with just one single disc, New York Rocks: Original Punk Classics of the 70's is actually fairly comprehensive. Originators of a sound that's still alive today via everyone from Luna to the Strokes, groups like the Velvet Underground and Television are represented with what is arguably their best-ever tracks -- the inventive, attitudinal "Rock & Roll" and the crackling, revved-up "See No Evil," respectively.
