PRETTY BOY FLOYD – Leather Boyz With Electric Toyz [Reissue +5] Out Of Print
As requested here’s the major label debut album from over-the-top Los Angeles glam quartet PRETTY BOY FLOYD: “Leather Boyz With Electric Toyz” in its Perris Records reissue including 5 bonus tracks. The label also ordered a new artwork for this release (I still prefer the original).
Songs such as “48 Hours”, “Rock And Roll Outlaws” and “Only The Young” really rock, and reminds one of Poison and early Motley Crue. There are also two nice slower paced songs called “Wild Angels” and “I Wanna Be With You”.
This cult classic 80s US glam album reissue features five bonus tracks, including the original Japan Edition bonus track, very cool “Slam Dunk”. This is one of the very first Perris Records releases, and the and the new artwork ordered is quite poor. The original cover was much better, and ‘very ’80s’.
However what matters is the music, and we have here bonus tracks and a much better output than the old CD version.
Btw, this reissue is out of print, with used copied being sold for over $60.
Pretty Boy Floyd sounded good and looked outrageous, a combination that created a huge buzz in their early years. I feel they should’ve had more recognition, and give Leather Boyz With Electric Toyz two thumbs up!
