The Hollywood Stars – Sound City
The 1976 lost album from The Hollywood Stars, found and available for the first time on vinyl
Originally recorded in 1976, ‘Sound City’ was thought to have been lost and is now available on vinyl for the first time.
The Hollywood Stars were originally put together by impresario and Hollywood figure Kim Fowley in 1973 (much as he did with The Runaways) and he, always an attention seeker and an attention grabber, crammed their gigs at the Whiskey A-Go-Go full of influential people, together with the coolest and most colourful Sunset Strip characters. He wanted to create a West Coast version of New York Dolls, minus the cross-dressing, and they had the sound people wanted in LA’s feel-good, glitzy rock ‘n’ roll landscape.
When touring, groups like Journey, The Knack, Van Halen and The Runaways all opened for The Hollywood Stars.
