From 1972 and their sole, eponymous album, please enjoy (if that's the word) New York Dolls wannabes Five Dollar Shoes and their plaintive ode to groupiedom, the imaginatively titled "Love Song."
These guys suck, obviously, but I can't help feeling somebody in Guns N' Roses had a copy of the LP version. I myself have been looking for a copy (it's never been on CD, for pretty obvious reasons) for ages, partly because I'd never heard it, but mostly because it came out on Neighborhood Records, and at the time I was sort of seeing a woman who worked at Neighborhood.
The punchline to all this needs to be understood in terms of the then vogue for rock stars running their own custom record labels. The Beatles, obviously, kicked all that off with Apple, and of course by 1972, the Rolling Stones had Rolling Stones records, the Beach Boys had Brother, Led Zeppelin had Swan Song, and even the fricking Youngbloods(!) had Raccoon. I'm sure I'm forgetting a few.
Anyway, so a trash-rock platform heels and spandex bunch like Five Dollar Shoes got signed to Neighborhood.
The custom label of...
...wait for it...
...hippie songstress Melanie.
I don't what's sillier -- the idea of Melanie signing these posers or the idea of the auteur behind "Brand New Chastity Belt" actually having her own record company.
