“Frenchette” (live) – David Johansen

One of the most underrated singer-songwriters of the late 1970s is David Johansen, former lead singer of the New York Dolls.  Here’s my favorite Johansen solo track, this time in a stelllar live version from the promotion-only “The David Johansen Group Live” album recorded at New York City’s Bottom Line club in 1978.  Whether with the Dolls, solo, or in his Buster Poindexter alter-ego persona (sadly, where Johansen found his biggest commercial success), the man knows how to put on a show.
