Part of the New-York
underground 70's music scene, the first Laughing Dogs recordings can be
found on the famous 1976 "Live at CBGB's" compilation (cd re-released).
Their melodious music and
harmonious power pop attracted attention from the Columbia record company.
Their sound, yet very

should has granted them with worldwide hits. None of the members were new to
the music scene, so each brought plenty of creative ideas and strong
The title of the second and
final LP album was based on the fact that it would be the last Columbia
album - you "meet your maker" when you die. Here the Dogs are meeting their
"makers" (their mothers). "Our mothers sometimes came to gigs.
They were proud of
us. We were American boys from Brooklyn." - Jimmi.
The LP was produced by Bruce
Botnick who also produced the same year the legendary Paul Collins' Beat
The album has never been re-issued to this day on CD.
I did a transfer from my LP to cd-r in 2003 (with SoundForge 6.0), and i revamped the original
sleeve in order to get the pictures you can see
