  • Too Much Too Soon is the second studio album by American hard rock band the New York Dolls, released on May 10, 1974, by Mercury Records. The band was dissatisfied with the sound of their 1973 self-titled debut album, so frontman David Johansen enlisted Shadow Morton to produce Too Much Too Soon. Morton had become disenchanted by the music industry, but was enthused by the band's energy and agreed to work with them as a personal challenge. They recorded the album at A&R Studios in New York City. Despite their affinity for him, the New York Dolls produced little original material with Morton and recorded several cover songs to complete Too Much Too Soon. Johansen impersonated different characters on some of the novelty covers, while Morton's refined production incorporated a large amount of studio sound effects and female backing vocals. For the album, lead guitarist Johnny Thunders wrote and recorded "Chatterbox", his first lead vocal track. Too Much Too Soon was released to poor sales and only charted at number 167 on the Billboard 200. After a problem-ridden national tour, the New York Dolls were dropped by Mercury and disbanded in 1975.
