Exact repro vinyl version of their second album, originally released by Sire in 1978; 180 gram vinyl. "The Dead Boys set their sights on their sophomore effort, which was originally to be produced by Lou Reed (with a working title of 'Down to Kill'). But at the insistence of their record company (who was trying to convince the band to soften up their sound a bit to produce a breakthrough hit), the group enlisted former Cream producer (and bassist for early-'70s Cream disciples Mountain) Felix Pappalardi. The match didn't prove to be a fitting one, as the former hippie didn't understand the sonic onslaught of these young punks, resulting in an album that failed to expand on the promise of their debut. With a new title of We Have Come for Your Children, the album spawned another punk classic in 'Ain't It Fun,' but the disc sold even fewer copies than its predecessor." --Greg Prato & Stephen Thomas Erlewine
