No matter what anybody says, I think Todd was the best producer at that time to produce the New York Dolls. And he gave us a fabulous first album. If you compare the first album to the second album, it’s like day and night. That second album is like the first Buster Poindexter album. When you got black girls singing, you got a horn section, you got a piano player that can really play instead of Sylvain Sylvain—that’s not the New York Dolls! That could be any schmuck! Then you got Johansen singing, so as far as I’m concerned, it was the first Buster Poindexter album! — Sylvain Sylvain in Guitar World Magazine, 2008
