Glorious Results of a Misspent Youth

Greatly Appreciated

Glorious Results of a Misspent Youth  is the fourth studio album by Joan Jett and the third to feature her backing band The Blackhearts.  The album was released in 1984 and reissued in 1998 with seven bonus tracks.  The title of the album was taken from a line of dialogue in an episode of The Honeymooners.  (More from Wikipedia)

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts have released a total of 10 studio albums, including Unvarnished that was released in 2013.  Their debut album, I Love Rock ’n’ Roll was their most successful, reaching #2 on the Billboard album charts and spawning a #1 hit single, I Love Rock ’n’ Roll.  The title of their third album, Glorious Results of a Misspent Youth (one of my favorite album names ever), refers to her days in the Runaways and includes another version of “Cherry Bomb”.  I saw a lively concert by Joan Jett down here in Bay St. Louis not long after I came to the Coast, and she came through again earlier this year.
