Ramones / 40th Anniversary Deluxe

Ramones / 40th anniversary deluxe edition

Warners/Rhino will mark the recent 40th anniversary of the Ramones 1976 self-titled debut with a four-disc deluxe edition, due in July.

The “Greatest Punk Album Of All Time” (to use the words of Rolling Stone) is brief – it only runs for 29 minutes – but its impact was enormous both in terms of the early punk scene on both sides of the Atlantic and in subsequent decades for countless other artists.

This new deluxe edition features on disc one, the stereo mix and a previously unreleased mono mix of the album, newly remastered by original album producer Craig Leon, who recalls, “We had an idea to record at Abbey Road and do both a mono and stereo version of the album, which was unheard of at the time. I’m thrilled that now, 40 years later, we followed through on that original idea.”

The anniversary edition’s second disc spotlights single mixes, outtakes, and demos. Of the 18 tracks selected, eight of them have never been released, including demos for I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend, 53rd and 3rd, and Loudmouth.

The third and final CD captures the band performing two full sets live at The Roxy in West Hollywood on August 12, 1976,  with the evening’s second set making its debut here. The set is completed by the unheard mono mix pressed onto a vinyl LP.

This set comes packaged in a 12″ x 12″ hardcover book which features production notes about the recording of the album by producer Craig Leon, an essay looking back on the Ramones’ early days by journalist Mitchell Cohen, along with additional pictures taken by Roberta Bayley, who took the iconic album cover photo. With a nod to the year of release, this Ramones deluxe is a ‘limited edition’ of 19,760 individually numbered copies.

Ramones: 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition will be released on 29 July 2016. As you will see below, Amazon UK has priced this very competitively. With the helpful VAT deduction, US fans can buy from Amazon UK for about $44 + shipping.
