Ramones / Leave Home: four-disc 40th anniversary super deluxe edition

Rhino will issue a super deluxe edition of the Ramones 1977 album Leave Home next month, which, as with last year’s reissue of the band’s self-titled debut, will offer rare and unreleased content across three CDs and a vinyl LP.

The first CD in this new edition features two different mixes of the album, a remastered version of the original and a new 40th anniversary mix by original Leave Home album engineer/mixer Ed Stasium.

The second CD is packed with content (loads of alternative mixes) and features 30 previously unreleased tracks including Leave Home rough mixes for recorded at Sundragon studio in New York.

The final disc features an unreleased recording of the band’s concert at CBGB’s on 2 April, 1977. The show took place a few months after Leave Home was released and includes live performances of tracks from the album along with classics like Blitzkrieg Bop and Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue.

The vinyl LP included in this new edition features the 40th anniversary remix. In the sleeve notes that accompany this set, Ed Stasium explains why this has been created: “Generally, the consensus was [the original] maybe sounded too clean, the guitars panned completely left-right detracted from the band’s foreboding presence, and the reverb effects especially were a little excessive.”

Like the reissue of Ramones, this comes packaged in a 12″ x 12″ hardcover book. According to the label it’s a “limited and numbered edition of 15,000 copies worldwide”.

This Leave Home super deluxe edition will be released on 21 July. US fans should consider the UK pre-order price of £39. With VAT deducted it equates to around $43 + shipping, which is a saving of around $22 on the current US price.
