THE RAMONES Bonus Track Reissues 1976-1984


There’s not much to say about the Ramones. Their unrelenting riffs and monosyllabic utterings have earned credence via their purity and consistency, as the band stayed true to their basic school of rock all the way to the grave. True, there were plenty of second-rate albums along the way, but you couldn’t question the band’s sincerity. This is a collection of bonus track editions from 1976 to 1984. The first three should be in any collection. It’s Alive (its “greatest live album ever” reputation notwithstanding) is so righteous it didn’t even need any bonus tracks. Leave Home‘s new additions make up a 16-tune live show from The Roxy, August 12, 1976. Their co-producer’s list is something of a weird read; Phil Spector (End Of The Century), Graham Gouldman (Pleasant Dreams), Ed Stasium (Road To Ruin), Ritchie Cordell (Subterranean Jungle), Dave Stewart, Tony Bongiovi, Tommy Erdelyi and Craig Leon. That’s not even mentioning Bill Laswell (1989′s Brain Drain). Click the covers for links to Amazon, where most of these are going cheap.

    Thank you, Willard, for the Joey Ramone Christmas album. It’s strangely inspirational, as Joey Ramone is to many fans. I’m not a fan of Christmas albums, as a rule, but you’ve posted a winner here. I’m so glad you’re back, Willard. Your return to this blog was the best re-up there could be. Merry Christmas (us old folks still say that)–you run a merry little operation here, in a world that sure needs it. I guess Joey Ramone has gotten me all inspired tonight.
