Ramones reissuing first 4 albums on 180-gram vinyl with bonus blue-vinyl 7-inches

 

Reissue specialists Rhino Records later this month will re-release the Ramones’ first four albums — Ramones (1976), Leave Home (1977), Rocket to Russia (1977) and Road to Ruin (1978) — on 180-gram audiophile vinyl and in special limited-edition sets packaged with bonus 7-inch singles on blue vinyl.

Due out July 19, the reissues “come in accurate representations of the original packaging,” according to Rhino’s announcement, and “were made using lacquers cut from the original analog masters by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering.”

The standard editions will be sold at retail with a suggested list price of $17.98. But Rhino.com will sell limited-edition versions of the albums, each packaged with a bonus reproduction 7-inch featuring a single and B-side from each album, pressed on blue vinyl. Those sets, priced at $24.98 each, are limited to 500 copies per album.

The new reissues also will include the restoration of the original tracklist for Leave Home, with “Carbona Not Glue” returning to its original slot at Track 5 of Side A. After the initial pressing, the song was removed to avoid a legal action by the Carbona company, and replaced by the B-side “Babysitter” and later with the single “Sheena is a Punk Rocker.”
