Rhino Records continues its series of expanded deluxe-edition reissues of the Ramones’ catalog with the arrival this fall of a 3CD/1LP edition of the punk pioneers’ fourth album, Road to Ruin, that will include two different mixes of the record, unreleased rough mixes and a full live concert. Full tracklist here.
Ramones fans who never got around to picking up the band’s key early albums on CD will have an easy way to do that later this month when Rhino Records releases a new box set collecting the band’s first six records, including Ramones, Leave Home, Rocket to Russia and Road to Ruin.
This week’s new releases include Ramones reissues on 180-gram audiophile vinyl, plus a 2CD reissue of Peter Murphy’s debut ‘Should the World Fail to Fall Apart,’ a brand-new They Might Be Giants album called ‘Join Us’ and a DVD of Lou Reed’s 2009 appearance at Lollapalooza.
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.
