Ramones - S/T 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition 3xCD&LP
Deluxe edition includes three CDs plus a 180gm vinyl LP pressing of the mono mix of the album. Disc one includes original album remastered plus a brand new mono mix of the album. Disc Two contains 18 single mixes, outtakes, and demos (eight of which are previously unreleased). Disc Three includes both sets recorded at the Roxy on August 12, 1976. 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of Ramones, recently named the Greatest Punk Album Of All Time by Rolling Stone, and certainly one of the most important and influential albums of all time. This masterpiece helped launch the punk rock scenes in both America and Britain, and went on to inspire countless other artists for generations to come. This deluxe edition includes a sonically superior remastered stereo version and a meticulously recreated mono mix of the original album, plus rarities, unheard demos, and an unreleased live show - all produced, mixed, and mastered by the album's original producer and mixer Craig Leon. In addition to the music, the set also features extensive production notes about the recording of the original album by Leon, an essay looking back on the band's early days by rock journalist Mitchell Cohen, along with additional pictures taken by Roberta Bayley, whose iconic photo of the band graces the album's cover.
