Album of the Day
Road To Ruin (40th Anniversary Remastered)
For the Ramones' ROAD TO RUIN, Dee Dee, Joey, and Johnny were joined for the first time by drummer Marky Ramone, as founding member Tommy Ramone moved to the producer's chair. More accessible than ever without sacrificing the quartet's blitzkrieg power, the 1978 Sire set introduced a nation of pinheads to such classics as “I Wanna Be Sedated." In honor of its 40th anniversary, Rhino has just released a 3-CD/1-LP boxed set of the seminal collection including two different mixes of the album, unissued rough mixes for every album track and an unreleased 1979 concert recording of the Ramones in New York – all packaged in a beautiful 12 x 12 hardcover book. To mark what would have been Johnny Ramone's 70th birthday, we'll crank up the ROAD TO RUIN: 40th ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION.
