ramonesvinyl First four Ramones albums to be reissued on vinyl

In the last half year or so, something in particular has surged an uptick in appreciation for The Ramones. From their lifetime achievement Grammy to the Shonen Knife tribute album, lately it seems everyone’s saying Gabba Gabba Hey to the seminal punk rockers. Now, Rhino Records are adding to the frenzy with plans to reissue the group’s first four LPs later this month on 180-gram audiophile vinyl (via SlicingUpEyeballs.com).

Dropping July 19th,  Ramones (1976), Leave Home (1977), Rocket to Russia (1977), and Road to Ruin (1978) will each be available for a cool $17.98. According to Rhino, the four releases “come in accurate representations of the original packaging” manufactured “using lacquers cut from the original analog masters by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering.” For fans willing to fork over $24.98, they’ll also receive a bonus reproduction 7” featuring that album’s B-side pressed on blue vinyl. Those bonus records, though, are limited to just 500 copies per album.

Leave Home will also have its original tracklist reinstated as “Carbona Not Glue” will once again be track five after it was replaced by the B-side “Babysitter” and eventually “Sheena is a Punk Rocker”. Check out the tracklist for each release below.
