Listen to the exclusive premiere of the 40th Anniversary Mono Mix of RAMONES, painstakingly recreated by the album’s original producer, Craig Leon.
“The earliest mixes of the album were virtually mono,” says Leon. “We had an idea to record at Abbey Road and do both a mono and stereo version of the album, which was unheard of at the time. I’m thrilled that now, 40 years later, we followed through on that original idea.”
The 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of RAMONES is available September 9. Order your copy HERE!
The first disc features Leon’s newly remastered stereo and mono mixes of the album.
The anniversary edition’s second disc spotlights single mixes, outtakes, and demos. Several of those recordings have never been released, including demos for “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend,” “53rd and 3rd,” and “Loudmouth.”
The third disc captures the band performing two full sets live at The Roxy in West Hollywood on August 12, 1976. While the band’s first set has been available before, the evening’s second set makes its debut here. Rounding out the set is a vinyl LP containing the new mono mix of Ramones.
