Celebrate the 40th anniversary of It’s Alive by the legendary Ramones with a special deluxe reissue! Originally recorded live at The Rainbow Theatre on New Year’s Eve 1977 – this is the first time the Ramones will release all four shows from this booking as one special set (4CDs+2LPs) - the MOST COMPLETE release to date! All newly-remastered by the original engineer and producer, Ed Stasium. NEW liner notes by Steve Albini and Ed Stasium.
IT’S ALIVE: 40th ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION features all four concerts that were professionally recorded during the Ramones’ U.K. tour in December 1977, three making their debut release: Top Rank, Birmingham (December 28, 1977); Victoria Hall, Stoke-On-Trent (December 29, 1977); Friars, Aylesbury (December 30, 1977); and The Rainbow Theatre, London (December 31, 1977).
Taking its name from a 1974 horror film, It’s Alive was the last album to feature all four original band members: Dee Dee Ramone, Joey Ramone, Johnny Ramone and Tommy Ramone. All four concerts included in the new Deluxe Edition capture the band in peak form as they storm through dozens of songs from the group’s influential catalog.
