Ramones Reissue Of ‘Leave Home’ Planned For 40th Anniversary

By: Renee Grant

Marking the 40th anniversary of the classic Ramones album Leave Home, a reissue of the LP has been announced.

Their sophomore album, first released in January 1977, features classic tunes by the band including Pinhead, California Sun, and Swallow My Pride. The album will be released in a deluxe edition as well as a single CD.

The deluxe edition, due out July 14th via Rhino, will be a 3-CD/1-LP set which will include two different mixes of the original album, a remastered version and a new 40th-anniversary mix by the album’s original engineer/mixer Ed Stasium.

“Generally, the consensus was [the original] maybe sounded too clean, the guitars panned completely left-right detracted from the band’s foreboding presence, and the reverb effects especially were a little excessive,” Stasium reveals in the album’s liner notes.

The second disc in the deluxe version features previously unheard and rare recordings, including 15 mixes of tracks recorded for the album at Sundragon Studio in New York. After the band removed the track Carbona Not Glue from the album after its initial release, Sheena is a Punk Rocker and Babysitter replaced the track in the U.S. and U.K. versions of the LP.

The third disc is a previously unreleased live show recorded at CBGB on April 2, 1977.

Packaged in a hardcover book, the deluxe edition contains stories about the group from their former manager Danny Fields, as well as behind the scenes details of the album’s recording from Stasium. Only 15,000 copies of the deluxe¬†edition will be produced. See a tracklist for the album below.
