Ramones Live at The Roxy, August 12, 1976 Vinyl LP
Live 1976 Recordings On Vinyl LP!
The Ramones ignited the punk-rock movement with their eponymous 1976 debut album, revitalizing rock and roll at one of its lowest ebbs with attitude, energy and a loud, fast new sound. By cutting music down to its bare essentials – four chords; a simple, catchy melody; a sped up tempo and irresistibly inane lyrics, the Ramones blazed the trail for thousands of bands that followed, influencing everyone from The Clash and The Sex Pistols to Green Day and The Offspring. Although The Ramones never achieved mainstream financial success, they released 21 live and studio albums, had a devoted fan base and were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.
"When this bootleg LP was recorded live at the Roxy Theater -- a nightclub on West Hollywood's famous Sunset Strip -- on August 12, 1976, the Ramones weren't ready to headline the Hollywood Palladium and were still concentrating on small clubs.
But the Queens residents did have one self-titled album out on Sire and had acquired a following that was small but extremely enthusiastic -- even then, they were regarded as one of New York's most important punk bands. ...the album definitely captures the freshness and sense of reckless fun that characterized the Ramones in 1976. When the Ramones tear into "Beat on the Brat," "Blitzkrieg Bop," "53rd and 3rd," "Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue" and other irreverent classics, you're reminded just how vital and exciting early punk could be." - allmusic.com
