Album of the Day
It's Alive (40th Anniversary Edition)
The Ramones’ first live album, IT'S ALIVE, was recorded in London on New Year’s Eve 1977 and eventually released as a double album in 1979. Taking its name from a 1974 horror film, the concert collection was the last album to feature all four original band members and delivered a blistering barrage of live takes on classic tracks from the group’s first three albums. Now available, a 4-CD/2-LP Deluxe Edition of the seminal set features remastered sound and three additional concerts from the same tour, all of them previously unreleased. Among the numerous highlights are electrifying performances of “Blitzkrieg Bop,” “Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment,” “Sheena Is A Punk Rocker” and “Rockaway Beach.” Packaged in a 12 x 12 hardcover book with new liner notes, IT’S ALIVE: 40th ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION captures the legendary punk pioneers at their peak.
