Johnny, Joey, Dee Dee, Tommy, Marky, Richie, and C-Jay - the Ramones will always be the first "family" of punk. Together more than 20 years, the Ramones inspired legions of followers as they refined their signature garage-flavored, ear-shattering, pop-skewed sound with a string of now-classic, loud-and-fast punk rock records and 2,263 concerts. Rhino sends you back to rock rock, rock 'n' roll high school with a double-DVD that captures the essence of the Ramones' legendary racket with more than four hours of rare and unreleased performances. IT'S ALIVE 1974-1996 will be available October 1 at regular retailers.
More than four years in the making, Tommy Ramone served as music supervisor for this collection. Arranged chronologically over two DVDs, IT'S ALIVE 1974-1996 relives some of the band's best performances with live footage of more than 100 songs, including "Sheena Is A Punk Rocker," "Blitzkrieg Bop," "Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue," "Beat On The Brat" and "I Wanna Be Sedated." With more than four hours of impossible-to-find and unreleased live footage, this collection will make you feel like you're standing in stale beer at CBGB shouting along with Dee Dee as he counts off, "One, two, three, four!"
The DVD also includes previously unreleased footage filmed on New Year's Eve in 1977 during the band's incendiary performance at The Rainbow Theatre in London. The entire concert was released in 1979 as the It's Alive album, considered one of the best live records ever. The DVD features 14 songs in 5.1 Surround Sound taken from the show including "Pinhead," "We're A Happy Family," and "Havana Affair."
Nine performances recorded in 1982 at the US Festival in San Bernardino, CA are also featured here in 5.1 Surround Sound. The band fires off hit after hit, blazing through "The KKK Took My Baby Away," "Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment," and "Rock 'n' Roll High School." During the show, the band also covers "Chinese Rocks," a song Dee Dee wrote, which was recorded by Johnny Thunders and The Heartbreakers.
Spanning the Ramones' entire career, the DVD follows the band from its earliest performances at CBGB, to their last international performance in Argentina. IT'S ALIVE 1974-1996 travels around the world with the Ramones, capturing priceless performances in the U.K., Germany, Sweden, Spain, Argentina, Finland, Italy and the U.S. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002, the band may be gone, but their sound and influence are indestructible.
