Ramones' First Four Albums Getting Vinyl Reissue Treatment with Bonus 7-Inches
By Josiah HughesAs time goes on, the influence of New York punk rockers the Ramones continues to spread. With that in mind, there's never a bad time to revisit their classic first four records, which is why we're happy to report they will be getting 180-gram vinyl reissues courtesy of Rhino.

According to an announcement from the label, the records -- Ramones, Leave Home, Rocket to Russia and Road to Ruin -- will "come in accurate representations of the original packaging" and "were made using lacquers cut from the original analog masters by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering."

In addition to that news, 500 copies of each record will come bundled with a blue seven-inch featuring a single and B-side from each album.

Ramones will include "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend" backed with "California Sun/I Don't Wanna Walk Around With You," Leave Home will contain "Swallow My Pride" backed with "Pinhead" and a live recording of "Let's Dance," Rocket to Russia will feature "Sheena is a Punk Rocker" backed with "I Don't Care" and Road to Ruin will come packaged with "She's the One" backed with "I Wanna Be Sedated."

All four reissues will be available on July 19 from Rhino.
