Ramones To Reissue ‘It’s Alive’ With Bonus Concerts

Marking the 40th anniversary of the band’s first live, album It’s Alive, The Ramones are due to release a deluxe edition on September 20 via Rhino Records.

The six-disc version, a four-CD/two-LP package, has been updated with remastered sound and three unreleased concert recordings from the punk rock band’s U.K. tour in December 1977.

“Originally recorded in London on New Year’s Eve 1977 and eventually released as a double album in 1979, It’s Alive delivered a blistering barrage of live takes on classic tracks from the band’s first three albums,” Rhino said in a statement.

The remastered album, It’s Alive: 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition, was launched with a previously unreleased version of “Blitzkrieg Bop.”

Taking its name from a 1974 horror film, It’s Alive was the last album to feature all four original members of the band: Dee Dee Ramone, Joey Ramone, Johnny Ramone and Tommy Ramone.
