another cracking live ramones show from early 1976.it features 20 tracks for you all to pogo along to at home in the safety of your living rooms!but you know the score with da brudders so just listen,enjoy and leave a comment.thanks!
the first time i heard of these guys was when i bought the soundtrack to the film 'repo man' on cassette years ago.i think they had 2 tracks on it 'hombre secreto' and 'el clavo y la cruz',anyway i didnt know much else about them and only heard occasional other tracks from them over the years.so its with great delight that i present you with this compilation covering almost all of their recorded output.its a great listen and if their version of 'la bamba' doesnt make you want to dance then i dont know what will!anyhoo please listen,enjoy and if you have a moment leave a comment.thanks!
