Customer Review

on April 2, 2005
I am one of the many Ramones fans who favor their earlier material over the work of their later years. With that bias considered, I am surprised to find myself really enjoying this compilation. True, many of the recordings are so Studio-Clean that they lose some of that unique vintage Ramones flavor, but this is still some really good music.

The highlight for me is their cover of a song from The Doors' first album, "Take it as it Comes." This is one of the songs that critic Everett True bashed in his biography on The Ramones; all I can is while I thought True did a great job on their bio, I believe he is dead wrong on this tune. Joey Ramone's vocals alone make this one of the sweetest cover songs I have ever heard.

Another really great cover is "I Don't Want to Grow Up," written by the hubby & wife team of Tom Waits and Kathleen Brennan.

And if you are a die-hard fan of The Ramones' vintage works, this CD has some great live recordings of classics like "Rockaway Beach," "Blitzkrieg Bop," and "Sheena is a Punk Rocker."

This collection will never sell like other Ramones compilations, but if you are a Mega-Ramones fan, this collection is a must!
