More Info
The Ramones’ first live album celebrates its 40th anniversary this year with a new version that’s been updated with remastered sound and expanded with three unreleased concerts from the same tour. 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.

Produced in a limited and numbered edition of 8,000 copies, the 4CD/2LP 180-gram vinyl set comes packaged in a 12 x 12 hardcover book. It’s accompanied by new liner notes written by legendary record producer and musician Steve Albini and Ed Stasium, who produced and engineered "It’s Alive" and remastered all of the music included in this collection. This will be the first time that "It’s Alive" has been released on vinyl in the U.S. In addition, the set will be available through digital and streaming services.

It’s Alive: 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition features all four concerts that were professionally recorded during the Ramones’ U.K. tour in December 1977, three making their debut release: Top Rank, Birmingham (December 28, 1977); Victoria Hall, Stoke-On-Trent (December 29, 1977); Friars, Aylesbury (December 30, 1977); and The Rainbow Theatre, London (December 31, 1977).
