Ramones - Leave Home (Remastered) LP
RAMONES (NY, USA) - Leave Home (2018 Rhino Re-issue) (sealed LP copy) (180gram Black vinyl). Leave Home is the second studio album by NYC Punk Rock band The Ramones. It was originally released on January 10th, 1977 through Sire Records.
The songs on Leave Home concentrate on various themes, with the musical tones being diverse as well. Some tunes were more pop-oriented, while others, like "Gimme Gimme Shock Treatment" and "Pinhead" were loaded with distorted guitars and had a more of a straight forward Punk Rock sound.
The writing and structure are both somewhat more sophisticated than the songs on their previous debut record. Guitarist Johnny Ramone relates: "We recorded them in the order they were written; we wanted to show a slight progression in song structure." Most of the songs were written in the band members' homes, rather than in a recording studio. Leave it to the Ramones to remain untraditional and groundbreaking all at the same time.
