Rhino will issue a four-disc 40th anniversary deluxe edition of the Ramones fourth studio album Road To Ruin.
The 1978 album was the first to feature drummer Marky Ramone and includes the classic track I Wanna Be Sedated.

The deluxe set comprises three CDs and a vinyl LP. The first CD features a newly remastered version of the original stereo mix and a new 2018 stereo remix, called the ‘Road Revisited Mix’. The latter has been created by producer/engineer Ed Stasium and in the words of the record label “strips off the original record’s commercial gloss and restores the album to its punk rock core.”

The second CD offers up over twenty unreleased recordings, including rough mixes for every album track, different alternate takes of two songs, and two unreleased outtakes: I Walk Out and S.L.U.GAnother notable inclusion on this disc is the Ramones-on-45-Mega-Mix! from 1988 (issued as part of the campaign for the Ramones Mania compilation).

The final CD has a previously unreleased recording of the band’s entire 1979 New Year’s Eve concert, which was mixed live by Stasium, and broadcast on WNEW-FM. This was recorded in New York City at The Palladium, and the audio has been sourced from Tommy Ramone’s original cassette of the console recording!

The 180g vinyl record features the new Road Revisited Mix and not the original version of Road To Ruin.
