Rhino’s ongoing series of deluxe box sets celebrating the Ramones’ legacy continues with a fifth entry: the 40th anniversary 4CD/2LP edition of the band’s 1979 live album It’s Alive. Limited to 8,000 units, the It’s Alive Deluxe Edition is packaged in a 12 x 12 hardcover book featuring new liner notes by Steve Albini and original album producer-engineer Ed Stasium, who also remastered the music here. It features all four concerts that were professionally recorded during the band’s U.K. tour of December 1977, three of which are making their first 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). The latter was utilized for the original album release, which became the last LP to feature all four original Ramones: Dee Dee, Joey, Johnny, and Tommy Ramone. The original album will be pressed on two 180-gram vinyl LPs for this release.
