Ramones – “Rocket To Russia” Remaster Test Pressing LP/ From Producer Ed Stasium
Wikipedia notes: The recording began on August 21, 1977 and took place in Midtown Manhattan at Media Sound Studios…On the first day of sessions, guitarist Johnny Ramone brought a copy of the Sex Pistols’ single “God Save the Queen” with him, remarking that their type of music “robbed” the band. He emphasized that the album’s sound engineer Ed Stasium needed to incorporate better production than that of the Sex Pistols, to which Stasium replied “no problem”. Johnny relates: “These guys ripped us off and I want to sound better than this.”
Though the album cites Tony Bongiovi and Tommy Ramone as the head producers, much of the album’s production was done by Stasium; Johnny went so far as to insist that Bongiovi was “not even there” during the band’s recording sessions.
Matrix numbers are RR1-6042 A RT Sterling One-Two-Three-Four 21529 1A and RR1-6042 B RT Sterling Cretins Gonna Hop Some More 21529 1B.
