LP Ramones – Demos 1975
THE RAMONES, hoping to aid the securing of a record deal, made many demo recordings of their early material.
Mostly recorded in the first part of 1975 (some sources even state late 1974) with a second, shorter attempt in September,
these offer the best glimpses of the band in its formative stages.
(Two notable films also exist from this period – a three song shambles of a 9/15/1974 performance featuring an eerily childlike RAMONES at an astonishingly early CBGB show, and a powerfully raw, but still not quite fully developed setlong video shot at ARTURO VEGA’s loft in March of 1975, basically halfway between the demo sessions).
These are the Dick Charles Studios demos from early February 1975.
914 Studio demos from Sept ’75 and only two songs produced by Marty Thau (Judy is a Punk and I Wanna be Your Boyfriend).
