The Ramones revitalized rock and roll at one of its lowest ebbs, infusing it with punk energy, brash attitude and a loud, fast new sound. When the punk-rock quartet from Queens hit the street in 1976 with their self-titled first album, the rock scene in general had become somewhat bloated and narcissistic. The Ramones got back to basics: simple, speedy, stripped-down rock and roll songs. Voice, guitar, bass, drums. No makeup, no egos, no light shows, no nonsense. On December 31, 1977, the Ramones played a classic show at the Rainbow Theatre in North London.
Having previously brought us Ernest Tubb Live 1965, Lost Gold has released the somewhat much less essential but enjoyable Live New Years Eve 1979, capturing Tubb 's stage act some 16 years later, from the Longhorn Ballroom in Dallas. He's not in as good form, in terms of his voice or range, but by this time Tubb was able to do his shows on pure style - "Thanks a Lot" is a perfect opener, a low-keyed but touching introduction, and he sustains that mood with "Half a Mind" and Jimmie Rodgers ' "In the Jailhouse Now"; those are merely the prelude to.

The Ramones’ set gave rise to what is seen by many as one of the greatest live albums ever released. Joey, Dee Dee, Johnny and Tommy’s performance was being recorded for what became the It’s Alive album, named after the US horror film of the same name. It was also captured in this video now hosted on the band’s YouTube channel. It’s Alive, which became a top 30 album in the UK, was the first of no fewer than seven live albums by the Ramones, although the two-LP set (produced by Tommy Ramone) wasn’t released until April 1979, some 16 months after the gig. As they headlined the Rainbow, the band had just released their third studio album Rocket To Russia, and their set contained songs from all three LPs to date including, of course, ‘Rockaway Beach,’ ‘Blitzkrieg Bop’ and ‘Sheena Is A Punk Rocker,’ each delivered with little more than their traditional 1-2-3-4 count-in.
