Loud, Fast Ramones: Their Toughest Hits (Sire / Rhino)

RamonesLoud, Fast Ramones: Their Toughest Hits (Sire/Rhino) A single-disc truncation of the far more comprehensive and satisfying Hey Ho Let's Go! anthology from 1999. Surviving compiler Johnny Ramone hammers together 30 loud, fast Dee Dee-heavy punk rockers culminating in the late bassist's little-known, late-career trio of champions, "Main Man," "Strength to Endure," and "The Crusher." The 18-minute bonus disc, from 1985's Too Tough to Die tour, crushes, too, as do David Fricke's blueprint liner notes, also truncated.
