Insound To Re-issue Ramones & Replacements On Vinyl

Since I'm doing merch at the Casbah tonight, it's time to catch up with some long overdue posts. If you're a vinyl collector, this one in particular should please you:

Insound is very proud to be announcing the start of a new and ongoing project to bring back great out-of-print punk, post-punk and indie singles. The goal is to make these titles available in their original form, re-pressed from the master tapes and with the original artwork - all of which makes them collector items today. Each release will be strictly limited to 1000 copies.

To start the project off, they've secured two long out of print records: The Ramones - California Sun EP and The Replacements - I'll Be You single.

The Ramones – California Sun EP: Originally released on Sire Records in 1976, The Ramones California Sun EP features the title track plus I Don't Want To Walk Around With You taped live at The Roxy on 8/12/1976. The B-side is the unforgettable studio version of I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend. This EP is highly sought after by Ramones collectors and goes for steep prices on the open market.

The Replacements – I'll Be You 7” Single: Released in 1989, this superb single from the Minnesota legends' Don't Tell a Soul album also contains a Non-LP B-side song Date To Church featuring the inimitable Tom Waits. The long out-of-print single is essential for Replacements and Tom Waits fans. Click here for more details
