Following up a great debut like Ramones, released in 1976, was always going to be a trick. That album generated not only a fourteen track classic running just under 30 minutes total, but became a launchpad for many bands afterwards. It provided a template to American Punk that is respected and highly revered.

In 1976, less than a year later, Ramones followed up their great debut with Leave Home. Like Ramones, it contained fourteen songs, and clocked in under 30 minutes as a whole. And since it’s currently 2017, that marks 40 years since the release of Leave Home. And…like Ramones, it is being treated well with a massive and definitive celebratory update.

On July 21, Rhino will, once again, revisit Leave Home. In the pipeline is an Anniversary set that will spread over 3CDs/1LP as a Deluxe Edition. The vinyl LP will feature the 40th Anniversary Mix. As Ramones (the album) was given a grand 40th Anniversary set, Leave Home will be so honored. The original album will be released as a single CD issue.

Here’s what you can expect including a brand new remaster of the original mix PLUS the inclusion of a 40th Anniversary Mix:
