This is The Ramones at the peak of their snotty three-chord power punk in 1976, finally available on 180 gram vinyl from Rhino and sounding great, or as great as The Ramones should ever sound. Live at The Roxy - August 12, 1976 is a no-brainer for fans of the band, or those looking for an introduction. It has a great setlist and is one of the best quality live recordings of the band.

7/10 Jack Customer review, 4th February 2018
I love the Ramones and unfortunately the power and impact of the majority of these songs is severely crippled by the production. More specifically, the bass is way too high in the mix and it ends up burying the guitars. When I listen to a punk album, I want the guitars to punch me in the face and this album doesn't quite pull it off in the way I had hoped it would. The song "Judy Is A Punk" is the sole exception to the rule. The guitars come through very clearly on that song. If the rest of the album sounded like that, this record would be perfect.
