Ramones

Any Ramones fan that doesn’t have the band’s earlier albums will soon have the chance to score all of them at once, as a new box set packing the Ramones’ first six studio albums is slated to arrive later this month. “Ramones: The Sire Years (1976-1981)” will include re-mastered versions of the group’s famed 1976 debut, “Ramones”; their 1977 releases “Leave Home” and “Rocket to Russia”; 1978’s “Road to Ruin”; 1980’s “End of the Century”; and, finally, 1981’s “Pleasant Dreams.”

On top of the standard, six-CD set, an expanded edition of the box set will also be for sale via digital outlets. The expanded edition will feature the rest of the Ramones’ releases from the 1980s, including 1983’s “Subterranean Jungle,” 1984’s “Too Tough to Die,” 1986’s “Animal Boy,” 1987’s “Halfway to Sanity” and 1989’s “Brain Drain.” So, just call this the ultimate Ramones package for diehards.

Both the physical and digital editions of “Ramones: The Sire Years (1976-1981)” will arrive on Oct. 29.
