'Blitzkrieg Bop' and 'I Wanna Be Sedated'—a live recording of their greatest hits

This cassette tape features 36 songs—with classic hits including 'Blitzkrieg Bop,' 'I Wanna Be Sedated,' and 'Sheena Is a Punk Rocker'—plus crowd noise and breaks. The concert was later released as Greatest Hits Live, omitting nineteen of these tracks and substituting studio versions for two others. This recording perfectly captures how the Ramones were heard and performed during their final tour. Includes an audio CD of the tape. A complete track listing is available here.
