Rock N’ Roll Radio, 6. I Believe in Miracles, 7. Shock Treatment, 8. Rock N’ Roll High School, 9. I Wanna Be Sedated, 10. The KKK Took My Baby Away, 11. I Wanna Live, 12. Bonzo Goes to Bitburg, 13.

The consignor notes that this video was personally seized by the Ramones band management when Johnny Ramone discovered that they were being illegally sold at a Ramones show in Japan. ‘When Johnny Ramone returned from their Japanese tour he called me up and asked me if I wanted a copy of the few remaining bootleg VHS cassettes. I said ‘YES’ and a week later this very VHS cassette showed up at my PO Box in Washington, D.C.’
