Lot #5342
Ramones Signed Album

This lot has closed

Estimate: $400+


Leave Home album by the Ramones, signed on the back cover in black ink or felt tip by the four musicians who performed on the album—Joey, Johnny, Tommy, and Dee Dee Ramone—as well as by Richie Ramone, who signs with his rare early stage name, Richie Beau, a version he used before later switching to the Ramone surname. In fine condition, with a small discount cut to bottom edge, and a bend to lower right corner. The included record features the song 'Carbona Not Glue,' which, due to the mention of Carbona, a trademarked cleaning solvent, was later removed from Leave Home to avoid a potential lawsuit and was ultimately replaced with 'Babysitter' on UK pressings, and with 'Sheena Is a Punk Rocker' on US pressings. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from avid Ramones collector and fan Robert Martel, who states that the signatures "were obtained by me after a show in Hampton Beach, NH at their van shortly after Richie joined the band, except for Tommy's which I obtained during a personal signing session."
