Details

[Edit]

Assembled by Joey Ramone’s (real) brother Mickey Leigh, these songs were unearthed and put to music by a coterie of faithful friends, including Stevie Van Zandt, Joan Jett, and Plasmatics guitarist Richie Stotts. While some tracks clearly have a ring of familiarity—the guitar tone on “I Couldn’t Sleep,” Joey’s hiccupping refrains on “There’s Got to Be More," and the melody on “What Did I Do to Deserve You” are all pure Ramones—other tunes really do show what post-Ramones Joey could accomplish. The hollow, buzzsaw licks on the tasty “Going Nowhere Fast” evoke Stotts' old band more than Joey’s. The sweet ‘60s pop of “Party Line” (featuring Beth Vincent of Holly & The Italians) and the “anthem lite” vibe of “Seven Days of Gloom” and “Rock’n’Roll Is the Answer” are pop/punk fun on their own terms. There are a few moments of sheer weirdness: imagining Joey feelin’ Hank Williams on “Waiting for that Railroad” is a bit unsettling, as is the calypso-flavored “Make Me Tremble.” The acoustic retake on The Ramones’ “Life’s a Gas” makes a sweet ending.
