"Be careful on this one. If you're die hard, you're gonna love anything they did and the hand-held camcorder thing will work for you and you will forgive the thin sound.If you are looking to understand the Ramones, you would do better picking up the Anthology CD set. They didn't look like this in person and they sure as hell didn't sound like this either.....the real sound was mind numbing, totally engaging, and in your face every second....if you forgot to think for one sec, you were lost. This video let's you quit thinking from the start.....this one would have been better left unreleased.....except that it's about all there is to see them now.....what a shame!"

"What can a die-hard Ramones say? I need shock therapy after watching this video. Or maybe I should sniff some glue... Well, Ramones fans will love this very personal video, shot from a camcorder. Reminds me of meeting the band in person. No hi-fi professional quality video here, but that's what the Ramones are: raw, in your face punk rock. I recommend this video to all pinheads around the world."
A "Ramones experience"

"I expected to see a slick, professionally produced video, but I was in for a surprise. The whole video is shot on a hand-held store bought camcorder! Complete with the sound quality you'd expect from a tiny camcorder mic! Really! That's the down side. On the up side, you get the feeling that you're actually right there with the band - when they're performing, relaxing backstage, getting mobbed by fans in their van. It's a raw kind of experience. I loved it. Just like their music - raw, in-your-face, kind of dumb, TONS of fun."

"Yes, it was that good of a movie. Though it doesn't include any music videos, it was the pre and original VHS edit of the newer Ramones video- "RAW."
Being the unedited first edition, this includes some unseen footage not on any other Ramones videos, including its predecessor listed above.
This video was [luckily] made in 1998, so it had time to group pieces from all The Ramones footage from their beginning, to their end. Unlike the 1991 compilation, "Lifestyles of the [Rich and] Ramones", this doesn't include any head-to-head interviews, just pure, raw concert footage; and some extra fun tidbits- like the go-kart race between The Ramones and some roadies. Another classic part from this masterpiece of a cult-flick, was the jumping of a Spanish fan from a concert hall balcony, to the roaring crowd 20 feet below; all while "Blitzkrieg Bop" (I think) is being rocked-out to it's limits by The Ramones.
As afforementioned, this video only has the works, getting down the bones of the world famous band, without throwing in any flashy intros, or crappy [supposed] real-life encounters with The Ramones. Only the best concert footage and on the road video was included in this round-up of Ramones footage. While little parts were later and previously shown in the "We're Outta Here" extra video and "RAW", this has got all the rare and classic shot you want.
If you want great concerts pics, or fun times on the road- this is for you. Whether you're new or old to The Ramones, all fans should own this video! SO go out and buy it!
Thanks for reading, "Gabba Gabba Hey", and "Have A Nice Day",
