Ramones’ Leave Home will be reissued for its 40th anniversary. Their January 1977 sophomore studio album, which includes their classics “Pinhead,” “California Sun” and “Swallow My Pride,” will be reissued in a deluxe edition and will also be available as a single CD.

Ramones: Leave Home 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition, out July 14th via Rhino, is a three-CD/one-LP set that includes two different mixes of the original album. One is a remastered version of the original stereo mix and the other is a new 40th Anniversary mix by the album’s original engineer/mixer Ed Stasium. The latter is also featured on the vinyl LP.

“Generally, the consensus was [the original] maybe sounded too clean, the guitars panned completely left-right detracted from the band’s foreboding presence, and the reverb effects especially were a little excessive,” Stasium writes in the liner notes.

The second disc houses unheard and rare recordings, which includes rough mixes of 15 tracks recorded for Leave Home at Sundragon studio in New York. It also features “Sheena is a Punk Rocker” and “Babysitter,” which were replacement songs in the U.S. and U.K. versions of the album after the band removed “Carbona Not Glue” shortly after its initial release. The third disc comprises a previously unreleased live show recorded at CBGB on April 2nd, 1977.

The deluxe edition comes packaged in a 12″ x 12″ hardcover book, which features stories from the group’s former manager Danny Fields (as told to music writer Michael Azerrad) alongside making-of-the-album details provided by Stasium. Only 15,000 individually numbered copies of the deluxe edition will be produced.

The newly remastered original version of Leave Home will also be available separately as a single CD. The Leave Home set follows last year’s 40th Anniversary edition of the Ramones’ debut album.
