Offered for sale is a limited edition yellow vinyl pressing of Road to Ruin by the Ramones, issued in the UK in 1978.
In the late 1970s, collectors around the world were showing a lot of interest in colored vinyl pressings, so record companies began releasing limited edition colored vinyl versions of both older and then-new titles. These were all available for a short time only and many of them are hard to find today.
Road to Ruin was seen in its day as a blatant attempt to increase sales and airplay, as the band hadn’t had much success with its previous releases, Rocket to Russia and Leave Home.
It didn’t really work, and Road to Ruin peaked at #103 on the American album chart. In retrospect, the album is regarded today as one of the Ramones’ better efforts.
Here’s a track from the album:
About this copy: This copy of Road to Ruin is a limited edition yellow vinyl copy, released in the UK shortly after the album’s original release in 1978.
The cover is VG+, with slight wear at the edges and corners. The custom inner sleeve is included, and has a few wrinkles, but no splits. The yellow vinyl record is M- and appears to have had little, if any, play.
A beautiful copy of a terrific record.
