End Of The Century by The Ramones
Released: May 1979
Label: Warner Catalog And O/H
Teaming up with troubled genius Phil Spector, who reportedly drew a gun on the band during recording sessions, The Ramones attempted to make a commercially minded album, one that bridged the gulf between New York punk rock and the classic 1960s pop of their youth. Wildly hyped at the time of its release in 1980, End of the Century is an uneven affair. Not surprisingly, Spector's wall-of-sound production style lacks focus. That said, on "Do You Remember Rock N' Roll Radio?", as well as "The Return of Jackie and Judy" and The Ronettes' "Baby, I Love You," the band totally nails the concept.
