HERE), twenty years to tackle a track from one of America's greatest singer-songwriters, Bob Dylan, but that when they finally did tackle a Dylan tune then-new bassist CJ Ramone took over vocal duties from main man, Joey Ramone. CJ's vocals do give their version an even-greater rawness than Joey's fractured croon would have but Joey, as his cover of "What A Wonderful World" would soon prove, had the better chops and phrasing to wrestle with the mighty lyrics Dylan provided.
So what we have here is a short, solid session The Ramones did in the MTV studios in 1994 that contains two classics ("I Wanna Be Sedated" and "Rockaway Beach") with one of the stronger tracks from Mondo Biazarro ("Strength To Endure") and a preview of Acid Eaters in the form of the aforementioned cover of Dylan's "My Back Pages" (which I'm guessing da bruddas learned from The Byrds).
Ramones-maniacs:What do you make of their
cover of 'My Back Pages"?
