Paley Brothers made in U.S.A

C'mon Let's Go, the track with Ramones backing up Paley Brothers, was never released as a single in the U.S.
But Sire records still hoped to get the song on the radio and put together a 12" radio sampler with three tracks from the movie soundtrack to Rock'n'Roll High School. The 12" has the Ramones movie-title track and I want you around on the A-sida and C'mon Let's Go on the B-side.

Songs: Rock'n'Roll High School/I want you around//C'mon Let's go

Format: 12"
Number: Sire PRO-A-805
Year: 1979
Country: USA

Did you know...
... that the artist behind the front cover illustration of the Rock'n'nRoll High School sleeve and movie poster is William Stout, the former art director for Bomp! magazine and later on a famous artist of international renown in many fields: themed entertainment and motion picture design (specializing in science fiction/fantasy/horror films), comic book art, book illustration, poster design, CD covers, public murals, and reconstructions of prehistoric life. And that he has been the designer at the Michael Jackson NeverLand theme parks. He was born in 1949 and is now living in Pasadena, California.
