Record of the week – She's The One

Don't Come Close, the first single from Road to Ruin, was disliked by many fans – and Johnny Ramone hated the "country & western"-song.
In the UK Sire tried to repair the damage with the release of the follow-up, the far more typical Ramones track She's The One.
The single was released on January 10, 1979 and was backed up with what today must be one of the most well-known Ramones songs ever, I Wanna Be Sedated. Two good tracks – and a really boring picture sleeve.
The second UK press was only released in the Sire company sleeve and has a different label with the big A on side one.
If the UK sleeve is a disappointment the german cover is one of the greatest. Read more about that one here.
And the 2011 Rhino reissue of the UK single is here.

 Songs: She's The One/I Wanna Be Sedated
Number: Sire SIR 4009
Year: 1978
