Record of the week – the french Sheena is a Punk Rocker
Released in 1977 the Sheena single is the third Ramones 45 from France. As with the Blitzkrieg bop single the year before the people at Philips did a great job with the picture sleeve – at least with the front side. The inspiration seems to have come to an end when it was time to do something with back side – it is once again all white.
Sheena is a Punk Rocker is backed up with Commando and not I Don't Care as on most other pressings. There is no "real" promo-version of this release, only copies stamped with promo on the sleeve. I have seen copies that are rubber stamped on the back of the sleeve and others that have an emossed stamp in the upper left corner.
Songs: Sheena is a Punk Rocker/Commando
