JOEY RAMONE: “…Ya Know?”: CD

Finally, the long lost second album is given to the hungry masses. Joey’s brother Mickey Leigh put this all together, along with help from producer Ed Stasium. Mickey hints at why the holdup took place, but I will leave the real story to a possible upcoming exposé article from Designated Dale. Many guests are featured here: Joan Jett, Andy Shernoff, and Ritchie Ramone among many others. There are the usual straight-ahead rockers, but Joey brings the pace down on a couple acoustic-based songs. This is going right next to my “Poison Heart” single signed by Joey and I won’t be parting with either until I kick the bucket. “Rock’n’Roll is the answer” indeed.
