RAMONES: Acid Eaters: CD

A bit of a diversion, this is a collection of covers of psychedelic ‘60s tunes originally done by the Amboy Dukes, the Who, the Byrds, Love, The Jefferson Airplane and others. I remember not thinking all that much of this upon its initial release, but it sounds a lot more interesting upon hearing it again, and some of them, like “Somebody to Love” and “My Back Pages” are actually pretty rockin’. Also included is an outtake of them doin’ “Surfin’ Safari.”
