1-2-3 -4 !
Another compilation purchased in Granton on Spey was 1-2-3-4! one of the occasional Mojo Roots of Series - in this case obviously the Roots of The Ramones
It includes the likes of the Seeds, the Shangri-Las and Love who you would imagine influenced the Bruddas.
It also includes contemporaries such as Johnny Thunders & the Heartbreakers, Wayne County and Television.
Not sure how they constitute the roots of the Ramones.
A minor quibble as the music is terrific
Here are the Bruddas with Walter Lure of the Heartbreakers with a Stones cover, Ronnie Spector with a Joey Ramone song and a band who clearly also influenced the Cramps
Walter Lure & the Ramones - Street Fighting Man
Ronnie Spector - She Talks to Rainbows
The Trashmen - Bird Dance Beat
