Thanks for sharing this! I am planning a unit on SK and music in for a course I will be teaching. This is a very helpful resource!

I was listening to my Ramones cd's. What always strikes me about their music, is that their studio recordings have this really clear sound. The music is simple and basic, of course, but it's recorded with great clarity.
On the other hand, their live recordings are just this big racket, which is just one long song basically (only interrupted with a quick 'one, two, three, four' between songs), which only very occasionally slows down a little. They play the songs much faster too live.
It's in the nature of punk of course to play as loud as possible, and sounding great is not punk's main concern. But why then take all that care to make them sound so great on the record? AC/DC for example does play their songs as tight as possible live too (it's not a punk band of course).

I never really completed buying all their cd's. I still lack six. The main reason being that, while I like their sound, a lot of the songs are just too samey. Only End of the Century is a real different sounding album. Pleasant Dreams sounds a bit different to me too, maybe because of the production of Graham Gouldman. Of the later albums Too Tough To Die is one I played a lot too.
According to the liner notes on Leave Home, 'Pinhead' was directly inspired by the classic horrorfilm Freaks (Tod Browning, 1932).

...mixing sound during a live concert-especially something as frenetic as punk, is an art form in itself.....not many can make a live recording event sound like anything but a mish-mash of cacophony.....
