The Ramones released their second album of the calendar year (and third overall) on November 4, 1977, capping off one of the biggest years in the history of punk with Rocket To Russia. Among the band's best-loved albums, it features classics like "Sheena Is A Punk Rocker" and "Rockaway Beach", along with their signature covers of "Do You Wanna Dance?" and "Surfin' Bird". It's also the last album ever recorded by all four founding members, as drummer Tommy Ramone left soon after to focus on writing and producing.

This 3CD/LP contains two different mixes of the album: a remastered version of the original and a new 40th Anniversary Tracking Mix by original Rocket To Russia engineer/mixer Ed Stasium. It also includes a number of unreleased studio recordings, plus a previously unissued recording of the band's 1977 concert in Glasgow, Scotland.

Rocket To Russia (40th Anniversary Deluxe) is produced in a limited and numbered edition of 15,000 copies worldwide and comes packaged in a 12 x 12 hardcover book. Along with the music, the set also features stories about the band by Sire Records founder Seymour Stein, details about making the album by Stasium, and extensive liner notes by renowned music writer and co-founder of Creem Magazine, Jaan Uhelszki.
