King, Dee Dee - Standing In The Spotlight (LP)
Dee Dee Ramone's legendary rap album is finally back on vinyl! 2017 limited reissue on black vinyl with replica packaging.
Dee Dee Ramone's "Standing in the Spotlight" will go down in the annals of pop culture as one of the worst recordings of all time. Which, of course, makes it one hell of a great collector's item. Dee Dee plumbs the depths of stupidity for this record, musically (hip-hop done in some sort of off-rhythm samba beat) and lyrically. To give some credit, "Poor Little Rich Girl" and "Emergency" sound like the same overproduced pop-punk the Ramones were putting out in the mid-'80s, while "The Crusher" was redone much more aggressively on the Ramones' 1995 Adios Amigos. Also, Debbie Harry sings backup on two tracks.
