According to, Rhino has set an August 16 release date for THE RAMONES box set, "Weird Tales of the Ramones", featuring 85 tracks onto three discs of music and the DVD debut of "Lifestyles of the Ramones". Originally issued in 1990, the latter rounds up the band's complete Sire music video collection, bolstered by six clips the RAMONES made during their run on the MCA-affiliated Radioactive label.
