Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Iggy's torturous, red-lined remix puts the claws, violence, and danger back in grooves first cut in '73 (and supposedly botched in David Bowie's far more tame--and somewhat more listenable--original mix). Result: Sublime Motor City mayhem. --Jeff Bateman

Product Description

Limited double 180gm vinyl LP pressing of this classic album contains two different versions. LP One features the recently remastered version of David Bowie's original 1972 mix. After years of criticism, regarding the original mix, this new edition will set the record straight for once and for all. LP Two is the 1997 edition that was revamped by Iggy Pop himself. Same 8 songs, whole new sonic approach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite album Feb. 11 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album made me an Iggy Pop fanatic. I bought this album because I bought and enjoyed the Stooges first album. That first album though in no way prepared me for how much I'd enjoy this album. The way this album gets my blood racing, the catchy guitar licks, the sick visceral voice and lyrics...this album is STILL ahead of it's time even today. I think groups of today are not only trying to recreate this sound, they're struggling to KEEP UP WITH IT. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw, Dangerous, Timeless. Oct. 13 2003
Format:Audio CD
Few artists have attempted the type of insane showmanship, violent assault or ferocious intensity of Iggy Pop and The Stooges, a band that remains highly influential. Groups like The Vines, The Hives, The Red Hot Chili Peppers and others are it's heirs. "Raw Power" along with "Fun House," is the band's masterwork. The band's earlier work, which included classics such as "I Wanna Be Your Dog" and "1969" were wonderfully chaotic outings, but "Raw Power" is focused chaos, a scorching mix of brilliant musical violence that has been remixed here with great skill. Some have complained that it is simply Iggy pumping up the distortion, but wasn't this always the case with The Stooges, were they not about pumping things up? Look at the new "Search And Destroy," take the original version and you immediately notice the difference. The original sounds more tame, even muffled, here it rips and roars with a stronger base and more clear vocals. This is especially true with "Gimme Danger," one of the Stooge's best cuts. Here is sounds clear, sharp and more focused and you can really appreciate Iggy's performance and the lyrics ("kiss me like the ocean breeze"). As an album "Raw Power" is still stunning, especially since compared to today's brand of distorted rock it doesn't seem to have aged at all and if released today it would still be called a masterpiece. Like his master, Jim Morrison, Iggy's lyrical and vocal attitudes here are ahead of their time as well as the sound. "Penetration" resounds with complete intensity and a quasi-classic feel while "I Need Somebody" sounds like great hard rock blues. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Hits you like a freight train Oct. 12 2003
By Carter
Format:Audio CD
The title of this album is just perfect. It suits the music so well and it's so, so true.
Plug in the headphones, put this cd in the lid and turn the volume all the way up - now you're ready for one of the loudest, most unforgiving sonic assaults in the history of all things rock & roll.
Greg Lasley was right in some of his assersions, yeah they did try out studio muscians for the band but promptly flew the Asheton brothers over when that didn't work out. Considering Bowie actually saved Iggy's career and allowed him a chance to record again, I think he deserves some credit for this. Your point about the production being shoddy in the original I agree with, although that's the very point of this remix being made (and the remix is of course the version we're referring to here).
Something else to note, a quote from the long interview with Iggy in the booket, "I don't think a new version improves the record, it just gives people who admire a strong rock band, and particularly people who are used to hearing things at today's standards of technology, a chance to hear that band in a way that's legible, audible, in a way that the original record was not." Iggy gives credit to Bowie's original mix (particular tracks Gimme Danger & You're Pretty Face) and makes it quite clear he's giving a new perspective on the record instead of trying to overshadow Bowie's mix.
Sometimes you hear music and you read people saying stuff like 'This music absolutely shocked people when it was first released', but you can't really hear it. Well, with the new remix, which turns everything right up to red, the album still has the same pummeling effect it must have had in 1973.
Highlights on this album are definitely 'Search & Destroy', 'Gimme Danger' & 'Raw Power'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock in it's purest form Aug. 30 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
"... This brings me to Raw Power, the belated third album originally ruined by David Bowie. You may know that it's been remixed by Iggy himself, though you may not be aware of the rampant levels of righteosity that it reaches. The bad production tragically concealed a monster for over 20 years: this is rock at its peak, its apex, it's all downhill from here, baby. This is the sound of a band beating its head against the wall til it bleeds; from 'Search & Destroy' to 'Death Trip', never before or since - no, not even Bollocks or Damaged achieved this - (...). I would even be tempted to say that the remixed Raw Power is in fact the Stooges' best album, even surpassing the oft-referred to Funhouse. Any self-respecting music fan who feels that a song like 'Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell' or 'Shake Appeal' is 'dumb' or 'childish' sure lives a hell of a sad existence, believe you me." - Ron Asheton

5.0 out of 5 stars But this the greatest rock record of them all Dec 28 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Honestly too many dull stooge fanatics get hung up the semantics of the band lineup and the billing iggy & stooges on this record. The simple fact is that this the greatest record iggy or anyone in rock has ever been involved in period The album starts with the blitzkrieg of 'Search and Destroy' which wipes the floor with all of the stooges previous efforts (within the first couple of bars) Funhouse lp has got its place as the punk pre-cursor of punk in history but where on that record do you hear the sublime guitar frenzy of 'Your pretty face is going to hell'? Where do you get the straight up wierdness of 'Penetration' or the gal to front the violent pysched 50s throwback 'Shake appeal' Even the concluding and uneven 'Death trip' will violate you in way no other record will dare...like who ever sat through the entirity of La Blues borefest on Funhouse?

What else can I say? It's not that great of an album. Nowhere near the heights they acheived in Funhouse. There are a few great songs, but only a few, and quite a few lame ones. Read more
