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 Vinyl review June 7 2014
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
This review is for the vinyl record only as everything about the music is said in previous reviews.
First of all this is a great record and the music is outstanding. I am not sure what mix was used here because the mp3 files I had were more raw and harsher. Still, it sounds great.
There is a 2 LP reissue but Amazon is selling the Sundazed 1 LP version.
Quality wise, the record is just OK. The pressing is clean but the sound is not that loud. I also hear cuts after some songs as if the fade out was stopped before it was to 0db and that makes it a bit of an amateur mixing job. The record is not a 180 gram as you would expect from a recent reissue. It's thinner and at the price tag of 29$ they could have offered more.
The cover is just OK but kinda cheap compared to other reissues out there. The inner sleeve is a printed paper with a close-up of the front cover.
With taxes I paid 33$ for this average quality record and I feel a bit cheated but at the same time, this record is so good that I'm happy that I have it in vinyl quality!

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seminal Recording Aug. 20 2011
By Jim S
Format:Audio CD
It is hard to overestimate the impact of this record on the course of music. The remix of the studio album is excellent. It brings out a lot of detail in the music yet still retains the sheer (or should I say "raw") power of the music. The only downside is that the live CD is of such poor sound quality that no amount of remastering can fix the sound problems. The live performance itself is fantastic in patches but it is let down by the way it was originally recorded.

Out of everything they have ever released including the bootlegs, this album and period were their high water mark by far. Ashton is an decent guitar player but is a great bass player and Williamson was a great guitar player who invented the wild style everyone plays nowadays, nobody played like this before The Stooges did. The Ashton Bros. played drums and bass on this record, Williamson played guitar. Their albums are all great but this one is so much better than the other ones that it belongs on it's own planet. If they put this band back together again then you'd hear the REAL Stooges, he brought them to new heights. If you want to hear the record that started it all check this on out, you won't regret it, but it may have you wondering what happened to James Williamson and why he wasn't included in the new lineup.

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 MC5 meets Velvet Underground plus Iggy Pop May 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album will rock your socks off. Every song is catchy in its own way. Iggy Pop's best written-songs. Great punk rock wailing guitar, solid rhythm sections, interesting arrangements. Loud and fast, and slow and moody. Good-time Reckless abandon, destitute street rock... RAW POWER! Outrocks the "funhouse" album.

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?

3.0 out of 5 stars Overrated
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
