Hell yes. Ron's bass playing is one of the main reasons I try to seek out as many Raw Power era bootlegs that I can. So far my favorite document of this may be the fifth disc of the Heavy Liquid box set. It's a recording of them at the Whiskey I believe and man does it just knock the walls down.

If so then yes, it's great. Better quality than a lot of Raw Power era bootlegs and you can hear Ron Asheton's bass playing very, very well which is always a good thing.

im not so interested in the second live disc i really want to hear the remastered bowie mix of the studio album.


I'd just buy the thing then since it sounds totally fine. Very comparable to the original issue of Raw Power that I have on vinyl. That second disc is also worth it, trust me.


Once again - you'll like it just fine. It sounds great. Buy it.

Not Crap. I love Funhouse and Raw Power. Seeing them play a couple of years ago was a joy. Iggy's still all over the shop like a mad woman's shit.

Awesome.

Also, one of the best Riders I have ever seen-

I don't know how many CD releases there are of the Bowie mix, but I downloaded original-attribute mp3s of an older version of "Search and Destroy" and the new Legacy version. Honestly they sound pretty similar, except the new one is a little louder (still not even close to the Iggy remix!) and has a bit more midrange or something. In my personal opinion, they are both a little brittle sounding, which obviously has much to do with the mix itself.

I opened this in a new tab without watching it at first and had no fucking idea what I was listening to. Needless to say, this was a powerful moment in The Stooges' career.

Oh my god I used to drive past Farmington High School. Not often, but it would happen.

What's that make it, like three actual photos of both Ron and James on guitar that are actually in existence? These are great shots. The people on the Stooges forum would cream their pants over these, I'm sure!

Okay.

Sounds like a Weirdness outtake, which is strange since Ron Asheton is out of the picture. Or maybe not so strange.

Would have been really cool if they recorded the album's plus worth of Raw Power era material. I'd think much more highly of that than forcing shit that clearly just isn't there.

I gave The Weirdness a spin a few weeks ago and couldn't stop playing it all day. There's some fine songs on there, 'I'm Fried' in particular.

I have always thought the Stooges were ok, never paid much attention beyond that. I had heard them and know all about it and yeah it's cool and whatnot, just not my cup of tea, as far as listening pleasure. It took 6 some odd years of my wife playing them at full volume at some point literally every single day, I finally turned yesterday and said 'I never notice before but the The Stooges are fucking AWESOME'

I am looking forward to this new one in as much as Williamson is a "song writer" and usally puts the screws to Iggy to come up with the goods to the song. As well he is a engineer with ears somthing that could come in handy when making a Stooges album. Having walked away from Iggy and a album he thought was bullshit pretty much gives him some credibility/leverage in wipping the situation into shape.

Ron Ashton is more of a Riff player as opposed to a song writer he would get a good riff going and Iggy needed to be self motivated to "group" create the material.

On The Weirdness Iggy was not phoning it in but did not seem to be particularly inspired either. He seems to have lost the anger and wit of his youth and have found nothing particularly interesting content or subject matter wise to replace it with. Some of the lyricis never get anywhere above the trival. You don't feel Iggy has much to say about himself or the world.

In the Weirdness Ron's riffs seem only OK but more in the style of Bon Jovi or light metal(as were the drums) but probibly overall the record would have been more enjoyable song and production wise if it were a comback for some lower level metal band from the 80s midwest rather than a stooges record. Expectations would be non existant. Honestly the situation might have been inproved if either of the producers from the first two Stooges albums were onboard and the band did not "self-produce" the album. From the re-mixes iggy has done I think he may have lost his hearing or had it replaced with a artificial tin ear.

But... it sounded like they had a good time making it. Honestly it was probibly the best they could do not being crazy, hungry, wild and young. It sounds like a confortablely old, full stomached (content not flabby) and post rehab. Which is great for them as a band and people but less enjoyable as a listener. Like seeing a car race under the Yellow flag the whole race, no wrecks, bodies or explosions.
