4.0 out of 5 stars For Fans Only - But Worth It August 27, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I bought this mainly for the outrageous packaging. As someone lucky enough to have acquired the Funhouse box several years back, this was a must-have companion to that set for me. I groaned when I saw the track listing for Disc 1: 13 takes of "I Got a Right?" Who in their right mind could sift through this stuff?

Here's the deal: If you love the "Raw Power" album, then you need to get this. It's a true sign of Iggy and co.'s genius that those 13 "I Got a Right" takes are not only listenable, but intriguing. Hardcore fans will marvel at the painstaking process the band goes through to get the song down, each increasing try with more fury and intensity than the last.

Once you get through the song duplication of the first disc, the rest of the box showcases show rehearsals and incredible (but lo-fi) live recordings. If anything, these discs present a band as disciplined as any other, and are a real treat for James Williamson fans. For me, he, as much as Iggy, is the real heart of the "Raw Power" album.

Two beautiful booklets, jammed with unseen photos, essays, and vintage article repritnts, plus two stickers make this box a delight for true Stooges freaks. As the previous reviewer said, buy it now before it's gone. You know you need it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great rare Iggy August 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
If you missed out on Rhino's Fun House sessions box set, get this one, which chronicles the Stooges final years. Some of the live stuff is less than hi fi (but not awful sounding I should note), but that is no matter the performances are incendiary. Sure, it's expensive, but if you really like the Stooges, it's a must have, and you'll only be kicking yourself when it goes out-of-print. It also has tons of photos of Ig in action by Mick Rock that I've never seen anywhere else. Those guys must have put on a heck of a show. Nobody makes music like this any more. -- Hank

4.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware of quality November 11, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I feel bad doing this becuase I love Iggy and the stooges but the quality on this set is pretty bad. All the live recordings are worth listening to and probably owning but the quality is very rough and can get frustrating. It's like the first Beatles Anthology set: the material is amazing but the quality is bad. On the plus side the studio outtakes are decent quality wise and amazing content wise. The packaging is also very nice. I just though I'd share this information before you drop all the money on the set. If you are a Stooges fan don't hesitate purchase now but if this is your introduction you should probably wait.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Valuable Historical Documentary May 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yes, this box set does start off with an entire disc devoted to the complete recording sessions of "I've Got A Right" and "Gimme Some Skin" along with a couple of one-offs. Boring? Depends on your point of view. Many regard Rhino's complete Fun House recording sessions to be an invaluable document of the development of that album despite the fact that a whopping 24 versions of "TV Eye" are included there. Even though "I've Got A Right" was never officially released on an album, the same interest should apply here. For those who routinely collect The Stooges, this disc is essential. For the rest, it is a valuable historical document of the band at work... a documentary.

The rest of the material in this box features material that has been released before, but generally as (semi) bootlegs. Excepting the second disc, which also features high quality studio rehearsal sessions, the remainder of live recordings are indeed lower than hoped for. However, any true fan of Iggy and The Stooges should have been aware of this fact before spending the big money.

With that in mind, the inclusion of this material in a cohesive boxed set should not be considered a minus. Instead, this set is representative of what The Stooges sounded like shortly before (disc one) and after (the remainder) the release of Raw Power... again, a documentary from the early 1970s. Regarding this package as such, one should be able to overlook the sound quality and consider the historical value instead.

Hey! These live recordings were the best available... none of the live recordings of Iggy and The Stooges from that time period were magnificent, sound quality wise.
