Editorial Reviews

Long before the raw power of punk icon Iggy Pop became legend, his first incarnation as Iggy Stooge of proto-punk trailblazers The Stooges roared into being. The essence of punk years before the genre existed, The Stooges' furious music was a howling, visceral, fuzztone-drenched, and unprecedented vortex of sound, as evidenced on their revolutionary self-titled, John Cale-produced 1969 debut album. Their bracing follow-up, Fun House portrayed their evolution into a fiercer, stronger band with Iggy's primal vocals and mad brilliance more potent than ever. Each immortal album is now remastered and twice as amazing with a second disc of rarities and previously unreleased tracks. Elektra. 2005.

I purchased this CD (and Funhouse) primarily to give my modern stereo a work-out. Anyone who has the pre-remastered Stooges CDs knows how muddy the quality was on those past releases, especially compared to today's artists and their CDs.

Not only did Elektra do a phenomenal job remastering the tapes, they turned both albums into necessary collector's editions for any Stooges fan. In addition to a legendary album remastered and brought up to today's standards, you get a bonus disc full of unreleased material.

In the case of the self-titled debut, the bonus disc contains what would have been the Psychedelic Stooges' first album, had producer/Velvet Underground-er John Cale had his way. Cale's original mixes (too "arty," as explained in the liner notes) for "No Fun," "1969," "I Wanna Be Your Dog," and "Little Doll" are included; at their best, they're completely different songs from the versions we all know. "I Wanna Be Your Dog" is the stand-out, with Cale burying the guitar and bringing the piano and bells to the fore, creating something so familiar yet so different to what is probably the Stooges' most well-known song. Oh yeah, and the bonus tracks are all remastered, too.

Unlike the remastering job that Columbia did with Raw Power, Elektra kept the rawness and the energy intact and created a mix that sounds great. None of the overmodulation and distortion -- you can turn this mother up LOUD. A very clean mix that still manages to keep the volume, danger and intensity of America's greatest rock band. Ever.

The new remastered version is 100% worth the money. The sound, the extras, and the liner notes are all great. The extras include some cool versions where they don't fade out Ron Asheton's extended wailing guitar solos. They just let him jam for a minute or longer than on the originals. That's exactly what I wanted, because it's his guitar that I really love. I agree with the other reviewer who said that this albums sound beats the pants off of the old version.

This album still thrills me, lo these many years later. When Iggy barks at Ron Asheton to "tell 'em how I feel!" with the heavy emphasis on the "I", Asheton reels off into one of my favorite guitar solos of all time: desperate, fuzzed-out and wah-wah heavy, spiraling and spinning until you KNOW how Iggy feels!This stuff sounds utterly spontaneous, almost as if they made it up on the spot, which is probably not far from the truth. I saw these guys right after Fun House came out, and they were the loudest, most intense dada-like band imaginable. Sonic Youth later stole their act. If you like your rock and roll primal, this one is it. Ron Asheston steals the show from the Ig.

There is a good reason why this is a bit of a mish mash compared to Fun House and Raw Power. It would probably be pretty fair to say that this album was pretty much rushed together, and after reading some stuff here and there you may discover that the initial version of the album had a few less songs, and those there were significantly longer than they ended up here. Has anyone noticed that when the songs end on this album, the song is kind of still going, they just fade out? (even in a couple songs just as a solo is starting)? Ron Asheton has said, for example, that Ann, in it's initial version, was over 8 minutes long, and here it has been cut to less than 3. I really hope those tapes still exist and we'll get to hear them some day. Anyway, the record company didn't like it (usual reasons, not commerical enough), so according to Ron, Real Cool Time, Not Right and Little Doll were written in the space of about 3 hours, rehearsed once and recorded on the first take. This isn't bad stuff though, by any means. It's just when compared to the classics (I mean Fun House, Raw Power) that followed it, it comes up a little short.

We Will Fall gets a lot of criticism, clearly because it's so inaccessible and different to the rest. If you're in the right frame of mind and prepared for what it has to offer though, I think it's great. Lie down, close your eyes and take it all in and it's damn eerie and addictive.

There's not much else to add really. A lot of these reviews are recycling the same information, but it's all true (well the good bits are).

When Iggy pop muttered his distain for the 60s at the beginning of this landmark album he perhaps was unaware of the angst ridden fetus he gave birth too. That child was punk rock, which has been so pillaged and diluted through the years that now it's a mere shell of it's primal self. However, in it's inception, it was a visceral, foaming, distortion soaked creature spewing the off key, blue collar pespective of troubled youth in Detriot. Envision incoherant, slurred vocals about loose woman, casual dope abuse and teenage shiftlessness and you have the stooge's debut album. The beauty about this ignored relic is it's simplicity.

Finally someone reissued this on a decent sounding, well packaged CD. This beats the pants off of the previous CD version. The bonus tracks are fascinating. What on Earth was John Cale thinking when he mixed I Wanna Be Your Dog with the guitar sounding like a bumble bee, the drums way off in another room somewhere and a giant set of sleighbells dominating everything? The record would never have ignited the punk revolution if it had been issued with his mixes. The liner notes and photos are informative. Look at those amplifiers! And that Mosrite bass.
