Sounds good to me!
Interesting about the out-takes - tracks that have never been bootlegged before... I wonder where they found them?

Looks like this one has the potential to be the best thing since the Fun House box, that's for sure. Fingers crossed these new titles aren't more discarded jams, some new pre-RP demos would be amazing. Not sure I need a 48 page book of "essays + testimonials" though, especially ones by people who had no part in the making of the album. Guess Rollins is there to tell the bizarre story of how he ended up with the master tape.

Possibly a version of "Big Time Bum"? Since it was also known as "Niggerman".

Exciting stuff indeed. I wonder where these new outtakes are from - the album sessions themselves? The pre-album Olympic/RG Jones sessions? Or somewhere completely different? Are the alt mixes the original Stooge mixes in good quality at long last, or alt Bowie mixes, or new mixes? Is Head On from the Detroit tapes or somewhere else? So many questions...

“I always liked Raw Power. A lot. I knew that not a lot of other people would like it at the time it was made, but what could I do? Seeing it re-released yet again on Sony Legacy is deeply satisfying. The Stooges and I are cocked and loaded to follow up and deliver it live on stage in 2010.” – Iggy Pop



A work-in-progress for decades (and decades), with search-and-recovery efforts in studios and archives on both sides of the Atlantic – pays off in 2010 with a box-load of previously unreleased recordings by Iggy and the Stooges from the Raw Power “era” of 1972-73 – including a full-length nightclub concert in Atlanta whose excer pt s have been among the most bootlegged rock relix of all time.

The renaissance of interest and curiosity surrounding Raw Power – the album that almost single-handedly detonated the punk-rock movement in the next few years after its release – could not have arrived at a more appropriate time. The Stooges are inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame at ceremonies in New York City on Monday, March 15, 2010.

On April 13th, the waters will part for the double-disc RAW POWER: LEGACY EDITION, the newest entry in Legacy’s prestigious series of multi-disc packages. Following the Legacy Edition by two weeks, RAW POWER: DELUXE EDITION -- a fully-packed 7-inch square slipcase box set containing three audio CDs, a DVD docu­mentary, a 48-page book, five 5x7-inch prints, and a bonus 7-inch 45 rpm picture sleeve single – will be released exclusively through www.iggyandthestoogesmusic.com. (This distribution mode was used most recently for the special collectable AC/DC Backtracks guitar amplifier box set.) Pre-orders are being taken now in advance of the April 27th release date.

Both the DELUXE EDITION and LEGACY EDITION are produced by Iggy Pop, Bruce Dickinson, and Robert Matheu. Dickinson is a 15-year Legacy veteran who has produced projects for the company ranging from Cheap Trick, the Clash and Bob Dylan, to John Cale, Mott The Hoople, Peter Tosh, Patti Smith, Blue Öyster Cult, and dozens of others.

Also working closely with Iggy is Matheu, author of last year’s definitive The Stooges: The Authorized and Illustrated Story (Abrams). Named official Stoogeologist by the band, Matheu has been archiving and chronicling their history ever since his teenage years as a music photographer in Detroit , where he attended the earliest Stooges shows. His work has appeared in Playboy, the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone, and Mojo, as well as on over 200 albums, including the Stooges' 2007 reunion album, The Weirdness.



Raw Power



At the core of both the DELUXE EDITION box set and LEGACY EDITION is the original Raw Power album by Iggy and the Stooges (James Williamson on guitars, the late Ron Asheton on bass, Scott Asheton on drums), as iconic and influential a rock record as has ever seen light of day in our lifetimes, with its unforgettable Mick Rock photography on the front and back. Nearly four decades after its release on Columbia Records in February 1973, the eight-song, 34-minute sonic blitzkrieg – source of “Search And Destroy,” “Gimme Danger,” “Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell,” “Penetration,” “Raw Power,” “I Need Somebody,” “Shake Appeal,” and “Death Trip” – is still capable of causing ears to bleed and hearts to flutter.

This Raw Power CD restores the original release – as it was produced in the fall of 1972 at CBS Studios in London by Iggy Pop, and mixed in Hollywood by David Bowie. This 2010 version is newly remastered by Grammy®-winning Sony Music engineer Mark Wilder, and should finally put the lie to years of stigma attached to Bowie ’s mixes. As Dickinson points out, “ Bowie ’s mixes were at the mercy of old-school mastering engineers in 1972 who, quite simply, had never heard anything like Raw Power before, and their final eq proved it.” With Wilder on board, Bowie ’s mixes, unjustly skewered, now turn out to be up-to-the-task and beyond.

(In 1996, Iggy finally acknowledged those criticisms of the album’s sound and acce pt ed Legacy’s invitation to personally remix Raw Power. “Everything’s still in the red, it’s a very violent mix,” Iggy said at the time. “The proof’s in the pudding.” That single-CD configuration of Raw Power has been a perennial catalog staple for Sony Music around the world ever since its release in 1997, and will stay in-print in Legacy’s Original Album Classics series.)



“ Georgia Peaches”



Also featuring on the DELUXE EDITION and LEGACY EDITION is disc two, titled “Georgia Peaches,” a one-hour performance at Atlanta’s notorious rock club Richards in October 1973 where Iggy and the Stooges played three or four nights, two sets each night, with one long set on Friday and Saturday nights. Many collectors (including Matheu and Dick­in­son) were in possession of various heavily-edited shards from Richards, as much as a half-hour’s worth on cassette.

After the Stooges reunion got underway in 2003, Ron Asheton made Matheu aware of a Richards cassette he had stored away. Matheu employed due diligence and his sleuthing led him to Joe Neil, the original recordist of ‘Sam’s Tape Truck’ parked outside Richards (who now runs an archive house and digital recording facility in Atlanta called Doppler Studios). Many, many shows were recorded at Richards for the top labels, for use on syndicated radio shows like King Biscuit Flower Hour. But radio was never ready for Iggy and the Stooges, and so the original pristine board tapes languished from 1973 on. Their discovery on Joe Neil’s desk is akin to the Rosetta Stone of Iggy and the Stooges missing links.

A few of the album’s songs were still in the set by the time they played Richards – “Raw Power,” “Gimme Danger,” “Search And Destroy,” “I Need Somebody” – but as Matheu observes, “They weren’t just going out and playing the Raw Power album in its entirety. They were constantly writing new songs and updating the setlist with new songs, always thinking forward.” So the other four “Georgia Peaches” songs – “Head On,” “Heavy Liquid,” “Cock In My Pocket,” and “Open Up And Bleed” – would all be part of the set by the time Iggy and the Stooges were in their final stages together as a band five months later, back home at the Michigan Palace in February 1974, as first documented on the Metallic KO album.

The “ Georgia Peaches” disc concludes with two previously unreleased bonus tracks. The first was part of a long studio jam that originated as an outtake from the Raw Power recording sessions, and was titled “Doojiman” because of its island jungle vibe. The second version of “Head On” originated in 1973, when Iggy and the Stooges were holed up at CBS Studios in New York City , rehearsing for their upcoming gig at Max’s Kansas City in advance of their U.S. tour.

The “ Georgia Peaches” set (which took its name from one of Iggy’s rants at the Southern crowd) features West Coast journeyman pianist Scott Thurston in the Stooges lineup. He was “discovered” by Williamson in Los Angeles , soon after the widely-bootlegged Whisky A GoGo engagement, when the Stooges pianist Bob Sheff (who had been in the Prime Movers with Iggy) decided to leave. Thurston stayed with the Stooges until the bitter end in ’74.



LEGACY EDITION



RAW POWER: LEGACY EDITION will include a 24-page standard CD-size booklet chronicling the evolution of Iggy and the Stooges, and the album’s creation. Two essays go into extensive detail on the history of the band, their associations with Elektra and then Columbia Records, Iggy’s recruitment into Tony DeFries’ MainMan Management stable that also included David Bowie, Mott The Hoople, and Lou Reed, the album production in London and its influence on rockers from Steve Jones (Sex Pistols), Brian James (the Damned), and Mick Jones (the Clash), to Kurt Cobain (Nirvana), Henry Rollins, and Bobby Gillespie (Primal Scream) – to name a few!

The first essay, titled “The Stooges’ Supernova Death Trip Revisited,” was written by British journalist Kris Needs, and focuses on Iggy’s sojourn in London, the Mainman situation, and his import of Williamson and then the Asheton brothers to work on the new album. Needs started running the Mott The Hoople fan club for MainMan in 1972, going on to edit original fanzine ZIGZAG between 1977-82, while writing for numerous publications from then until present, including NME, Sniffin’Glue, Creem and, most recently, MOJO and Record Collector. He has also written books on the Clash, New York Dolls and Keith Richards, among others.

The second essay in the LEGACY EDITION booklet, titled “Raw Power Got A Son Called Rock ’N’ Roll,” was written by veteran Michigan journalist Brian J. Bowe, who has written extensively about the Stooges. He focuses on the American side of things – the Stooges origins in Detroit , Ann Arbor , and New York City ; their return to the U.S. after recording in London ; Richards in Atlanta ; and a coda that brings the story full circle to 2010.

The LEGACY EDITION booklet also includes personal introductions written by survivors Iggy Pop, Scott Asheton, and James Williamson (who returned to the lineup after Ron’s death on January 6, 2009). They continue to tour as Iggy and the Stooges, with bassist Mike Watt (formerly of the Minutemen and Columbia group fIREHOSE) and saxophonist Steve Mackay.



DELUXE EDITION



As explained, RAW POWER: DELUXE EDITION will include the same discs one and two. And then the fun begins. Disc three, titled Rarities, Outtakes, & Alternates from the Raw Power Era, comprises eight tracks from various sources, five of which are previously unreleased. Two of these are outtakes from the Raw Power sessions, songs that do not appear anywhere else in the Stooges canon: “I’m Hungry” (which evolved into “Penetration”) and “Hey, Peter” (the latter conce pt ually unrelated to anything on Raw Power).

Two songs are from an early aborted Raw Power session, “I Got A Right” (which became an Iggy and the Stooges staple and has been covered by dozens of bands) and “I’m Sick Of You” (another staple, whose version here was previously issued on a rare Bomp EP in 1977). Two more tracks are Iggy’s “violent” alternate mixes of “Gimme Danger” and “Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell,” from the 1997 Columbia/Legacy Raw Power reissue.

Background on two more tracks: Raw Power was cut from the Columbia U.S. catalog within a year or so after its release, but had reappeared on the CBS UK budget-line Embassy Records line, “by popular demand” of Brits at the dawn of the punk rock era. Matheu began importing copies to the Peaches record store he managed in Detroit . He immediately noticed the Embassy LP and cassette mixes of “Raw Power” and “Search And Destroy” were different than the U.S. mixes he knew.

Three decades later, Matheu informed Dickinson of the Embassy issue, and Dickinson contacted Richard Bowe at the Sony UK archive. They were able to find the original tapes – now known as the Embassy Reels – which did, indeed, have different codes and matrix numbers on them. As Dickinson began transcribing the Embassy Reels, it wasn’t just “Raw Power” and “Search And Destroy” that were different, it was a completely alternate mix for the whole album. The alternate mixes of “Shake Appeal” and “Death Trip” on this Rarities CD are some of the fruits of that search.

Disc four of the DELUXE EDITION is a new 30-minute documentary DVD, The Making Of Raw Power, pro­duced and directed by Morgan Neville. It will include interviews with Iggy Pop, James William­son, Scott Asheton, Mike Watt, Johnny Marr, and Henry Rollins, plus electrifying performance footage of James Williamson’s first performance with Iggy and the Stooges in 30 years (!) at Festival Planeta Terra in São Paulo , Brazil , November 2009. Neville has worked – as producer, executive producer, director, writer – on a score of document­aries for television over the last 15 years, among them: Johnny Cash's America (2008), The Night James Brown Saved Boston (2008), Respect Yourself: The Stax Records Story (2007), Hank Williams: Honky Tonk Blues (2004), Muddy Waters Can't Be Satisfied (2003), Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock'n'Roll (2000), Brian Wilson: A Beach Boy's Tale (1999), Nat King Cole: Loved in Return (1998), and many others.

The final audio element of the DELUXE EDITION is a faithful reproduction of a rare Japanese picture-sleeve 45 rpm single, “Raw Power” b/w “Search And Destroy.” The U.S. single was “Search And Destroy” b/w “Penetration,” and Dickin­son found single mixes with different eq’s for all three songs in the Sony vaults. White label promo copies of the U.S. 45 are widely found, but original copies of the Japanese pic sleeve single can command hundreds of dollars at auction.

Adding to the DELUXE EDITION is the stunning 48-page softcover 7-inch square book that accompanies the box set. In addition to the same two essays and introductions that appear in the LEGACY EDITION booklet, the box set book adds a new 1100-word essay by Henry Rollins, as well as testimonials about the enduring legacy of Raw Power from Lou Reed, Joan Jett, Tom Morello, Cheetah Chrome (Dead Boys), Hugo Burnham (Gang of Four), Jim Reid (Jesus & Mary Chain) and more. The book’s essence, however, is the wealth of photography inside – from the collections of Mick Rock and Robert Matheu, among others. Also included in the box set are five exquisitely printed 5x7-inch photographs, suitable for framing.

“Raw Power,” writes James Williamson, “was the confluence of the Stooges’ ages, hormones, creativity, ability, experience, tastes, lack of supervision, contem pt for authority and ambition to achieve our rock dreams however unrealistic they might be. The songs from Raw Power were written from deep within our souls and were played with a meaningfulness and authenticity which is rarely ca pt ured on record.”

cool - I wonder how much it will cost..

Does anybody own the 70ies UK "Embassy Records" reissue?
How great are the differences from the usual Bowie mix?

And I really hope Mark Wilder does a decent job in remastering not only hardlimiting
the audio as it is often done for "remasters" to just make it louder.

This all sounds terrific, though at the risk of sounding like I'm whingeing, and I'm really not, I wonder why two tracks from the Iggy 'violent' mix are being included when that album will also remain in print? Would have made more sense to have included more of the very rare 'Embassy' mixes surely?
And, in order to complete the set, why aren't "Tight Pants", "Gimme Some Skin" and "Scene Of The Crime" included along with "Right" and "Sick"? There's plenty of room on the rarities disc for these songs.
Still it will be cool to have the Bowie mix is pristine form finally, and the Atlanta set, from the soundboard, will be a treat.
Interesting that it's claimed that edited parts of this show have been bootlegged for years. I don't think I've heard any of the 'most widely bootlegged shards' from this gig before. Which I'm very pleased about - a brand new 1973 concert, in good quality is something I wouldn't have thought was possible!
Better start saving up now...
Cheers,
Richard

Very true. I'll have to get the Deluxe edition though! There better not be any unreleased stuff they've left off this, that they're hanging on to.

Do you think we'll see a whole Embassy Mix CD sometime soon, or am I being too cynical?

I think the major clue is that the project was "overseen by Iggy himself". He obviously still likes the mix he did of Raw Power and wanted to include a representative sample on this new edition.

With regard to the missing songs, I agree it would have been nice to include them but possibly Iggy figured they were widely available anyway on Bomp releases, so chose only to include a couple of them. According to the sleeve notes 'I Got A Right' is an unreleased version anyway.

Are Sony holding anything back? Well, we know from the sleevenotes that several different mixes have not been included on this latest release, plus there are the 4 WABX mixes (although perhaps Sony do not have them in sufficient sound quality). Then there is the tape thet 'Doojiman' must have been taken from. There is probably more. It is possible that some of this material may be released as bonus tracks on future releases or compilations, but for this release Iggy has chosen quality over quantity.

Roll on April !!
