Iggy (along with Josh Homme) stopped by Steve Jones' radio show a few days back. Interesting interview overall, but what was particularly interesting was some info he shared about the recording of Funhouse - begins around the 32:27 mark:

No problem!

Didn't know Brian Ross-Myring was so important for how Funhouse turned up sounding. Iggy doesn't even mention Don Gallucci in the clip, because it seems Ross-Myring not only was the engineer but also mixed the record.

Ron Asheton thought that Funhouse had a terrible mix. After considering this, I think he's right. The performances on Funhouse are excellent but the mix leaves you a little frustrated - leaves you wanting a little more.

But the way Funhouse was recorded I don't even know that it is possible to remix the album. My understanding is that the band was recorded live. That's why all those reams of outtakes survived. Such little tape was used to record them that Elektra bore little expense in preserving them all. So in a way the 'bust' of a bad mix was really a 'boon' with all the unreleased material that survived.

In the most recent issue of Rolling Stone they ranked the 40 Greatest Punk Albums Of All Time. Funhouse placed number 4. Ironically the album that placed number 1 is the album I would classify as the most Funhouse-influenced album of all time - the Ramones debut. Another band that I think whose sound owed a heavy debt to Funhouse, Joy Division, also placed.

Amazingly Raw Power did not register on the list. But the list was basically the 40 Greatest Punk Albums Of All Time with a quota of one album per artist. Nobody placed twice on the list.

R.I.P. Prince who was influenced by Funkadelic, who were in turn influenced by the Stooges and who Iggy used to hang out with.

Really? Dunno, in my opinion Funhouse is one of the most perfect sounding records in rock history. I wouldn't touch a note on that record, and wasn't really a fan of the re-mastered 2005 reissue either.

Raw Power on the other hand... I just wish Williamson put his hands on a remix of this, the same way he did with Ed Cherney around 2010 on Kill City - with the results being fantastic on that one imo.

Jack White had nothing to do with the remastering of Funhouse. He only wrote a tiny bit of the liner notes.
