An unforgettable primal classic
Iggy And The Stooges - Raw Power

The prepartum punk album par excellence, ‘Raw Power’ has been re-released in Legacy and Deluxe Editions packed with extras; including the original Bowie mix, a disc of the ‘Georgia Peaches’ show and unreleased bonus tracks.

Healthy disrespect for authority sprinkled with testosterone fuelled posturing makes this libidinous third outing for The Stooges an unforgettable primal classic with a bang-on Mick Rock sleeve.

First spewed forth in 1973 this blend of Iggy’s guttural moanings and James Williamson’s precise spiky guitars is rightly regarded as one of the most seminal, ferocious, uncompromising, crude, sleazy, nihilistic rock albums of all time.
