This review is for the initial CD release of Raw Power on Columbia (COL 476610), featuring the original mix created by David Bowie in late 1972.

I'll begin with a brief note about mastering. Unlike the remix produced by Iggy Pop in the 1990s, this CD maintains the dynamics of the original recording. It's not brickwalled or clipped, suffering none of the sonic damage inherent to the "loudness War". If it wasn't for the whacked-out production seeing James Williamson's screeching lead guitar leaping wildly and unexpectedly to the fore it'd be a great album to crank up loud.

I first discovered Raw Power in 1988. At the time it was considered something of a forgotten underground classic of Punk Rock, not known or appreciated in the mainstream and almost impossible to find on the shelves of record shops. It was very much an album which only those "in the know" knew about. I had to specially order a copy, which took two months to arrive.

In those pre-Internet days The Stooges were a band who tended only to appear as a footnote in the very few Punk books available. That lack of information fuelled a mystique of sleaze, mindless noise and depravity. Within that context Raw Power was always referenced as THE album having those elements by the bucketload.

So the first time I played Raw Power I found myself hugely disappointed. I was coming to it from the direction of 1970s Punk and expected to hear something which would seriously challenge, or put to shame, the wall of noise common to that genre. However there was no such comparison. This album just sounded thin, weak, aneamic.

It was to be at least another 20 years before that original mix of Raw Power finally clicked with me.
