5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant re-mastering... 29 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
...but be advised that this is NOT a remaster of the double-CD set that most owners know and love. This is just the first CD.

That said though, getting this is a no-brainer: along with remastering the sound, they have fixed the original incorrect pitch of the original releases, and the result sounds sharper, more "alive" and energetic than ever before.

Basically, the audience's yells, taunts and flying glass sound clearer, and the music itself sounds tighter and more tuneful. Which is, considering the history of these recordings, truly remarkable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great sound... odd choice for re-release 28 Nov 2007
By Charles Miller - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this because it was discovered that the original album was incorrectly pitched and the record company that owns the tapes declared that they fixed up the sound. Indeed they did. Never has Metallic KO sounded as good as it does here. The overly heavy artificial-sounding bass in previous incarnations is gone while Scott Asheton's drumming and Scott Thurston's piano come through loud and clear. Even with the bass reduction, Ron Asheton's playing sounds correct too and is not buried in the mix. Perhaps of most importance, Iggy Pop sounds more like Iggy Pop. After listening to this new release, it is quite obvious that the pitch of the vocals was previously incorrect.

My question is, why re-release the original LP version of Metallic KO, (which only featured 3 songs from the "Last Ever Stooges Show" on February 9, 1974 and filled out with another 3 tracks from an October 6, 1973 concert), instead of both shows in their entirety owned by the same record company? Why not clean up the complete 2-CD set version instead of the half shows available on the original LP?

On the other side of the coin, the original album, albeit excerpts from two shows, was great as it was and certainly the version old-time Stooges fans are most familiar with. To have it again sounding this good makes buying Metallic KO yet again a worthy expenditure. Is there such a thing as too much Stooges? Collect 'em all!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Knockout of The Stooges 3 Sep 2008
By Best Of All - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Crazed, disturbing and hilarious, this infamous live "bootleg" has had enormous staying power since being available as an import album more than 30 years ago.

The two concerts chronicled - October 1973 and the band's final gig in February 1974 - is a sonic depiction of The Stooges imploding due to any number of issues, with Iggy's personal demons taking center stage.

Iggy was taking performance art to the extreme in the closing months with The Stooges. And when control is totally lost and Iggy is baiting the riotous crowd to throw more ice, eggs, beer bottles and jelly beans, the band limps along with background noise, sounding the closing chords for a wild ride that had gone disastrously wrong.

It needs to be heard to be believed.

5.0 out of 5 stars HEAD ON! 20 Jun 2008
By Woodrow - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Worth getting for the version of Head On here alone, but get the 2CD version. More is always better, especially when it comes to the Stooges.

Check out Mighty High...In Drug City.

5.0 out of 5 stars Metallic KO is Pure Madness, Anarchy, & Fun 15 April 2008
By Midas Wilder - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Iggy and the Stooges blaze through these legendary tracks (in prime "stooge" form)...sputtering, antagonizing, blasting, all while keeping everyone on edge with their unpredictable theatrics and sludgy punk rock. 'Gimme Danger' is my favorite Metallic KO track, and I'll often play it more than once in a sitting. If you're building a Stooges 5-disk 'master' be sure to include Metallic KO in the lot. Also consider the Stooges (self-titled debut), Funhouse, Live 1971 & Other Rarities, and Rough Power (Bomp Records).

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars but they left 2 songs 29 Nov 2009
By My name is Mike - Published on
Format:Audio CD
if your familiar with this album theres two shows I think
one is now on Bomp records with the sound fixed by I guess Willamson ( welcome back by the way ) called Michigan 10/6/73
The other part is supposedly the last show in 1974 but it actually starts or
cuts in with New Orleans although Jungle titled it Heavy Liquid maybe its the same song I forget and then I got nothing because they sound like they are from the same soundboard recording...why...its the best soundboard bootleg the stooges ever made.
its very clean and clear. These are left off this new re release of Metallic KO
It starts with 3 tunes that don't sound like the other tracks with a big difference
the other stooges live stuff sounds like it was recorded with a mic in the room
I collected so many Stooges boots over the years Im losing track.
Theres the 73 shows the 73 rehearsal songs in Detroit and 3 versions of Raw Power Stooges first mix Bowie's Iggy's. Unfortunately there isn't much live material from 69 or 70
but some great footage out there. I still havent heard a show from that era. But The funhouse sessions from Rhino is the most insane complete box set I still havent absorbed it.
