Format: Audio CD
There are many cd and vinyl collections representing the material Iggy Pop created with James Williamson in the first half of the seventies. Aside from the two very different mixes of "Raw Power", now both available on Sony/BMG cds, there are albums consisting of Stooges demos, Stooges rehearsals, "Raw Power" rough mixes, "Kill City" (credited to Pop and Williamson) and various combinations. In the seventies there were EPs (for the benefit of the under-40s, extended play 7" records) on Bomp records, and a French 7" single, very popular import items in my youth.
This album is a very selective trawl of all the unofficial categories above. Most of the items on this album appear in about the best sound quality I have ever heard them. Just bear in mind that we are talking about relatively casual recordings here. The selection is far less exhaustive than some of the two-disc selections, but they tend to suffer lesser sound quality, and frankly diminishing artistic returns on the greater number of tracks. I have a few of them, and frankly they never leave their cases/sleeves. This single cd really DOES have the best of them at a truly budget price (£3.93 on this site). It's the only one I ever play.
So what do we get? The first three tracks were originally released as the "Sick of You" EP, culled from studio-recorded demos. "Sick of you" does the old slow-fast-slow trick. Sasquatch-in-Essex said in his review that this is worth the price of the cd alone. He is right. Iggy starts out as a yowling crooner, screaming and yelling when the pace doubles. After some brief guitar squalling from Williamson, the song returns to the way it began. This song, better developed, would have made a great inclusion on "Raw Power".

A bit disappointing. Tracks 1-3 were recorded in 1973, and 'I'm Sick Of You' and 'Tight Pants' (early version of 'Shake Appeal') are excellent. These tracks have energy and verve, and one can sense the 'Raw Power' album evolving in these sessions. However, tracks 4-11 ("recorded LA 1975") are pretty half-baked. These were never great songs compared to those on the first three studio albums, and the playing lacks cohesion. As for tracks 12-18, the sound quality is poor, barely worth putting on a CD. The recording of 'Raw Power' is described as a 'rough version' - yes. The singing is barely recognisable as Iggy's.

Stooges die-hards will probably like this well enough, and it is not a bad purchase in terms of value for money, but I would not recommend it strongly. Legendary band, absolutely, but (tracks 1-3 excepted) this is a pretty patchy offering compared to the classic studio albums that preceded it. If you are looking for a first Stooges record, I suggest you start with 'The Stooges'.

These recordings were made in 1973 after the Stooges re-formed (following encouragement from David Bowie) as Iggy and the Stooges. Original Stooges guitarist Ron Ashton moved to bass to fill the gap left by the late Dave Alexander, and James Williamson was brought in to add his brand of incendry lead guitar. Scott Ashton remained on drums, and, of course, Iggy Pop still lead the band.

The majority of these songs were originally released in the late seventies on a variety of obscure EPs and singles on cult record labels such as Bomp, and now appear together on one CD. Which is great news for Stooges fans. Also included are demo versions of some of the songs from the 'Raw Power' album and three songs that eventually appeared on the Iggy Pop and James Williamson album 'Kill City'.

This collection is an essential companion to the band's three legendry major label album releases - 'The Stooges' (1969), 'Funhouse' (1970) and the Bowie produced 'Raw Power' (1973). The song 'Sick of You' is worth the entrance money alone.

If you have the first three Stooges album and you liked them then this album is for you.

My personnel choice has to be Jesus loves the Stooges. (The last track on the album)

I would say that you do need to buy the first three albums before you buy this.

Best Compilation of The Stooges Lost Sessions 13 April 2006
By A. Woodley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I have spent a lot of time and a ton of money on CDs of the Stooges "lost" sessions. I was very hesitant to even buy this CD because I have spent so much money and purchased so many of the Stooges "lost" sessions on which the quality of the recordings were horrible. This CD is the complete opposite though. The recording quality is good, not perfect but the best I have ever heard of this material, and if your looking at this review, you know how good the material is. Buy this CD and don't waist your time buying other CDs that lack the quality.

Worthless cash-in 30 Jan. 2005
By Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This has been thrown together to try and capture any new Stooges fans entering the mix but has missed the mark by so far that it is ridiculous.

Of course the actual music here is good but that's not the point. All of this stuff has been released and re-released a million times and anyone who is into the band deep enough won't fall for this.

This was clearly compiled by someone who knew nothing about The Stooges or Iggy Pop and wants a cash-in.

Basically they have taken Iggy's solo album Kill City (made in-between Stooges and his proper solo debut), jumbled up the order and thrown that in (and taken out a track or two).

Then they took 3 of the Raw Power demos and put them in. They could have put in Scene of The Crime and Tight Pants and it at least would have been the first cd to have all 5 on the one disc but they haven't. Then some rough rehearsals we've heard before and that's it.

Lastly there is the cover which is a mockery. Iggy Pop and The Stooges are seperate things!

If you want a true "best of" covering the rehearsal material et al., then "Year of the Iguana" by the Bomp! label is far better although I must say there is still room for another one to come along and definitively cover the lot though. For now it's up to you to work your way through the good and the bad, and I'm telling you this is one of the bad ones.
