3.0 out of 5 stars Iggy Remix a mixed Success, 16 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Raw Power (Audio CD)
The item invariably offered for sale on CD is the 1997 Iggy Pop Remix of this classic 1973 Stooges album. The original Bowie mix - often characterised as 'arty' - was strange, muted, and distant. It lacked punch in the rhythm and bass, and this Iggy tried to remedy. However, as James Williamson (guitar, riffs) has pointed out, the recording levels were overloaded in this area, making the remix task difficult. Some numbers do come across quite well e.g I Need Somebody, but others, such as Search and Destroy suffer from excessive treble and clipping.
Most of the tracks are better presented on the 2004 Demon Music release, Penetration - which also benefits from the inclusion of most of the Kill City album, and tracks from the pre Raw Power era such as Sick of You, Scene of the Crime etc.
