Vinyl document of the reformed Stooges' (Iggy Pop, Scott Asheton, James Williamson, Steve Mackay, Mike Watt) Raw Power performance at All Tomorrows Parties in Sept 2010. A mindblowing night for sure. Iggy and the band sound flawless as they rip through the archetype riffage of ""Search and Destroy,"" ""Raw Power,"" ""Gimmie Danger"" and more. Punk rock, no doubt. ""Getting this top-notch performance of the entire Raw Power album by The Stooges realized a life long dream. This **** really sizzles and we are so obviously a crack band in a class of our own."" -Iggy Pop

I love this LP! If you're fan of Raw Power than you must own this - these guys rock harder than bands thirty years their junior. I agree with another reviewer that a digital download card would have been a nice touch for those of us who like to take music with us everywhere we go, but that shouldn't dissuade anyone from purchasing. I can't recommend this release highly enough and I really hope this line-up records new material together. I would also welcome another live release as they have played some songs from Kill City and some of Iggy's early solo material at other shows, which would make for a great release.
This live performance took place on September 3, 2010 at the All Tomorrow's Parties Festival. Don't you just LOVE it when bands as such goes out on tour and plays what is currently known as a 'retrospect' show. That's when a long-running ensemble decides to perform a classic album in it's entirety. As Iggy & The Stooges plays the whole 'Raw Power' opus here plus "I Got A Right". I mean - what true Stooges fan could possibly ask for more? Sound quality is gret - but do keep in mind that this title is available on vinyl lp and download only. No CD release - but MVD will soon put out a DVD of the same title. I haven't heard an actual lp in awhile now. Regardless, it was a blast to thoroughly soak in the total ass-kicking "Raw Power", the apocalyptic "Search And Destroy", the (almost, at times) humorous "Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell", "Death Trap" and a couple of other Stooges deep lp cuts they don't exactly play every show. Every bit as power-packed as the Iggy & The Stooges -...
This is an amazing document. They absolutely tore through this set at ATP NY 2010, and the recording is fantastic. ATP and artists should release more of these sets, I know they're all recorded (Bob Mould's set at ATPNY also came out great on CD). One complaint (and it's minor), they did play "Fun House" and it would have been nice if they had included that, or if they would include a download coupon with the full set available digitally if it won't fit on the vinyl.
All in all though, this is a real gem. Just make sure you play it loud.
