The Stooges (John Cale Mix)

The Stooges
Why you'll love it...

The original punk album, The Stooges is a Molotov cocktail delivered straight to the faces of the hippies of 1969, an album made by Michigan goons who were sick of everything, and wanted to be your dog. The album marked the arrival of Iggy Pop, one of the last true rock ‘n’ roll iconoclasts, and though the album was considered an historic bomb upon its release—it never cracked the top 100—it influenced basically every glam, punk and post-punk album released in its considerable wake. 

The album’s original mix by producer John Cale was infamously rejected by Elektra Records—they thought it sounded too abrasive—and it has never appeared on vinyl. Until now. A new way to hear a classic album, this version is presented in the way that John Cale originally intended.
