If there’s ever been an album that lives up to its title, this is it—Iggy and the Stooges’ apocalyptic, high-octane bombshell, Raw Power! At times this searing, end-of-the-world death platter—home to such proto-punk frontal assaults as “Search and Destroy,” “Shake Appeal,” and “Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell”—even threatens to surpass its beyond-appropriate moniker.
Although this incarnation of the Stooges imploded not long after its release, Raw Power became the LP that launched a million punk rock bands all around the world, leaving its flaming skidmarks on scenes from London to L.A. to Sydney. Sundazed’s high-definition vinyl edition of this primal rock ’n’ roll beast features the legendary 1973 Columbia Records mix and includes its Mick Rock photo-adorned inner sleeve.
