It does exist two versions of it too. Not too good, not too bad in my humble opinion.

Whatever your views on the quality of the song itself - personally i think it's great - you have to admit that both versions sound terrific, a really full, powerful sound from the Stooges. THIS is indeed what I hoped The Weirdness would have sounded like - it would have been a far more enjoyable album...
Cheers,
Richard

I'd like to hear both versions. What I've heard on here doesn't sound much different to most of The Weirdness. Quite good sound, but not terribly inspired.

Yeah, nothing better then hearing some old guy talking about raping some young girl. Maybe if you could delete the vocals.

It's hard to believe anyone missed these considering they were new Stooges recordings but they are both great. If only the Weirdness had sounded half this good. Actually Sunday Nights is a pretty good album altogether. There's even a Whitey Kirst track on it for those of you that like him.

Some info about the song:
You Better Run,

The song was written by a great late blues legend Junior Kimbrough, He was black, fat, old blues badass from Missisippi, Iggy was a huge fan of Junior's music and he even used to tour the states with Junior. You can find the orginal version on Junior Kimbrough's album "All Night Long" - the orginal version is lot slower..but really dirty. In fact I like the orginal version lot more...

"You Better Run" was the the first Stooges song to feature Mike Watt,
The song is all so available on the Fat Possum blues collection "Not The Same Old Blues Crap. Check out : fatpossum.com - for information.

Iggy appears in the Fat Possum documentary movie called " You See Me Laughin - The Last of The Hillycountry Blues Men" with Junior Kimbrough.

There's a great quotes from Iggy on that film: " He (junior) used to joke a lot, He said to me: "Boy, How long have you been in the music biz ?" I said "Oh, 30 years!" Junior laughed at me and said " boy , that's nothing"

Junior was 75 years old and he started playing the blues when he was 5 years old... The lyrics on the song are really dirty and funny" but Junior was really dirty, sleazy hard drinking blues guy himself..he died of heart failure due to his drinkin...

Another quote from Iggy in the film: - "At one point he (Junior) said to me, when we get to Chicago, I'm gonna get me some pussy, and I can get some pussy for you too..!"
Bono from U2 appears in the film too, Bono was Junior Kimbrough fan too but he says that Kimbrough scared him:

Quote from Bono: " He (Junior) was singin " I'm gonna rape you, I know that's what you want" ..and all of a sudden I thought, Oh my god - what am I doing here, This guy means business! Junior didn't know who I was, so they tried to tell him " Hey Junior, This is Bono from U2, ...and Junior just laughed at me and said U2 - Me-2 Hahhah and walked away...I might be a big shot in some college but in Juniors eyes, I wasn't worth a drink"

Junior used to call Iggy with a nickname "Lollipop." too

Lots of information, thank you.
I don't know how I missed out on it before but then my ignorance is pretty astonishing sometimes!
don't think I'll ever love this song but it's ok.

The Cd "Not the same old blues crap" is vol3 and only contains the shorter and faster version, not both.

I know that lyrics in "You better Run" are rather sick, but I think Junior meant it as joke...anyway, If you wanna hear Junior Kimbrough's music, Do yourself a favour:
This is great, primitive, ass kicking blues record, I bought it and I love it:
The Junior Kimbrough "greatest hits" collection...Check out the link:
