There was a big progression in playing ability and songwriting in the year between "The Stooges" and "Fun House"!

that's the received wisdom ... yes I suppose it's self-evident ... and of course the band said it themselves too. But the overall impact was somewhat lessened for me...and from Fun House to Raw Power it definitely decreased. Still, I don't mean to take anything away from ANY stage of the band in saying this. Just my preferences Smile
I'm not sure why I didn't feel the need to get this boxset..and I'm sure I'll regret it hugely when it comes through and everyone starts talking about it!

Not intending to take anything away from the first album! Just saying that Ron, Scott and Dave all increased the scope of their playing abilities between the 2 albums. My personal favourite is "Fun House," but what I play the most is my mix album that alternates songs between "The Stooges" and "Fun House." Listening Heaven.

Sorry guys. bad news. they are not shipping today, I emailed easyaction to make sure everything was cool, sadly there was another mistake, he said this time is was EA's fault. But he said the are close because only 200 copies were made up. So hopefully this will be a quick fix. and hopefully will ship out Mid-way of next week ... ? Keep hangin in here guys, they are VERY close

Probably makes no difference as there's another 3 day postal strike here in London so they probably couldn't post until Wednesday anyway.

are you serious JLTS? you have to be kidding lol

fortunately for EA im actually laughing

theres a thread about the 'holy grail' of stooges recordings, and i think most people agreed it was like the early 1968/69 stuff live or la scala kings cross gig, i think its the 1971 boxset, seems impossible to get a hold of!

thanks for the update JLTS

I got a note from EA yesterday in response to a postage inquiry I made that mentioned that they are making a change to the packaging...here's an excerpt from that email:

"Our production guy has seen a finished one and says it looks fantastic although they are changing the board thickness as the weight of the contents is too much for the board we have chosen so more delay for a few days im afraid but we have the finishing line in sight now !! "

This all seems a bit unprofessional to me. I'll bet they didn't even have anything printed up until they received a certain amount of pre-orders.

is this people who are going to resell it once they have it or are they listed as new?

also, if it is new on amazon maybe they werent selling enough and needed to put it up on amazon, not everyone will have heard of thestooges1971.com

i fact, i only heard through the forum

is there any danger of someone in the know posting in this thread? I'd just like to know if it's been sent out or not yet, and if not, when the current release date is. It's not too much to ask to take five minutes to post that on a forum of rabid stooges fans, is it? I can accept that things can/have go wrong, however it would be nice to be kepy up to date with them, rather than left hanging.

I've not been on here for a while as my computer at home is broken. The date on the website indicates that we should be getting our boxsets soon, so are we?
