The Stooges: You Want My Action


Today, Iggy Pop is best known as that funny old man in the Swiftcover advert, but in the early 1970s, his group, the Stooges, sculpted alternative rock’s signature sounds. Here’s a beautifully packaged four-CD set of poorly recorded spring 1971 dates that are nonetheless audibly amazing. A short-lived quintet with two guitarists, Ron Asheton and his subsequent replacement, James Williamson, rage furiously behind a largely inaudible and surely uninsurable Pop. Of the six-song set, all but I Got a Right disappeared somewhere between the Fun House and Raw Power albums, but Big Time Bum invents American hardcore punk 10 years early and the swaggering You Don’t Want My Name, You Want My Action should make Williamson’s and Pop’s 2010 reunion set.

Holy shit can't believe it gets such a good review, I mean we know it deserves it. I'm just surprised!

I don't know about the "funny old man" part. I 've always thought Iggy has aged rather gracefully and seems to have more energy than men half his age. Besides that, it is great to see the mainstream finally giving one of the greatest rock bands America has ever and probably will ever produce their due. Maybe the record industry will sit up & take notice of and honor the greatness that they have for so very long dismissed while embracing pretenders to the throne.

Yeah, Really? If he had just left that entire line out of the review and added another star it would have been perfect.

ElRoi, Iggy's great but he's not aged gracefully by any means I don't think he even accepts he's 60. Still glad the review was so positive.

Well, I just hope I have as much energy as he seems to have when I'm his age.
