- This guy's other writings are equally brilliant but this one about our Stooges from 2019 is UNREAL: A must read for all Stooges fans:
It is well-written, but there are sloppy errors when he talks about Metallic KO. First of all, he writes: "Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!" Iggy can be heard jarring the crowd on vinyl with a haunted shriek, followed by shouts from the few scant faithful and howls from the vengeful Scorpions.
But these Iggy vocals are from the 1973 gig (side one) of the album, and the Scorpions were not present at the show.
Elsewhere, the author states of the album: "This slab of otherworldly vinyl came out in 1976 and was overseen and mixed by Iggy and James"
In fact, Marc Zermati (Skydog Records) obtained permission to release the album from James (without Iggy's knowledge) after Iggy had refused. This has been confirmed in interviews by Iggy himself.
It still needs to be confirmed that the album was 'mixed' at all. There are tell-tale signs that the 1974 portion (side two) was taken from a standard soundboard tape, despite the story that it was mixed down from a 4-track recording. We really need Michael Tipton to tell the definitive story on this one!
