well bomp, and easy action on the first disc of heavy liquid documented the stooges working on gimme some skin and i got a right, these are the main recordings, i also have one from 1971 of the asheton/williamson guitar band, but those are the main ones, which have been remixed and stuff, like on the stooges extended play by easy action, which has two sets of vocals, a cuple seconds after the main set, but the best and most powerful, therefore most stoogelike are on a compilation set i saw on itunes called Godfathers of LA Punk, yet they were recorded in England! but get these, they are sooo good, i burnt them onto a CD and am blown away each time, it gets u so pumped up!!

Sorry, I guess some of the confusion may be down to how I worded my reply in the other thread. What I meant by the original version of "I Got A Right" is the version recorded in London as a demo pre the "Raw Power" sessions, and released on Siamese Records. I just called it the original version because it's the first version that was released. What separates this version/mix of "I Got A Right" from the others is that, like Gimme Some Skin/Scene Of The Crime/Sick Of You/Tight Pants, it's the bands finished demo, ie the version they thought sounded best.

There are near endless alternate takes of "I Got A Right" from the same sessions, some released a few years ago on a Bomp label cd that I don't have to hand, and others in the "Heavy Liquid" cd box-set that came out a while back ( there's also at least one live version, released on the "Live 1971" album ).

Re "Gimme Some Skin", as far as I'm aware, and I could be wrong, there's only one complete take circulating , and that's the one originally released on the b-side of the Siamese "I Got A Right" single. It's also on the "Extended Play" cd, and in the "Heavy Liquid" box-set, along with an instrumental version. Again, it's a pre Raw Power demo recorded in London in '72.

I'm sure both these songs/versions must be available on about a dozen different cd's, but they're both on the "Siamese Dogs" cd for sure.

I Got A Right, in my opinion, is the most straight forward punk rock song the Stooges ever recorded. The solo is simply ferocious.

I prefer 'Scene of the Crime' as a straightforward punk rock song - one of the best riffs ever! (Solos matter less to me, generally)

I still maintain that if you come across anyone who has never heard of Iggy Pop or the Stooges, and you want to give them a taster, then all you need to do is play them "I Got A Right".
It's the very essence of Iggy condensed into one fantastic song.
The lyrics sum his attitude up perfectly and the music is powerful beyond belief. Short, sharp and superb.
Cheers,
Richard

this song doesn't do that much for me. as for it being a good introduction to the band - it really only shows one side of them, the overtly punk-ish side

maybe you've got a point there. But overall 'Scene of the Crime' is a better song.

No, there are some parts missing, like "sucks a man like a *** asshole" (I think it is written this way).

XXX isn't just a word, are some parts of the song.

She uses me whatever I am
She uses me and takes what is grand
- is replaced by the far cooler "She shoots speed right up her ass, she shoots speed and she smokes grass" on the Revenge twofer Kill City/I'm Sick of You CD

Some other differences: Can't fuck that up - becomes "Get Fucked Baby", Live it all out, live it all in - is "Whip it all out, whip it all in"

XXX is lyrics they couldn't work out I guess. On this one the first and last XXX is "Sex all Night" then something I can't work out.

Yeah, musically it is definately Smile I mentioned Gimme Some Skin as the most punkish song they did (in my opinion) cuz it's structure is simpler than any other from Raw Power era. Kinda spontaneous feeling Smile

"Cock in My Pocket" is also a little punkish.

I always thought that "Cock In My Pocket" was more of a straightforward old fashioned rock'n'roll song, more Chuck Berry than anything else, but then twisted, sped up and spat out again.
It's a terrific song. My old band used to play a very slow bluesy version of CIMP which was hilarious.
Cheers,
Richard
