“You gotta have Raw Power” – Henry Rollins of Black Flag

When an album influences an entire movement, the way Iggy and the Stooges’ Raw Power did for punk rock, it takes a whole lot to make it better. Fortunately, that’s just what is happening on April 13th and April 27th; Raw Power is being re-released with bigger, better, and more bad ass versions, the Legacy Edition (4/13 release) and the Deluxe Edition (4/27 release).

Two re-workings of the classic album, originally produced by Iggy and mixed by David Bowie, will hit store shelves in a double-disc format with a load of previously unreleased recordings from the band’s Raw Power “era” of 1972-73. Along with the never before released audio tracks comes disc two, titled “Georgia Peaches,” a one-hour performance at Atlanta’s notorious rock club Richards in October 1973.

On April 13th, the double-disc RAW POWER: LEGACY EDITION, and following the Legacy Edition by two weeks, RAW POWER: DELUXE EDITION — a fully-packed 7-inch square slipcase box set containing three audio CDs, a DVD docu­mentary, a 48-page book, five 5×7-inch prints, and a bonus 7-inch 45 rpm picture sleeve single – will be released exclusively through www.iggyandthestoogesmusic.com. Pre-orders are being taken now in advance of the April 27th release date.

Both the DELUXE EDITION and LEGACY EDITION are produced by Iggy Pop, Bruce Dickinson, and Robert Matheu. Dickinson is a 15-year Legacy veteran who has produced projects for the company ranging from Cheap Trick, the Clash and Bob Dylan, to John Cale, Mott The Hoople, Peter Tosh, Patti Smith, Blue Öyster Cult, and dozens of others.

To commemorate the legacy reissue of their seminal 1973 album, Iggy and the Stooges have unveiled a new EPK which features the band and members of the punk scene which the album influenced (Henry Rollins, Johnny Marr, Chrissie Hynde) talking about the making of and legacy of the album. “It was one of those records that everyone had. Of course you had the first Sex Pistols, and Clash albums. But you had to have Raw Power,” recalls Henry Rollins. When talking about the band’s attitude, singer Iggy Pop mentions, “I thought the only way we were going to survive as a force, was to be on the absolute modern edge of what was going on.”

The breakdown of what’s included with each edition is;
