First released on Columbia Records in 1973, the savagely bombastic RAW POWER by Iggy & the Stooges is perhaps the first record that could truly be called punk. It was the confluence of the Stooges’ ages, hormones, creativity, ability, experience, tastes, lack of supervision, contempt for authority, and ambition that has made RAW POWER one of the most influential albums of all time.
 
RAW POWER DELUXE EDITION captures the band at the peak of their destructive genius. Rarely does band, material, time and circumstance come together like it does on RAW POWER. RAW POWER DELUXE EDITION is the ultimate tribute to one of the greatest albums of all time and now includes: 15 previously unreleased 1972-1973 bonus tracks over 3 audio discs; a brand-new DVD documentary telling the unlikely story of the fall and rise of RAW POWER, featuring new interviews with the Stooges, Johnny Marr, Chrissie Hynde and more, plus never-before-seen 1973 concert footage; a 48-page softcover book chockfull of previously unseen photos by Mick Rock, Robert Matheu and others, essays by Henry Rollins, Kris Needs and Brian J. Bowe, testimonials from Stooges fans like Tom Morello, Lou Reed, Slash, Jim Jarmusch, Joan Jett, Perry Farrell, Cheetah Chrome and more; five 5’x7’ photo prints including an exclusive print by Shepard Fairey; and a 1973 Japanese pic-sleeve 45 single repro of “Raw Power” and “Search And Destroy.”
 
RAW POWER: The band couldn’t follow it up. The band barely survived it.
