Part of Bomp Records' Iguana Chronicles series, which pillages the vaults for Iggy & the Stooges rarities, ROUGH POWER attempts to set the record straight--or at the very least expand the discussion--regarding the Stooges' controversial third record, RAW POWER. The official 1973 release featured production work by David Bowie that, according to some, comprised the original attack of the recordings. While Iggy's own 1997 remixed version of the album is a monster in its own right, these alternate mixes from 1972 show a band at an absolutely ferocious pinnacle. Oddly enough, however, the ROUGH POWER mixes actually contain more traditionally pop elements (check out the hand claps on "Shake Appeal") than what's heard on the final Bowie mixes. The quality here is very crude and for that reason the set is best recommended for Stooges diehards, but those on board will marvel at the pure rock-&-roll eruption that was the Stooges. At their best, it's genuinely hard to imagine a more dangerous band.
