That said, by the time Iggy and the Stooges recorded what would become 'Raw Power' in 1972, the band was in disrepair and their popularity waning. With his own influence rising, management thought it would be a grand idea to have Bowie produce the album. Pop thought otherwise. In the end, Bowie was hired to handle the mix. Bowie being Bowie, he wanted to emboss the sound with his own creative stamp, thinking some of Ziggy's "stardust" might wear off on it. The result captured the rawness that the album's title calls upon, but remains a point of contention with Stooges fans, as well as with the band themselves. A re-remixed version of the album was eventually released.
And now, an expanded Legacy Edition of 'Raw Power' drops on April 13 that brings Bowie's mix back -- remastered, of course -- and adds a bonus CD featuring a live set from 1973. But the super-sized version -- aka the Deluxe Edition, available only online through the Stooges' official website -- features all the real bells and whistles, including a revealing DVD documentary.
Check out the following clip from the DVD. Is Iggy actually mocking Bowie, in good friendly fun? Kinda. You're gonna want to watch this. Now.
