Nearly 45 year since the initial recording sessions began in the summer of 1972, the controversy surrounding Raw Power has never abated and has only added to the album's mythic status. First released on Columbia records in 1973, the savagely bombastic Raw Power by Iggy and the Stooges is perhaps the first record that could truly be called punk. Produced by Iggy Pop and mixed by David Bowie, 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. Like a lot of albums ahead of their time, upon initial release Raw Power was embraced by the forward thinking 'disenfranchised youth' world-wide - the punks in training, rather than the mass pop culture. Raw power, the album that almost single-handedly detonated the punk-rock movement in the next few years after its release - became the album against which all others were measured, where it remains to this day.
