The Stooges - 1969
This was a 2009 record store day re-release from Rhino/Elektra. It's hard to believe this stuff is over 40 years old. You just don't associate "menacing" with 60's music. "1969" is solid, with its Bo-Diddley beat backing up Iggy's boredom, but I'd really love to track down a 7" of their "1970". That song rocks. They had a theme going. Rhino re-released that recently too, by the look of things. Hmmm. Might have to track that down.
"Real Cool Time" was written and recorded in an evening after the label told the Stooges that their planned debut record was too short. It's a filler track soaked in wah pedal.
