Stooges Complete Funhouse Sessions

0

I'm surprised to learn that I have never put these up before, I don't think they are terribly common......you gotta LOVE you some Stooges to be wanting this, as there are SEVEN (!) discs of rough studio work as well as a bunch of random studio chatter, "Fun House" is one of my fave albums, and to me it is of great interest to get behind the scenes of the creation of that masterpiece.....for some of you, this will be a Godsend, to others, this may sound like an excessive exercise in jibberish....both side would be correct, imo.

This is a TRUE picture of the making of  a classic album.....every mistake, every studio discussion, every EVERYTHING that went down while the Stooges were creating "Fun House" is here......it's highly unlikely that you aim to listen to this on your next long road trip, this is one of those efforts that is FAR more a scholarly/informational effort than something just to kick back to......but when it comes to my fave bands (ala the Stooges), every note is something that interests ME.

OK, dig it, this is ONLY for fans of the Stooges.....it DOCUMENTS the making of one of the great albums of the 1970's, I just want to make clear to the dabblers that this is NOT something for you to tap your toes/play "air-guitar" to, this shit is rough, and personally, I find it interesting as hell....I wish I had discs of some of my other fave albums laid out in this manner...

I'm for sure NOT gonna discuss each disc, the track lists below will explain it to you EXACTLY......but if you are a fan of the Stooges, a fan of "making the record" documentation, or even just a fan of "off-the-beaten-path" recordings, I think I would recommend this to you. There are some fine, hard rocking (fuck, it's the goddamn STOOGES shit here, and I hope that this is something that some, at least, of the minions find to be a treasure strike....as always, TELL ME what you feel about my posts....I can only make this blog what YOU want it if you give me YOUR input, and I am dead serious.....if you think this post, and posts like it, sucks, then you have no one to blame should you not tell me. Right?

One final warning: When the say "Complete", they are NOT kidding

Do you guys like this type of thing, or am I wasting my time? Is this too "scholarly", for lack of a better term? I have always liked this set, found it fascinating as hell, BUT if the readers don't, it does me no good to post stuff like this up......PLEASE comment, as you know, I want to make this blog into something that helps EVERYONE to acquire their PERFECT music collection.....if stuff like this is less interesting to YOU than it is to ME, the only way I'll know that is if you'd tell me.
