Insane! a new go-to for me, Thank you so much!ReplyDelete
So cool! Thx very much Prof ;)ReplyDelete
File can neither be shown nor downloaded...I'm for two days now to download it.ReplyDelete
Can you please look into this?
I previously had a rip of a Canadian vinyl. It sounded really good. This one has just another level of clarity which will make it my go to version. Thanks dude!ReplyDelete
I can't thank you enough, dear Prof! This is one of my favorite albums ever. I never heard it like this: a pristine masterpiece!ReplyDelete
Nice rip, thanksReplyDelete
Wow ....Wow ... Wow !!!! So my question is "Why didn't Rhino get it sounding this good?" The clarity and frequency range is amazing .... Once again, well done Prof ! Quick question: Is this the Terre Haute, Monarch or Pitman pressing ? My money is on Monarch.ReplyDelete
Its a CTH. But remember, Elektra did all their cuttings in-house, rather than supplying production masters to the plants.ReplyDelete
Since I've heard others attempt ripping "Fun House" and not achieve the same results all I can say is " Bravo Prof." !
Most excellent! Thanks for this wonderful blog.ReplyDelete
Awesome! Thank you very much!!!ReplyDelete
Great album, great transfer! Thanks for posting.ReplyDelete
One of my Top 20 Albums! Thank you!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Professor.ReplyDelete
Another fine album.
I've been playing this every day and loving it. Now I'm curious to know what some of your other top 10 albums areReplyDelete
I agree with Wingbat. Prof's Top 10 would be an interesting list. And thank you for all these new shares! It's Christmas In J̶u̶l̶y̶ May!ReplyDelete
Just superb Prof. many thanks againReplyDelete
Very nice, thank you!ReplyDelete
Thanks Prof Stoned. Once again turning up with the goods!ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness, this is a superb rip of a fantastic LP. I'm now listening to 1970; Steven Mackay's tenor sax is stabbing at the air above a pumping rhythm section. Boom, the bottom end is amazing. Thank you Prof. Really impressive :)ReplyDelete
Really love this album! Big thanks for sharing!!!ReplyDelete
I saw the Iguanas play at the Mump and the Stooges several times in 1969 and 1970, most memorably at the Palladium (the best Stooges show imaginable, with Hari Krishna Band opening)and at Goose Lake.ReplyDelete
I have a white label promo copy of this album and I recall it had slightly more bite on the snare drum. It's now in storage and I can't play it to compare and my new system includes slightly soft headphones and my ears are about 50 years older since I last saw them live (although I got to see Ron Asheton play with Destroy All Monsters). This version definitely smokes the various CDs of this album that I previously had.
I hope you can do a rip of the 45 single "Down on the Street" with an overdubbed organ by former Kingsmen keyboardist Don Gallucci ("Louie Louie" fame) who produced the album.
Professor, your body of work is stunning and a great achievement. Thank you so much.
Thanks! I don't think the organ version appears on the orig USA single, only on a 2005 Rhino 7". Am I wrong?ReplyDelete
It is an honor to make a small contribution to your research. Wikipedia says, "An alternate version of "Down on the Street", featuring a Doors-style organ overdubbed by Gallucci, was pulled from the album and released as a single. It was released the same month as Fun House, and fared slightly better on the charts." The source cited in a footnote credits the liner notes of 1970: The Complete Fun House Sessions. I don't have that collection.ReplyDelete
Right, but I have read people who own the single report that it does not feature the organ.ReplyDelete
Thank you for looking into the report of an organ overdubbed on the 45rpm of Down on the Street. I have no reason to doubt the many people who reported that various versions of the single do no have an organ, including DJ pressings and French issues. Also thanks for the link to the Stooges fan site. All of your research is much appreciated.ReplyDelete
No prob. I have the 2005 single but since it appears on the CD boxset, it's probably the exact same source.ReplyDelete
50th anniversary of this amazing record. Thank you for sharing.ReplyDelete
Great to have a HQ rip from a pristine original vinyl source of this all-time favourite...ThanksReplyDelete
Thanks for this kickass rip! You Da Man! :)ReplyDelete
Thank you awesome job!ReplyDelete
Most excellent - many thanks for thisReplyDelete
I totally join 'Noises From Apt2A' and what he wrote on 18th of April. I mean, I was just blown away. I got the record in various forms since 15 years now and never ever got it to such a experience. I bow down, dude, I'm serious. Extra-superiour ✌🏻🌞ReplyDelete
Happy New Year and thanks for all you doReplyDelete
much appreciated --thank you !ReplyDelete
This is an incredible rip of maybe my favourite record of all time. I have a great sounding early French pressing of this in storage, but rarely have the chance to spin it, so this will do nicely. As for the question of organ on the single, I still don't believe anyone's found an actual vinyl copy with the organ on it, so I believe it was a mistake made when compiling the box set to include it as a 'single mix', rather than a 'rejected mix'.ReplyDelete
This sound so good! Now the first album of The Stooges! Please!ReplyDelete
Thank you! Please tell your ears I love them.ReplyDelete
Excellent sound! Thanks!!ReplyDelete
Thank you very much!ReplyDelete
