To me, the Iggy mix has a bigger sound, but lacks a little bit of clarity in the vocals. It's like filling your room with bass and static in a good way. Bass and guitar swirling around your head and reverberating endlessly, while Iggy's voice scratches its way through.

The Bowie mix, alternatively, has a clearer and more defined separation, but comes with a timidness that takes me out of the listening experience often. The sound sometimes comes and goes, and seems unsure of itself, which doesn't match the content of this bold album for me.

It's all personal opinion, and I'll probably end up listening to the Iggy mix more often, nice to have the option though!

Just picked up this release lately. Absolutely wonderful and couldn't be happier with it. The 1997 mix sounds wonderful on vinyl and is perfectly mastered. I know I may be in the minority when I say this but, I very much prefer the 1997 mix to the original 1973 mix. The original in my opinion feels very lifeless and like demo versions honestly. The 1997 mix really puts the power in Raw Power as every mix of every track on the album is superior to its 1973 counterpart. If you want the 1997 mix on vinyl, pick up this release.

Well, I absolutely love this release and both options please me greatly. Long live rock and roll!

Is the cover very flimsy or sturdy cause a lot of Sony legacy reissues have flimsy covers.

in my opinion bowie's mix brings the rock/rock n roll elements of the record to the first plane whereas iggy's mix is a more modern take of the album where everything just sounds more alternative and hard but also somewhat commercial, there is still some rawness to the bowie's mix that is fairly enchanting i would say

Love this double. But..... I've had two copies that both LPs were completely warped. Anyone else have trouble with this?

The 1997 Iggy remix sounds so much better than the Bowie mix. Love this pressing and sold my Sundazed version. The Bowie mix is basically vocals and lead guitar over dubs with everything else turned down so low you can't hear it at all on some parts. I hear the 97 remix sounded terrible on CD but the vinyl is great. Highly recommended.

iggy mix is down out of the red so there is no distortion/clipping, because it's a record so you can't do that. awesome!

a lot of cracks
bad manufactured vinyl
i wonder if they test them

Is it just me, or does the Iggy mix actually sound really good on vinyl here? And I'm one who really dislikes the 1997 CD.

Granted, it sounds quite a bit different than the original Bowie mix, but it seems like what Iggy was going for in '97 really comes through here.
