    Both pressings sound fantastic, the booklet is great, and the cover is sturdy for the price. However, United is still an awful pressing plant, both of my LPs arrived with scuffs due to the paper inner-sleeves but I can't hear them at all- cause it's Raw Power. So pick this up when you get the chance. It's well worth it.

      great record, great release. the 97 mix sounds so so so so SO much better in this version. raw fucking power.

        This is a pretty good bargain. The Iggy Mix actually sounds really good here, nowhere near as abrasive as the CD. And if you still don't like it, hey. Bowie's mix is there, too.

          Is this is Iggy mix or Bowie mix? If this isn’t the Iggy Mix does anyone know which pressing is?

            I always try to imagine what this record would have sounded like had it been properly recorded but I guess we'll never know.

              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
