Notes

• The Goldisc K-9347/8 and K-9554/5 master pairs are different versions and belong to different subs.
• The lower numbers, with K-9347/8 etched in the runouts, are from the original West-Coast Kendun lacquers and belong to the original pressing, r22700888, with "IMP 1018" on the labels: Kill City.
• The higher numbered pair, with K-9554/5 runouts, has lacquers cut at Sterling and belong to the first re-pressing, r11880203, with "IMR 1018" on the labels: Kill City. (The Sterling masters were used for other later Bomp/Import/Jem/Visa pressings as well.)
• The "lacquer" from Kendun with "mastering" from Sterling, shown here in credits and as Variant 1, is the accidental result of the use of an A-side plate with the earlier Kendun mastering and a later Sterling-mastered B-side plate, (with the original IMP 1018 labels). This "hybrid" has a separate sub at Kill City.
• Some copies of the Sterling+K-9554/5 repressing also exist with the original "IMP 1018" labels.

    Don't sleep on this LP. After Fun House & The Idiot, this is my personal fave Iggy-related recording. Check out the backstory/circumstances regarding its creation...Fascinating!

      Finally got an original copy of this classic, if you see it grab it. Killer record!

        My copy of this is missing the cover. If anyone has a cover to sell...or a beat-up vinyl with a decent cover, I would consider purchasing.
        I asked Suzy of Bomp! records if she had a spare, but without luck.
        Cheers!

                  The 2010 remix is like a brand new album, it went from being a collection of rough pseudo-demos to a full-fledged, cleaned up, dynamic and brilliant display of two young men desperate to save their at-stake careers. I'm sure Iggy and James would have gotten signed back in 1975 if they had the album mixed like this.

                    Very similar to the Rolling Stones. Quite good - recommended if you like Jagger!

                      Iggy sang all the vocal tracks while on weekend leave from the UCLA Hospital sometime in 1975 (where he was recovering from drug addiction, etc.)
