Unboxing The Stooges ‘Fun House’ 50th Anniversary Edition
Rhino is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Fun House with the first LP edition of the 1999 7-CD Rhino handmade boxed set (1970: The Complete Fun House Sessions). Limited Edition Boxed Set – 1,970 individually numbered copies: https://Rhino.lnk.to/FunHouse
Fans will hear a newly remastered 2-LP version of Fun House, cut at half speed (45 rpm) for optimum audio quality, with a 4th side vinyl etching. The set’s remaining 13 LPs contain nothing less than every take from the Fun House sessions, in order, exactly as The Stooges recorded them. Those studio tracks are followed by a recording of The Stooges performing live in New York City in August 1970, just as Fun House was released. The 39-minute concert remained unreleased until 2010, when it came out as Have Some Fun: Live At Ungano’s.
Rounding out the music in this deluxe set are two mixes of the single “Down On The Street”/“I Feel Alright.” The first is the “Mono Single Edit” released in France, and the other is the unique “Single Mix” that was unreleased until the original 1999 boxed set. Each one is pressed on 7-inch vinyl and presented in a sleeve with reproduction artwork.
Beyond the music, the collection also includes a 24-page booklet with rare photos and extensive liner notes, featuring an essay by Henry Rollins and testimonials penned by an extensive list of rock ‘n’ roll luminaries including Henry Rollins, Clem Burke, Flea, Joan Jett, Shirley Manson, J Mascis, Duff McKagan, Thurston Moore, Tom Morello, Karen O, Andy Partridge, and Steven Van Zandt, among others, plus posters, prints, a turntable slipmat, and a 45 adapter.
