Strictly Limited, Numbered Edition Of Fun House 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition
From the first hit to the last breath, where the design and the aesthetic are so in focus to both reality and the magic that is the essence of true creative vision, FUN HOUSE was the blueprint, the template for what I wanted in Rock n Roll: direct action rhythm where the bass and drums are informed by Urban Blues swing, fire-in-the-hole guitar shred that is way too cool to show off, and a singer who is IN THE F***ING MOMENT alive with all the love, rage, guts and glory that his sonic prayers could beseech. Speaking for anyone who was saved by punk-noise-art-hardcore-psyche-folk-no wave foreverness â FUN HOUSE is where it begins, where we all come out to play. â Thurston Moore
FUN HOUSE is the raw and beautiful truth, it is beyond categorization, and Iâll be listening to it for the rest of my life. â Flea
âDown On The Streetâ taught me everything I needed to know about groove to this day.
âT.V. Eyeâ taught me all I needed to know about how to play a guitar.
âDirtâ killed meâ¦ the slow drudge and discord.
âLoose,â, â1970,â âFun House,â and âL.A. Bluesâ remain pure motherf***ing classics on how rock nâ roll should be done. Period.
This is THE record to have, if you know what the f*** is up. â Duff McKagan
We could go on and on with the famous fan quotes but let's get to the nitty-gritty because by the time you get to the end of reading this, this f!#@ing boxed set may very well be sold out. This year marks the 50th anniversary of The Stooges' iconic FUN HOUSE record and we're bringing you an extremely limited, numbered compendium on a whopping 15 LPs. Featured are a newly remastered 2-LP 45 RPM (for highest audio quality) version of the album, the vinyl debut of THE COMPLETE FUNHOUSE SESSIONS, and HAVE SOME FUN: LIVE AT UNGANO'S, a recording of The Stooges performing live in New York City in August 1970, just as FUN HOUSE was released.
Rounding out the music in this deluxe set are two mixes of the single âDown On The Streetâ/âI Feel Alright.â The first is the âMono Single Editâ released in France, and the other is the unique âSingle Mixâ 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 28-page booklet with rare photos and extensive liner notes, featuring an essay by Henry Rollins and testimonials penned by an extensive list of rock ânâ roll luminaries including Flea, Joan Jett, Shirley Manson, Duff McKagan, Thurston Moore, Tom Morello, Karen O, Mike Watt, and Steven Van Zandt, among others, plus posters, prints, a slipmat, and a 45 adapter.
