Compiled by Ben Blackwell of Third Man Records, & previously only available in the USA as a super limited edition release for sale exclusively at the TMR record stores in Nashville & Detroit. Includes The Stooges self-titled debut album paired with a bonus LP including material lifted from the deluxe Stooges CD box. Features a selection of tracks appearing on vinyl exclusively on this release.

During the psychedelic haze of the late '60s, the grimy, noisy, and relentlessly bleak rock & roll of the Stooges was conspicuously out of time. Like the Velvet Underground, the Stooges revealed the underside of sex, drugs, and rock & roll, showing all of the grime beneath the myth. The Stooges, however, weren't nearly as cerebral as the Velvets. Taking their cue from the over-amplified pounding of British blues, the primal raunch of American garage rock, and the psychedelic rock (as well as the audience-baiting) of the Doors, the Stooges were raw, immediate, and vulgar.
