The Stooges is the Debut Album by the American Psychedelic/Garage-Rock Band The Stooges.
During the 60's, The Stooges set was quite different from what we think of them nowadays. Their Songs were simple 2 minute composition that in concert would turn out in Improvisations that would last for several minutes each. That's what they brought to the Recording of their Debut for Elektra, 5 songs which they intended to expand on Studio. When the version of the Album was surrendered, it was quickly turned down, with the allegation that 5 Songs weren't enough for making an Album. Fortunately they had written 3 new songs the day before and they were added to the Album the next day. The Producer called to work with The Stooges was the one and only John Cale, of The Velvet Underground fame. The Violinist which gave many of VU songs their defining characteristic and made them an unique act. His influence can be heard specifically in the Song, "We Will Fall", where he plays the Viola. Like their follow-up, Fun House, failed to be recognized upon its release, even though it has now achieved the status as being one of the 200-best records ever to be made.
Best Tracks - "1969", "I Wanna Be Your Dog", "We Will Fall", "No Fun", "Not Right" and "Little Doll". It is pretty easy to understand how Punk was influenced by The Stooges. They have a Raw Power to them, and even though dwelling into the realms of Psychedelia, it is obvious they were the pioneer of Punk. Ron Asheton's Guitar work is simply amazing.
