THE STOOGES RELEASE WILD VERSION OF ‘FUNHOUSE’

The Stooges

SECOND TRACK – A WILD VERSION OF “FUNHOUSE” – NOW AVAILABLE!

THIRD MAN RECORDS ANNOUNCES 
THE STOOGES’ LIVE AT GOOSE LAKE: AUGUST 8TH, 1970
OUT ON VINYL, CD AND DIGITAL ON AUGUST 7, 2020

PREVIOUSLY-UNHEARD SOUNDBOARD RECORDING
OF THE ORIGINAL STOOGES LINEUP’S FINAL PERFORMANCE
AT GOOSE LAKE FESTIVAL

Third Man Records is excited to announce The Stooges‘ Live At Goose Lake: August 8, 1970. This previously-unheard, high-quality soundboard recording of the original Stooges lineup’s final performance — recorded just before the release of their earthshaking 1970 album Fun House — will be available on vinyl, CD and digital on August 7, 2020, nearly 50 years to the day after the performance. Hear “T.V. Eye – Radio Edit”HERE, and pre-save the album HERE.

The audio was lovingly restored by Vance Powell (The White Stripes, Chris Stapleton) and mastered by Bill Skibbe at Third Man Mastering, and liner notes were written by Jaan Uhelzski (Creem Magazine).

There will be two limited-edition colored vinyl variants available as well — the Rough Trade version will be on purple-colored vinyl with a standard LP jacket, and the indie exclusive version will be on cream-colored vinyl with a screen-printed LP jacket. Pre-order the album on CD HERE and vinyl HERE.

The apocryphal tale of the Stooges performance at the Goose Lake Festival has been told countless times  over  the  past  five  decades.  Bassist  Dave  Alexander,  due  to  nerves  or  overindulgence  or  whatever  you  choose  to  fill  in  the  blank,  absolutely  spaces  in  front  of  200,000  attendees.

He  does not play a single note on stage. He is summarily fired by Iggy Pop immediately following the gig. Here starts the beginning of the end of the Stooges.

But  what  if  that  simply… wasn’t  the  case?  What  if  you  could  prove  otherwise?  Well,  it’d  be  the  proto-punk equivalent of having an immediate, on-the-scene, man on the street report of all those folkies  booing  Dylan’s  electric  set  at  Newport  in  ‘65.  Irrefutable  evidence  of  what  ACTUALLY  went down.

Found buried in the basement of a Michigan farmhouse amongst other tasty analog artifacts of the same era, the 1/4” stereo two-track  tape  of  the  Stooges  complete  performance  at  Goose  Lake on August 8th, 1970 is the Rosetta Stone for fans of this seminal band.

Not only is this the last ever performance of the original godhead Stooges line-up, but it is the ONLY known soundboard recording of said line-up. Playing the entirety of their canonical 1970 masterpiece Fun House, the sound, the performance, everything about this record is revelatory.

Would you believe that… Alexander actually DID play bass on this occasion? Or that, despite grievous failures on some songs, Alexander is damn solid on others? Especially on the bass-led songs “Dirt” and “Fun House”?

Does Iggy provoke the crowd to tear down festival barriers? Did the powers that be pull the plug on the Stooges? So many questions are answered only to have more arise.

Released to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the performance, Live at Goose Lake: August 8th 1970,  is  the  rare  release  that  literally  rewrites  the  history  of  these  Rock  and  Roll  Hall of Fame inductees.

Third Man Records was launched by Jack White in Detroit, MI in 2001, and in 2009 opened its current Nashville, TN location, which houses a record store, novelties lounge (featuring the Third Man Record Booth), label offices and distribution center, photo studio, and the world’s only live venue with direct-to-acetate recording capabilities.

Third Man Records returned to Detroit in November 2015 with its second physical location, Third Man Records Cass Corridor — record store, novelties lounge, in-store performance stage, record booth, and vinyl record pressing plant, which you can witness in action through viewing windows in the store, pressing the very records available for purchase.
