The Stooges to release mammoth 'Fun House' 50th anniversary box set

Iggy Pop has never done anything by halves and the latest release from his former band, The Stooges, proves that ethos hasn’t changed a bit. The band are set to release a huge vinyl box set of their seminal album Fun House.

A pivotal moment in the evolution of rock and roll, the album has long been lauded as the birthplace of punk and while the band aren’t making that claim they are giving the record, released in 1970 and enjoying its 50th anniversary, a proper outing.

Out on July 17th via Rhino Records, the album is a huge 15xLP collection that features the album’s complete session, a live New York performance from 1970, a slipmat, posters, prints, a 45 adapter, and two 7″ singles. It makes one hell of a box set.

The set also comes with liner notes from a plethora of artists who saw the record as the pinnacle of their inspiration, including, Tom Morello, Joan Jett, Flea, Thurston Moore, Henry Rollins, Steve Van Zandt, and more.

But you better be quick as there are only exactly 1,970 copies available for purchase and this collector’s item will go very quickly indeed.
