STOOGES - s/t LP
The Stooges released their self titled debut album in 1969, produced by The Velvet Underground's John Cale. The album was poorly received by fans and critics, perhaps due to The Stooges being new to recording conventional records, with most of their live songs being only two minutes with long improvisations. The original idea for The Stooges was for it to be only five songs, however, the record company rejected it, leaving the band to make up three songs in one night in order for the album to be released ("Real Cool Time", "Not Right", "Little Doll"). Despite being poorly received, the album has become one of rock's classic records.
