    In response to Philip's question, I owned both in '77, always searching
for those
alternate mixes/versions but none appeared on either the cassette or the
8-track. The
same goes for Adventure. If I'm not mistaken, the CD version was done
without the
band's knowledge. I don't think Tom ever wanted that ending. Lenny kaye
recalls telling
Tom when they gave him an advance tape of the rough mixes then the finished
that he preferred the non-fadeout. Obviously his opinion fell on deaf ears.
So he
was pleased when he heard the CD MM.

    Philip, being the Stooges fan/collector, are you aware that the 8 track
of "Raw
Power" contains alternate mixes? I remember reading this in Creem Magazine
back in
the 70's. I never did get my hands on one. You may want to investigate this
Thanks, M T C
