Third Man Records have announced the upcoming release of The Stooges’ Live At Goose Lake: August 8, 1970 – the last ever performance of the original line-up of the band and indeed the only known soundboard recording of said line-up.

The festival slot found The Stooges promoting their just-released Fun House album, although legend has it that bassist Dave Alexander turned up too wasted to play, hastening the collapse of the band. This recently unearthed recording – found buried in the basement of a Michigan farmhouse, restored by Vance Powell and mastered by Bill Skibbe – suggests that story may not be entirely correct.

The album will be released almost 50 years to the day of the original performance, on August 7, 2020. It comes on CD, digital and vinyl formats – including two limited edition coloured vinyl variants – with liner notes by Uncut’s Jaan Uhelzski. Read more and pre-order here.

Fun House itself will be reissued as a 15xLP boxset in July.
