The Stooges – “Heavy Liquid”

The Stooges – “Heavy Liquid”

Easy Action Records are set to release the much-delayed Stooges 6 CD box-set, “Heavy Liquid”, any day now. Problems at the printing plant have delayed the release: the original shipment had texture faults on the box - & Easy Action duly (& admirably) returned said stock – demanding replacement in accordance with the originally specified quality threshold.

Details of this sumptuous new set are as follows:
