Legacy Recordings

Legacy Recordings  is an American record label that is a division of Sony Music.  Formed in 1990 after Sony’s acquiring of CBS Records, Legacy handles the archives of Sony Music-owned labels Columbia Records, Epic Records, RCA Records, RCA Records Nashville, J Records, Windham Hill Records, Arista, LaFace, Jive, Buddah Records, and Philadelphia International Records.  It also handles the catalog of recordings produced by Phil Spector.  (More from Wikipedia)
Then there was a “Deluxe Edition” of Raw Power in 2010 – after the Stooges had reformed and began touring worldwide – on Columbia’s Legacy Recordings label that included a second CD of live recordings made at Richards in Atlanta in October 1973; a third CD entitled “Rarities, Outtakes & Alternatives from the Raw Power Era”; and a DVD featuring a documentary by Morgan Neville and additional live recordings made in November 2009 at Planeta Terra Festival inSão Paulo, Brazil.  Deluxe Editions tend to be pricey though, and many fans cannot afford to pay that much for music.  The Raw Power Deluxe Edition is currently available on Amazon for $99.97 and up and was probably no cheaper when it originally came out.
