After a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction and an upcoming reissue of their most iconic record, what more can The Stooges pull from their back catalogue? Not surprisingly, there’s an answer: Rhino Handmade is prepping a two-disc reissue of the band’s 1969 self-titled debut LP.

Of course, as you may have read last week, the album already was given a double-disc reissue by Rhino in 2005. This set ups the ante by presenting a complete, alternate mix of the record and several unearthed songs. The set will also feature a bonus 7″ single of one of those previously unreleased studio cuts, “Asthma Attack.” No release date is set, but you can read more about it here and catch the track list after the jump.

Slightly Cynical News Round-Up

  • To the surprise of almost nobody and the anguish of ’80s catalogue fans, EMI has again reshuffled the dates for the next batches of Duran Duran reissues. Duran Duran, Seven and the Ragged Tiger and Arcadia’s So Red the Rose are set for April 20 in the U.S. (note that the U.K. March 29 date for Duran and Tiger still stands – impatient fans, go for an import if you can). Additionally, Notorious and Big Thing will street on July 6, not June 7.
  • Phil Collins hinted to The Rock Radio that more Genesis archival material may be released, including rehearsal sessions or live material. No word on whether Nick Davis will remix it or not.
  • The new issue of Rolling Stone has a cover feature on Jimi Hendrix’s lost music, including stuff that will almost certainly be released by Experience Hendrix and Legacy by the end of 2010. The cover spot comes right after the Valleys of Neptune compilation reached a rather solid No. 4 on the Billboard charts.
  • Late Night with Jimmy Fallon will be celebrating The Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main St. reissue in a big way. The week of May 10 will see as-yet-unannounced musical guests tackling a song from the album each night. No word yet if The Stones themselves will show up.
