  • This fairly extensive box set collects six Iggy Pop live shows from between 1977 and 1981. Drawing from all over Iggy's career to that point, the set finds the godfather of punk rock in his absolute prime during the commercial and artistic peak of the original punk movement. Iggy's performances during this period were simply incendiary, baiting the audience with venom and wit and attacking the songs as if he's in a rock-&-roll street fight. Iggy's revolving-door band (which at points featured David Bowie on keyboards and Sex Pistol Glen Matlock on bass) act as a leather-clad Famous Flames to Iggy's blood-and-peanut-butter-smeared James Brown. Far from your average batch of bootlegs, the recording quality here is surprisingly good, making it a worthy purchase for non-Iggy fanatics as well.
