Product Description

Roadkill Rising: The Bootleg Collection, 1977-2009 is a comprehensive 4-CD set of newly remastered bootleg concert recordings by Iggy Pop. Roadkill Rising features the best of concerts recorded over four decades and from venues all over the world. All his Stooges and solo classics are covered, as well as deep album tracks and offbeat covers. It's entertaining look at one of rock and roll s most vital performers on stage and completely in his element and a must for fans.

Known to many as the "Godfather of Punk" for his groundbreaking albums with the Stooges, Pop helped defined New Wave with his late-'70s recordings with David Bowie. He began to gain real commercial success in the '80s, and the with the advent of grunge in the '90s, he became more popular than ever. The 2000s saw Iggy's critical stature rise even higher, with the reformation of the Stooges and their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Of course, Iggy refused to be pinned down, following the Stooges reunion album The Weirdness with Preliminaires, a jazz-influenced solo album and a true departure for him.

Review

Roadkill Rising invariably succeeds in presenting an Iggy Pop gig as an exceedingly exciting place to be, where the line separating exhilaration and unrest is routinely blurred. --Pitchfork May 2011

Thankfully, Iggy himself sorted through three decades of tapes to assemble this killer four-disc package. --Rolling Stone May 2011

Spanning The Idiot/Lust for Life late-'70s solo comeback concerts through the 21st-century Stooges reunion tours, this four-CD live box is so raw that you can almost see the twisting, sinewy torso and smell the sweat and peanut butter, as the sonic levels constantly push into the red. --SPIN June 2011

I am thoroughly enjoying this collection, but there's something you need to understand before you spend any money: THIS IS A COLLECTION OF BOOTLEG RECORDINGS. Hardcore Iggy fans have spent a lot of time and money on Iggy bootlegs and will appreciate the quality of this collection, of course, but the rest of you should understand that these aren't the pristine-quality recordings you get from official "live albums." If that's what you're looking for, you can check out some other Iggy releases like Telluric Chaos, Sister Midnight, or find a good used copy of the (sadly now out of print) King Biscuit Flour Hour recording Iggy Pop: Live In NYC. Roadkill Rising, on the other hand, is a collection of bootleg recordings, cherry-picked for quality and presumably cleaned up a bit by professional sound engineers (kind of like James Williamson cleaned up the bootleg Metallic K.O. recordings). So don't expect the sound quality to be perfect. That being said, the sound quality here is certainly MUCH better than most Iggy bootlegs I've heard, and the performances picked are all excellent, though naturally I prefer his Seventies material (when he was collaborating with David Bowie) and his "Naughties" material (when he re-united with the Stooges).

Take heed of the other reviewer's caution on the sound quality. I had no problem with it but as stated, if you want clean, you'll be disappointed.

However, the selections and performances are really, really good. Any longtime Iggy fan will enjoy this a lot. My one little quibble, which keeps this from getting the full 5 stars in my book, is that there isn't any information with it about the bands and the players. Iggy's played with tons of great musicians over the years and many of them are here: David Bowie, the Ashetons, Mike Watt, and on and on and on........but if I weren't familiar with some of the recordings, I'd not even necessarily known even some of who was playing. It'd be great fun and a tribute to the musicians to know who they were and to see them get a little credit.

Other than that, I recommend this highly and especially at this reasonable price.

Yes, the quality of the sound is not perfect. And yes, the information about what musicians are playing what is missing. BUT you have FOUR discs of great music: 70's, 80's, 90's and 00's. That's a lot of songs and pretty much all of them are good (I personally enjoyed the songs from, in my opinion, his best album and tour: "Beat them up")
You hit the "play" button and it makes you want to listen to the four cd's, one after the other.

No studio polish on these tracks, they are rough and very true to what being at an Iggy Pop show is like. Having been in attendance at the bazaar festival in 2001 it was awesome to hear the recordings of it, non hardcore fans should indeed be warned this is a bootleg collection. No overdubs or studio polish, just the raw power of Iggy Pop.
