Iggy Pop – Roadkill Rising, The Bootleg Collection 1977-2009 (2011)

While we’re all waiting for “Angle of the Dangle”, issuing four discs of live recordings and to summarize a career as Iggy Pop’s, it makes sense and we’re talking about a career for 40-plus years. “Préliminaires” was marked obviously by the death of Ron Asheton, Iggy took on a path down to blues with some jazz overtones and it was the less rock-oriented album he ever made, listening now into this raw sounding bootleg, reminds us of who Iggy actually is and why – most of us – love him since the 70s. And well, on the first CD features material from Pop’s legendary 1977 tour with Bowie on keyboards and the Thin White Duke, it is quite something even if the recordings are not surgically clean. And we also have the Stooges reunion gigs from 2003, the best proof that nobody else can play those songs like the guys who wrote them.

And we’ve got almost everything we could wish for from the infamous “Louie Louie” to “In The Death Car”, from “Lust For Life” and “China Girl” to “Skull Ring” and “Les Feuilles Mortes (Autumn Leaves)”, from the legendary “The Passenger” to “Fucking Alone”, from “Sister Midnight” to “Blah Blah Blah”. Magnetic and disturbing, Iggy is one of his kind. Just never forget this. “Roadkill Rising” is Pop’s best career retrospective to date: Raw Power!!!
