Rezension

Beinhaltet das 86er Werk "Blah-Blah-Blah & "Instinct" aus dem Jahre 1988 - nicht unbedingt seine stärkste Zeit, aber wer kann das schon über seine 80er phase behaupten. Dazu fügen sich nahtlos diverse Outtakes, rare Remixe sowie eine Bonus-Live-Disc "Live At TheChannel 7-19-88", incl. 6 Stooges Classics, ein. Abgerundet wird das weltweit auf 4000 Stück limitierte Sammlerstück durch die extraordinäre Verpackung - mehr "value for money" geht nicht.

Review

It had been nearly 20 years since Iggy Pop exploded onto the music scene and became one of Rock’s most notorious frontmen. After The Stooges split, Iggy recorded a number of solo records for various labels that, sadly, went largely unnoticed. But his tenure at A&M not only brought Iggy back into the spotlight, it put him back on everyone’s turntables. (You remember those, right?)
Iggy Pop: The A&M Recordings contains Iggy’s two A&M albums (1986’s “Blah-Blah-Blah” and 1988’s “Instinct”) in their entirety, rare remixes from the period and the first commercial appearance of the coveted “Live At The Channel 7-19-88” – which had previously only been available as a promo item. Packaged in a special metallic package sure to K.O. the buyer, this release completely documents an important chapter in the career of the Godfather Of Punk.
When Iggy began demo-ing new material with Sex Pistol Steve Jones, he played those demos for his old pal David Bowie (who had recently recorded “China Girl” and “Tonight” – both Bowie/Pop written tracks), and 1986’s “Blah-Blah-Blah” was born. Co-produced by Bowie – who had helmed earlier Pop releases including the classic “Lust For Life” – and Queen engineer David Richards, the album features six tracks co-written with Bowie and three with Jones (including the single “Cry For Love”). The release is best known for its second single, “Real Wild Child (Wild One,)” and the whole album shows Iggy with a new, real wild sense of purpose. This disc is rounded out with extended versions of four tracks from the album: “Cry For Love,” “Real Wild Child (Wild One),” “Fire Girl” and “Baby It Can’t Fail.”
Iggy got back to basics with 1988’s “Instinct,” which found Pop delivering a much heavier record – this time with producer Bill Laswell. And, in addition to co-writing with Pop, Steve Jones handles the guitar work, which is fitting, as “Instinct” most closely resembled his recordings with The Stooges to that point. Bonus material includes extended and dub versions of two of the album’s tracks – “Cold Metal” and “Tuff Baby.”
The final disc holds the highly collectible “Live At The Channel 7-19-88” – a previously promo-only live set that not only features Iggy and band tearing through tracks from “Instinct” but delivering blistering versions of no less than six Stoogesþ classics including “1969,” “Search And Destroy” and “I Wanna Be Your Dog.”
Whether listeners choose to spread peanut butter on themselves when they listen to this collection is completely up to them. But when they experience the raucous Stooges covers on the setþs live disc, Hip-O Select cannot be held liable for any creamy damages that may occur.
“Iggy Pop: The A&M Recordings” was compiled by Grammy®-winning producer Bill Levenson, includes an essay by Dave Thompson, complete lyrics and is housed in more of the award-winning packaging that Hip-O Select has become known for.
