IGGY POP - CLEVELAND LIVE 77 CS
In spring 1977 Iggy Pop had just finished up working on The Idiot, a collaboration with his friend and West Berlin housemate David Bowie, and put together a band for a short leg of club shows to promote the then upcoming LP. This band featured Bowie's Low guitarist Ricky Gardiner, the Sales brothers Tony and Hunt on rhythm section, and Bowie himself on keyboards.
This band would play together for 28 days in March and April of 77 for a run of shows through the UK and North America. This full live recording, taken on the 21st of March at the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland, is the ultimate document of this short lived line-up. Tracked using the borrowed live recording rig of The Rolling Stones (who happened to be around to lend it), the set was recorded for later radio broadcast and then shelved.
The set heavily features Stooges material, occasionally dipping into tracks from The Idiot (released three days beforehand), and all delivered with a glam swagger that makes full use of the personnel on board. An essential document for all fans of Iggy, Ziggy, and freak music in general.
