Pop, Iggy - Santa Monica ’77 featuring David Bowie (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23- PRLP 3006 CD
The crazed, loud, ‘77 Iggy / Bowie tour (with David only performing on watery / phase shifted keyboards) is one of the highlights of Iggy’s mid/late 70s period, with all the recordings that document this tour, no matter how good they are, sounding kinda poorly defined in terms of instrumental separation, and loud as fuck. Yeah, baby.

“Iggy Pop, live at the Civic Auditorium, Santa Monica, CA on April 15th, 1977. The Iggy/Bowie period is a sharp document of hedonism and salvation. Two rock stars sought salvation from the narcosis of LA, and moved to West Berlin, a move that would not only give birth to Bowie's celebrated Berlin period and resulting trilogy, but take Iggy Pop from the gutters to the stars with his first two solo albums in 1977.
Back on the road with The Idiot (1977) and the impending Lust For Life (1977), Iggy bounces back to life for the 30-date "Rock Around The World" tour, stopping at Santa Monica's Civic Auditorium on the way. Backed by Bowie himself, the formidable Sales brothers (Tony and Hunt), and Ricky Gardiner, Iggy explores his new lease of life with the usual swagger and onstage psychosis.
Pitching Fun House (1970) against The Idiot was sure gonna be one to watch! The the entire original King Biscuit Flower Hour broadcast of Iggy Pop at the Civic Auditorium, Santa Monica, CA from April 15th, 1977.”
