4.0 out of 5 stars Valuable, if mildly flawed, collection 18 Jun 2011
By Stephen Lloyd VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is a 4 disc collection of bootleg recordings culled from over 20 different American and European gigs and spanning a staggering 4 decades.

Given the volume of tracks which must have been available for consideration I'm assuming that the compilers ultimately prioritised performance above sound quality in their selections. Though these tracks have been `remastered' they are still bootlegs so if you desire Hi-Fi sonics you won't find them here. Sound quality varies across the 4 discs but in my opinion there is nothing less than `good' on offer (but please note I have no problem with bootleg sound quality!)

It is also inevitable that the subjective selection of these tracks will raise questions as to the inclusion and absence of certain songs. Why for example give us the throwaway `Batman theme' and neglect to include any selections at all from `Zombie Birdhouse'? For a comprehensive collection such as `Roadkill Rising' this issue is mildly disappointing.

None of the tracks are replicated so you get them once only. This I view positively as I do also the decision of the compilers not to restrict songs to their contemporary tours. So we are given versions of 70's and 80's tracks from 90's and 00's gigs which provides interest and variety.

The packaging could be better. The discs are housed in a jewel CD case and not a box which would have made the release a far classier affair. Also, the booklet is flimsy and offers no information relating to the musicians playing on the selected tours. Surely this release should have warranted such detail as well as perhaps commissioning Iggy aficionado Nick Kent to provide some sleeve notes.

Anyway, minor criticisms aside, you should still buy this collection for it contains some raw and blistering live versions of stooges and Iggy tracks. Presently you will not find a better `official' audio document of the man's collected stage performances.

Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars iggy's roadkill 23 Nov 2012
By jeffers
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
a blast through iggy pop's career.this cd comprises 4 discs,the 70's,80's,90's and 00's.ok so the quality of the recordings on the 70's disc aren't fantastic,but they are still enjoyable.the recording quality on the other discs is all excellent.my favourite moment is on the 80's disc,on the track one for my baby[and one more for the road],iggy gets really narked at the audience,and keeps telling them to shut up as they are being too noisy,because he wants to sing a soft song! he eventually gets to sing his song! the cd contains a booklet with a few decent photos of the man.if you're an iggy pop fan you'll love this,enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Best Of The Bootlegs 27 May 2011
By Bardamu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Collection 9 Jun 2011
By J. Weber - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection 9 Aug 2012
By Esteban Lopez Morata - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Raw Bootleg Power 6 Aug 2014
By Brandon S. Curry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.
