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).
