5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent selection..., 7 Aug 2005
This review is from: A Million In Prizes: The Anthology (Audio CD)
Like most anthologies, this one is aimed at interested parties, rather than committed fans. Apart from two live tracks, this is all straight from the relevant albums.

The collection opens with the killer 1969, the first of ten tracks from the Stooges days.

The classic 'bowie' years follow, and it is good to hear China Girl and Tonight in their proper versions. The brilliant Passenger makes for an excllent finish to the first disc.

Side two doesn't contain many well known tracks but is just as solid as the first CD. They even manage to pluck two good songs from the underwhelming Blah Blah Blah album. Well, Did you Evah! is a great fun duet with Debbie Harry and the closing Iggy and the Stooges reunion (Skull Ring) makes for a fitting end to this compilation.

This is a thoughtfully compiled and nicely presented collection. The remastered sound is sympathetic to the originals and looses none of the power of the early Stooges work. The two short essays in the booklet are informative for the uninitiated. And that front cover picture is a masterpiece.

Iggy Pop is one of rock's masters. His lust for life is almost unparrelled. If you are a rock fan and don't have any Iggy in your collection yet, then this collection is a great way to start...
