TOP 50 REVIEWERon 25 February 2016
If Little Richard was the Quasar of Rock 'n' Roll - and he was! - you could say Iggy is the Quasar of Rock. He has the same elemental, raw, unadulterated energy and directness. If neither existed, we'd have had to invent them.
This excellent compilation, generous at over 150 minutes, takes us through Iggy's career from the edge-of-seat primal power and punk simplicity of his early Stooges days to the later, hardly less urgent music. Some of it is unbearably thrilling, even now.
All the 'hits' are here, mostly on Side One: No Fun, Down on the Street, Gimme Some Skin, Search and Destroy, Raw Power, China Girl, Funtime, the classic Lust For Life, The Passenger, and hilarious Success, and many others Sad and poignant to hear Bowie on some tracks, having co-wrote quite a few too. {We've recently lost Lou & Bowie...I hope Iggy looks after himself.}
There are jewels to be had on CD2, not least the wonderfully titled Some weird Sin, the irresistible Real Wild Child, the exhilarating Home, a stunning duet with the B52s' Katie Pierson on Candy, and a daft, stripped down version of Cole Porter's Well Did You Evah! sung very sexily with Deborah Harry, implicitly transposing the original scenario to more modern times.
Iggy is one of rock's great originals, who took the best of rock and blues and made something his own out of it all. A little guy with a big heart and unignorable voice, a wide grin, and astounding musculature to boot!
38 tracks, over an hour and a half of music, a superb booklet, all in excellent sound - as they say, what's not to like?

Essential.

Brilliant collection of his work, good introduction for someone whom might want to listen for first time to what he's about, and how he has progressed through time.
