Iggy Pop TV Eye - Live 77

From cduniverse:
Although Iggy Pop's previous band, the legendary Stooges, were the subject of several live albums (many were contractual obligations of varying sound quality), Iggy's first officially released live album was 1978's TV Eye Live. Iggy is backed by a fine group of musicians, including none other than David Bowie on keyboards, and Tony and Hunt Sales on bass and drums (the two would join Bowie in the '80s as part of his Tin Machine project), all of whom augment Pop's savage rock perfectly. Recorded during several stops on his 1977 comeback tour, TV Eye Live helped connect the proto-punk rock of Iggy's early days with the industrial grind of his late-'70s work.

Included are several inspired renditions of such Stooges standards as the opening "TV Eye," "I Got A Right," the minimalist crawl of "Dirt" and the sleaze anthem "I Wanna Be Your Dog."
Other highlights include selections from Iggy's solo recordings--the supercharged "Lust For Life" (a hit nearly 20 years later when featured in the film Trainspotting), "Funtime," "Sixteen" and "Nightclubbing." Fairly short for a live album (barely 36 minutes long), TV Eye Live is a breathless, adrenaline-charged shot of Iggy Pop that will leave many craving for more.
