IGGY POP Live At The Channel Boston, MA 1988 (1988/1990) & King Biscuit Flower Hour Presents Iggy Pop (1988/1997)


Live At The Channel Boston, MA 1988 (1988/1990)
King Biscuit Flower Hour Presents Iggy Pop (1988/1997)
One Show, Two Versions… And A Convoluted Release History

Recorded by the King Biscuit Radio Network in 1988, this concert has been bootlegged (first) and legitimately issued on numerous labels (ROIR, New Rose and King Biscuit, among them) with differing song configurations… and different mixes. Sorting through them all is a chore. For instance, 1997’s King Biscuit Flour Hour Presents (also available for download on Wolfgang’s Vault) doesn’t include the song “Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell,” which is included on the 1990 French import, Live At The Channel Boston, MA 1988. But Channel does not include “Winners & Losers/Scene Of The Crime” and “Cold Metal,” which are on King Biscuit. Recorded on July 19, 1988, during Iggy’s (return to form) Instinct tour, this show features an excellent cross-section of old and new Pop – well recorded, well performed and reasonably well mixed. You can compare each CD’s version of “Tuff Baby,” below (the King Biscuit version plays first… and boasts the better, fuller mix). Either is light years ahead of most of the Iggy boots that have been elaborately boxed in the last few years. Last year’s talk about this album being properly re-issued seems to be, so far, still just talk. Both King Biscuit and The Channel are at Amazon. You can also find The Stooges’ Complete Fun House Sessions in the archives.

    Hey Wilard, once again thanks for all you’re doing here. If (and only if) it’s possible that at some point you could re-up the King Biscuit hour… well… That’d be swell.

    thanks again.
