The live material here four discs of it are a collection of live discs that have previously been available in various forms, though only one of them has been released in any official capacity. Some enjoy the slapdash presentation, the sloppy musicianship and the raw energy of the set, while others see it as a cynical cash-grab that damaged the reputation that Iggy had tried so hard to foster over the previous year.
It was also the first time we got a glimpse of Iggy the mercenary, an image that dominated his career for the next odd years.
Not until Post Pop Depression would he again be taken seriously an artist, which was a shame, considering the highs of albums like New Values , Blah Blah Blah and the rather brilliant final Stooges album, Ready to Die.
TV Eye Live is the best of the live discs here, because it comes from the strongest sources and contains more than one song from Lust For Life.

Some great stuff. But I really only ever saw him as a buffoon. Sorry. But seriously, I never even looked his way for music, much like Lou Reed. But there are these two albums that Iggy Pop released after he and The Stooges parted ways. The first being The Idiot and the second being Lust /5(12).
