There's plenty of detail on the creative process behind Iggy's music. but inevitably, the best parts are the blackly funny tales of Iggy at his worst. I'd always wondered where the first reference to "punk rock" appeared.

According to Paul Trynka’s Iggy Pop biography, Open Up and Bleed, Columbia Records recorded the Stooges’ show with the idea of releasing it as a live album, but in January they’d decided it wasn’t worthy of release and that Iggy’s contract would not be renewed. When I first read that sentence a few years ago, my heart skipped the proverbial beat and I scribbled on the page: Unreleased live show?? I was a devoted enough Stooges fan to know that if this is true, this shelved live album would be the only known full multitrack recording ever made of a vintage Stooges concert.
In the seemingly never ending chronicling of the Stooges, this collection gives a glimpse-via CBS rehearsal tapes-of what might have been the next album after Raw Power had the band not self destructed. Some of these songs ("Cock In My Pocket," "Head On") made their first appearance on the legendary Metallic . A rag tag collection of live tapes from their final tour featuring maniacal versions of "Rich Bitch" and "Wet My Bed" round out this collectors' package.
After the Stooges split up, Iggy embarked on an erratic solo career which, after a couple of albums produced by his friend and mentor David Bowie, led to a spiral of diminishing returns. His appetite for drink and hard drugs took a predictable toll, and by the start of the 80s he had become, in his own words, a "miserable, vainglorious junkie". But he clawed his way back, and at the end of 1986 he scored his first hit single, with the Bowie-produced song "Real Wild Child"
