Honest,and rocking

"taken from the lust for life tour, iggy and his band(stacey heydon, tony sales, hunt sales , and former stooges keyboardist scott thurston [replacing david bowie]) put on an excellent show. iggy informs the audience that there are no stars on stage and they don't have to applaud. he also names off his band members and and mentions that all the men in his band came to visit him in the mental hospital.this album is an unpolished one take from the september 23,1977 concert at hippodrome in paris france and features the rareities "cc rider/jenny take a ride" and "that's how strong my love is". he rants a few times about the overwheling egos of rock stars and this endears him even more to his audience.this cd may not be for the casual fan but then again neither is iggy. if you want to hear music from a real band that believed in what they were doing this is an album to buy, a must have if you will. most of the bands that were outselling iggy at the time are now merely bargain bin garbage, but the ig will always be cool and will always be himself he didn't need to dress up in costumes or put on elaborate stage shows to secure his following.john lennon once said "give me some truth" well iggy delivered, even when no one wanted to hear it."
Iggy said it best himself...

""This is the best f---ing band in the world right now," Iggy tells the audience, and it is. The live versions of these songs are (if it's possible) even better than the album versions. It isn't a perfect recording (there are some horrible feedback squeals in the Passenger) but it's well worth trying to ignore them. The rest of the CD is absolutely wonderful. This one actually includes Iggy's comments between songs (including a discussion between him and drummer Hunt Sales that I would die to be able to understand) which are really interesting, especially when he orders the audience not to applaud after his songs. This is definitely better than TV Eye Live. You can actually hear the backing vocals here! (If you're not a fan of the Sales brothers, well, too bad.)"

"Alright,now THIS is more like it.An eleven track live performance from an early Iggy tour,mind you.This might've been his very first European solo outing.From his 'Lust For Life' trek.The sound isn't perfect,but outside of a few moments of annoying feedback,'Hippodrome-Paris '77' is a darn good live release.Some killer cuts include "Lust For Life","Passenger",the rarely played Mitch Ryder cover "C.C.Rider/Jenny Take A Ride" and a couple of Stooges numbers "Raw Power" and "I Wanna Be Your Dog".Line-up:Iggy-vocals,Stacey Heydon-guitar,former Stooges member Scott Thurston-keyboards,Tony Sales-bass and Hunt Sales-drums.A must-have."
