Charles A. Miller | Baltimore, Maryland U.S.A. | 07/30/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The performance is wonderful, the sound quality is great... but for whatever incomprehensible reason, the producer of this title decided to juggle the original playlist! You can actually hear the music fade out at certain points in order to acheive this. Why? Do he/she think they knew better what order the songs should be heard in than Iggy Pop did?

Instead of this knock-off, buy "Live Ritz NYC 1986 (IMPORT) instead. It is also available from Amazon at about the same price, and it is the same concert, however it runs in the original order as it did that November night. The only difference is it omits "Lust For Life" probably for space requirements, while this new "Live In NYC" omits "Cry For Love" for probably the same reason.

Incidentally, the concert actually ended with "Cry For Love" can actually hear Iggy say "goodnight" at the end of the track. One more notable difference... the import is graced with actual photos from the concert while this new rehash has clever, but generic artwork.

I gave this new CD 4 stars because I didn't want to drag down a great Iggy performance with a 1 star rating... however compared to the vastly superior "Live Ritz NYC 1986", pass on this pointless cash-in nonsense."
Iggy Pop - 'Live In NYC' (King Biscuit Flower Hour)

"'Live In NYC' was recorded at the Ritz in November,1986.Not as good as his 'King Biscuit' CD from Boston's The Channel(see my review).Overall,this is 'okay' for a live release.The sound mix is a bit too tame for me,however Iggy's vocals are fine.Counted just three Stooges(no pun intended)tunes here,"I Got A Right","Gimme Danger" and the bonus track "I Wanna Be Your Dog".Other worthy tracks are the full throttle rocker "Real Wild Child","Sister Midnight","Lust For Life","Night Clubbing" and the Igster's classic/anthem "Five Foot One".Check it out."
