Iggy Pop is a rock 'n
roll icon and this explosive performance at the Olympia is proof positive of
this. The stage came to life with Pop stalking and dancing in his flailing
trademarked manner. All the hits of the time were sung and man got into the
performance, giving his heart and soul over to the music.
The tracklisting for
this concert was:
5 Foot 1
Lust For Life
I Got A Right
Real Wild Child
My Baby Want To R' N' R
Brick By Brick
I Wanna Be Your Dog
Search And Destroy
Down On The Street
This is one DVD that
you would only purchase if you were a fan of the man and his music.
Considering the performance is held together by the sheer intensity of Iggy
and the music, the camera is almost fixed primarily on him throughout the
performance in it's entirety. There is nothing else to attract the attention
of the camera really, and you will find that it's all that you need.
Watch the performance
even if you are not a fan and I think you will come away with a greater
appreciation of Iggy Pop and the music that he creates. His wiry frame almost
seems to discharge kinetic energy as he thrashes himself about during each
song, arms and legs akimbo.
This is a great DVD in
terms of the performance given by the artist and well worth adding to a music
The video is pretty
ordinary for this DVD actually and there is a screener stating this at the
start of the DVD. Whilst it is grainy all the way through, the quality never
gets so terrible that it is unwatchable or detracts from you. The show is
presented in a 4x3 full frame format.
5.1 Dolby Digital - Now
this is where it gets nice. The whole DVD has been remastered into a lovely
surround mix that uses all the channels appropriately.
There is not a lot to complain about here with regards to audio, however most
younger people won't appreciate the good job done transferring it to a 5.1 mix
as that now is the norm rather than the exception.
Extras are pretty much non existant on here
with a discography and Umbrella Propaganda for other titles.
