Album Review: "From KO To Chaos" by Iggy And The Stooges (8/10)

Skydog Records

Producer: Marc Zermati

A prize for any Iggy and The Stooges lovers, this 7 CD and 1 DVD box set (whew!) hoovers up and refines some of the band’s last and most notorious live gigs, as well as some ensuing live solo gems (Iggy does “Batman”), and, finally, a triumphant band reunion. The comp centers on the infamous Metallic KO LP, where the last blazes of a confrontational band meet up with the sounds of bottles breaking against the stage. You get the Stooges’ last two shows, now with the tape speed corrected, a nice touch. And even if you maybe didn’t need the acoustic Iggy stuff, you DO need this for the 24 page booklet! Not for beginners, this is an advanced course for fans!
