Like my overview of the L'Hippodrome show, this is the final show of the 'Lust for Life' tour (source: Dirt's Iggy Pop tradelist).
And to think the L'Hippodrome show was heavy! Compared to San Diego (this one), L'Hippodrome is butch. It ain't got shit on San Diego. I may be overexaggerating on this, but hey, I got my opinion, and so do the other people who have listened to both. This show has some songs rarely even heard or played.
The best examples are: 'Modern Guy' and 'Rock Action'.
'Modern Guy' is a keyboard-oriented song, reminescent of the 'Idiot' tour of early-1977.
'Rock Action' is a bass and drum (or just to say, a rhythm-oriented song) piece, and is the superior song of the two unreleased songs in my opinion, but that's up to you if you've heard it.
Another song, 'One Two Brown Eyes', a 'Them' cover, is pretty faithful to the source material, keeping the drum and bass beat that drives the song along. If observant enough, you can hear Iggy quote lyrics from 'Lust for Life' and 'Modern Guy', which is odd... but a great cover, it's unfortunate he dropped it after this short tour.
'Lust for Life' on the-- well, what do you think what tour?!--'Lust for Life' tour, wasn't all that great. It sounded like a train-wreck a lot of the times I heard some of the renditions. But this rendition was a breath of fresh air, the song is slowed down a bit, giving some composure, making for a great version.
'I Wanna Be Your Dog' was driven by the rhythm section for this rendition, like how the guitar and keyboards drove the 'Idiot' renditions most of the time. Good version though.
'I Got A Right' is decent, I like it, but there really isn't much to say, but I do like the ending...
'Fall in Love with Me' is great, the keyboards, the guitar, the rhythm section, and of course, Iggy, just make this song great live, great enough to be equal to the studio version.
'Raw Power', like 'I Got A Right', there isn't much to say, but it's a decent closer.
'Nightclubbing' is average, I've heard better versions, but this has one hidden gem. Iggy rambles on about a baboon.
'T.V. Eye' is relatively short, and it is disappointing.
'Gloria' is another 'Them' cover. I just have to say... it's alright.
