I can't believe 'down on the street' is primarily Iggy either. in any case the first two albums are definitely the best for me!

Hi Per, good to see you!

Ivan Kral told me Dog Food was inspired by a blues documentary, where a commentator discusses dog food sales in the Chicago projects - where you can't kep a pet. I did check when it came out and from memory it's 72 or 73 and was mostly shown in Britain in the late 70s. SO I don't think there's any real evidence it's from 71, apart form the mention of Betsy, which isn't compelling.

Ron says Down on the Street was written by by Iggy, too - it was called Down On The Beach, and was devoted to Wendy, with whom he'd spend time up at the lakes. Then when she was out of the picture it was changed to Down On The Street. I'm sure Ron worked up the riff, though.

And yes I totally agree about Iggy saying he wrote every rif - he's told me that several times. But then, when challenged, especially today, he generally tells you ROn did so etc - this is exaclty what happened in TV eye, which he said he wrote, then when I asked him last time he said "Ron wrote the riffs... I spotted them".

I'm glad they changed the lyrics to "Down On The Street". "Down On The Beach" would really set the menacing tone wouldn't it? Laughing

Lyrics?

"Down on the beach where the sun shines,
Floating in the water with a happy mind.
Shes a pretty thing - aint no tan
Shes a pretty thing - aint no tan

NO TAN!
NO TAN!
NO TAN!

Yeah deep in the water I'm lost in love.
Yeah deep in the water I'm lost in love.
A thousand fish - look at you.
A thousand fish - look at you.

AT YOU!
AT YOU!
AT YOU!
Yeah!
COME ON!

The sun shines - happy mind.
Happy mind.
A have a happy mind.
Happy mind."

Hi Paul!

How's the Iggy book selling? I saw it everywhere we travelled in the US and Canada this summer. Must be the biggest-selling Iggy book ever. Deservedly so! It is a truly great piece of work. I even had to buy a US version. Updated version later?
