Overview

Rock history is made right in front of the lens—a new, smaller format edition includes an interview with, and foreword by, Iggy himself

 

"Mick Rock is one crazy photographer. This is the shit."  —Iggy Pop

 

When the Godfather of Punk met the Godfather of Rock Photography in 1972, the event spawned a series of photos of unique impact. Iggy and the Stooges had come to London in the summer of 1972 to record their seminal punk masterpiece Raw Power with David Bowie as executive producer, and Mick Rock was on hand to shoot the cover. The uncompromising images that emerged from that one unforgettable session at London's Scala Theater have now passed into rock history and are presented here in all of their gritty glory. More than 30 years later this superb collection of more than 200 of those photographs contains an interview with the subject conducted by the photographer in 1972.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Rock's 2000 publication of Raw Power: Iggy and the Stooges 1972 (Creation Books) marked the first time that the iconic photos of the Stooges' 1972 Raw Power album recording sessions and their first and only UK concert became widely available. However, Rock (Classic Queen) repurchased the rights to the collection and has reworked it for this edition. These gritty portraits and powerful stage shots helped define the band's aesthetic and marked a milestone in the career of one of the greatest music photographers of the 1970s. This volume includes original 1972 interview material and a foreword by Stooges front man Iggy Pop. VERDICT An important record of an important band at an important time. Rock's work is a testament to the expressive power of music and photography alike. Replacing the 2000 volume mentioned above with this edition should satisfy all but the most obsessive of fans. Owners of 2005's Raw Power: Iggy & the Stooges (Omnibus), though, will find no significant differences in this Palazzo publication.—Neil Derksen, Gwinnett Cty. P.L., Lawrenceville, GA
