Iggy Pop: The Idiot (RCA)

Richard Riegel, Creem, June 1977

LET'S SEE, 1977 minus 1973 is four; it's been four whole years since Iggy and the Stooges' milestone Raw Power was released. Four years can be an eternity among the accelerated passages of today's lifestyles, long enough to change cute toddlers into sopored adolescents, or prime-of-your-life hippies into Eagles-authenticated premenopausals. Four years!
