Mike Oldfield: Tubular Bells; Iggy And The Stooges: Raw Power
Simon Frith, Let It Rock, August 1973
SOME RECORDS GET so much critical attention that I cant listen to them blind, cant ignore other opinions. So, according to John Peel Tubular Bells represents "the first breakthrough into history that any musician regarded primarily as a rock musician has made." And Dave Marsh argues that Raw Power is already "the best album of the 70s" Iggy has "summed everything up and it took him only nine songs to do it."
