Iggy Pop And James Williamson - Kill City (1975/77 us, 2010 edition, restored, remixed, remastered with 24page booklet )



I like what this album has to say. It is rather concept, the music is well thought out. It adheres to no particular genre. A lot of people have borrowed its ideas. It's one of the very first independent LPs I know of. I hope you like it.
Iggy Pop

Kill City was by all measures a desperate effort, a singularly honest and heartfelt perfomance a genuine progression of our song writing, and another in a long line of flops that were later resurrected and heralded as masterpieces.

By the time it was released as a record, both Iggy and I were off doing other things with our lives, but with this release we are not only reunited in our musical endeavors but in our appreciation of this album, its remix, and its importance to us as artists.
James Williamson

Very well-done, albeit Stones-y album... James Williamson (Raw Power, New Values, etc.) was by far the best guitarist Iggy ever collaborated with.

Thanks a lot and thanks especially for including all the liner notes. I'm sure it's a drag to scan all that in but I for one really appreciate it.
