        Archive of Iggy Pop original publicity material, tour itineraries, original photos, and related correspondence

      An archive of publicity and other material related to Iggy Pop tours in 1977. Most of the material seems to come from Pop's PR firm, De Witt Public Relations, and includes publicity photos by important rock photographers, press clippings, concert itineraries, etc. An interesting overview of the immediate post-Stooges solo career of Iggy Pop. After the Stooges broke up (for the second time) in 1975, Pop went to Berlin with his friend, supporter, and sometimes collaborator David Bowie in order to tame his drug addiction. In 1976 he accompanied Bowie on tour, his first experience of large scale professional touring. In 1977 he signed with RCA to pursue a solo career, co-writing songs with Bowie, and touring extensively, often with Bowie in support on keyboards. His two albums from that period, The Idiot and Lust for Life, both co-produced by Bowie, were his most critically acclaimed as a solo artist. It's a little hard to overestimate the influence of Iggy on punk music and what follows, but we'll try. While his stage antics (rolling in broken glass and smearing himself with various substances) often overshadowed his music, his brand of hard rock, accompanied by the Stooges, and itself influenced by the MC5, became a prime proto-punk source that influenced and helped inform the mid-70s transition of hard rock into punk. Reportedly he performed the first intentional stage dive (as opposed to a long list of performers who would either just fall off stage because they were drunk or drugged; or in a few instances because they were preoccupied with assaulting an audience member). At any rate this is interesting and contemporary nuts-and-bolts primary source material from an important figure in the early days of an equally important transformation in rock music. A detailed list available upon request. .

        In Patagonia [hybrid proof].

      Summit, [1977]. - 204 pp. Advance Proof is an unusual "hybrid" of the 1st U.K edition (1977) with elements of the 1st U.S. Ekdition (1978). Modifications include: 1) the U.K. dust jacket is missing (in its place is the U.S. proof d.j.); 2) the pictorial upper and lower free end papers are excised from the U.K. edition and then affixed to the respective upper and lower past downs of the U.S. edition (so no illustrations appear); and 3) the black and white photographs after pp. 60, 76, 124 and 140 are also excised out. The U.S. publisher's dust jacket states "Probable publication: June 1978" and includes reviews by Paul Theroux, Malcolm Deas, Maurice Richardson, S.W. Lambert and Nicholas Wollaston (all U.K. reviews) which do not appear on the U.K. dust jacket but do appear on the U.S. The U.S. edition lacks illustration: i.e.; neither are there photos inside nor are there pictorial end papers. There are numerous hand written marginal notes in pen, concluding with, "Reviewed for Quest Magazine; Michael Mewshaw" on the verso of the last leaf; 8.75 x 5.75 inches. A very interesting and convoluted In Patagonia "proof." Air mail letter from Mewshaw (1995) corroborating being sent this proof and suggestions where to obtain additional information, laid in (addressee fogged out by seller). Evidence of a paper clip on the front d.j. panel; d.j.; spine sunned. See additional images provided. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Original watercolor painting of a tree.

      1977 1977 - A delightful 15 by 11-inch painting of a large gnarled tree, its branches forming a leafy canopy over a portion of meadow grown thick with green grasses and pink thistle. The tree is painted with a wooden sign nailed crookedly to its trunk, bearing the artist's signature and date. Chamberlain studied with Barry Moser and Leonard Baskin and, from the mid-1970s to the mid-1980s, ran the Chamberlain Press. Her work has illustrated numerous texts, from Aesop and the Brothers Grimm to Charles Simic and many miniature books. Matted in gray and set in a narrow navy lacquered wood frame. Slight scratching to frame, else very fine.
