180g Audiophile Vinyl! Mastered by Friday Music's Joe Reagoso & Pressed at RTI!
Iggy Pop continues to be known as one of the original pioneers of the punk rock and underground rock movement of the late sixties and seventies. Thrilling audiences with The Stooges or with his own innovative solo projects, Iggy's iconic history shows a plethora of amazing albums over the last 4 decades, truly creating some of the coolest music ever waxed for the classic rock era.
In 1980, Iggy Pop delivered his hard hitting 80's alternative classic Soldier for Arista Records. Featuring the David Bowie collaboration "Play It Safe", Soldier was a solid effort which continues to be one of his most revered albums to this day. This stunning release featured a good amount of staple Iggy Pop classics like "I'm A Conservative," "Mr. Dynamite," "Dog Food," and the hard rockin' "Take Care of Me". Augmented with powerhouse musicians like Ivan Kral (Patti Smith Group), Glen Matlock (Sex Pistols), Barry Andrews (XTC) and uncredited support from David Bowie and Simple Minds, this amazing '80s power punk classic hasn't been available on vinyl for many decades – until now.
As another installment in the Iggy Pop series, Friday Music proudly announces for the first time ever the stunning 180 gram audiophile vinyl presentation of Soldier by the legendary Iggy Pop. mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Mastering in Hollywood and manufactured at R.T.I., this original Arista Records classic truly reaches great sonic heights in the audiophile vinyl domain. Also included are colorful artwork elements in a first-time gatefold cover, featuring the rare lyric insert art – now a part of the inside LP cover.
