"Some of the bands which have used Agora's recording on their albums include ; Savoy Brown , Rick Derringer , Iggy Pop , and Southside Johnny and The Asbury Dukes" , says LaConti .
Iggy Pop's Agora performance has been issued approximately ten trillion times, in at least one case (Suck on This) as a flat-out bootleg with some tracks officially released on the RCA TV Eye album. There are also a pile of CDs that I've seen (and, at least twice, bought) in record stores that didn't knowingly traffic in bootlegs containing the same performances.
I just played the beginning of the two CDs (Wild Animal and Sister Midnight) through the Surround Master in SQ mode and...honestly, I'm not sure. I think it sounded really good, but I can't tell if that's by accident or if it's really SQ encoded. I tried it in Involve/QS as well and while it was much louder (?) I thought SQ sounded more natural.
If there are any other Iggy fanatics out there who can do the same test, I'd be curious to learn what you hear.
Oh, it's also been reissued within the last few years in a definitely official box set, but I haven't checked that one yet.
