Google Books has added the complete run of Billboard Magazine to it's archive, here's one of three nice reviews/articles I've come across so far, others posted elsewhere. Take a look, who knows what you may find? Very Happy

Review of Ungano's show from issue dated 29th August 1970, by Fred Kirby.

"Iggy and the Stooges returned to Ungano's Aug. 18 and the Elektra Records artist was as intense and erotic as ever. The club was full as this group is picking up quite an underground following.

Iggy, with his jeans more tattered, sang, screamed, crawled, danced, played, mouthed suggestive and obscene comments, gyrated, cavorted, coaxed, demanded and, in short, gave a complete performance with heavily sexual overtones.

The group is even more overpowering than before with the addition of Steve Mackay on saxophone. He added to the performance's high pitch with lead guitarist Ron Asheton and bass guitarist Zeke Zettner, another new Stooge, using feedback effectively in wave after wave of sound. Drummer Scott Asheton also contributed to the units power.

However, the story was Iggy, a young performer who has to be seen to be believed. Unfortunately, that also creates a problem since perfect vantage is almost impossible as he directs his energies towards various members of the audience, often while not standing. "Dirt," from the Stooges forthcoming Elektra album, was among the top numbers"

Thanks for this Petrie Terrace. Just makes one yearn a bit more for a recording of this show. I am totally intrigued to know what the Stooges of this period sounded like.
