If you liked early Bowie

After the Spiders from Mars broke up Bowie created a masterpiece "Diamond Dogs" and was working on Station to Staion when this show was recorded. The sound is incredible and you can catch Bowie before he moved into the Philly soul xound of "young American".No doubt replicating the complex musical score of "Diamond Dogs " was not easy but Bowie knocks it out of the park. I was never as fan of" David Live" because he had gone way to far from the energy and sounds of the Spiders from Mars albums but this live show catches Bowie at his best and the songs are very accurate to the Albums.

Legendary Show.

If may think if you own "David Live" then this isn't necessary. As great as "David Live" is, this is plenty different and perhaps a more realistic document of the Diamond Dogs tour, before the "plastic soul" started to permeate DB. This show delivers some of his finest performances and thankfully it was documented.

About David Bowie

Everyone has a David Bowie that they fell in love with first—the otherworldly outsider Ziggy Stardust, the electronic adventurer, the wild-eyed glam pioneer, the enigmatic storyteller. But it was Bowie's ability to reinvent himself so vividly that captivated us again and again. Driven by boundless imagination, David Bowie was a multifaceted music icon, a social provocateur, a force in fashion, and a gifted actor whose unique personas and perspectives traveled with him through the decades. From the moment his homesick astronaut captured the spotlight in the late ‘60s to his exploratory, jazz-influenced Blackstar almost 50 years later, he excelled and innovated with turns in pop, glam, punk, soul, hard rock, and electronic music. And even though Bowie released vital albums throughout his life—and will forever embody the most artful edge of rock ’n’ roll—he was more than just the music he made. Bowie's fearlessness inspired us to celebrate the complexity and beauty of being completely ourselves.
