David Bowie was at his best in the early Seventies through 1980. That is of course my opinion, but I would venture a guess that many Bowie fans would agree. The fact is, for Bowie fans, new releases from this era would be as must-have as crack is to an addict.
Well, get ready for a dose of Bowie crack.
No, not like plumbers crack, I mean the addict kind.
David Bowie, Live Santa Monica ’72, is being released on June 30th, 2008, as both a CD and as an 2 disk LP. I am already getting excited!
There was also a Live Santa Monica 1972 released in 1995.
The set will have 18 songs recorded at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium from October 20th, 1972. This was the Ziggy stardust tour.
This would be around the tenth American show for us and you can hear that we are all pretty high on ourselves.” Bowie tells NME, “We train wreck a couple of things, I miss some words and sometimes you wouldn’t know that pianist Mike Garson was onstage with us but overall I really treasure this bootleg. Mick Ronson is at his blistering best.
Get ready for this release, it should really kick some butt. Hopefully not a butt full of plumber’s crack though.
Here is the track listing
‘Hang On To Yourself’
‘Life On Mars?’
‘The Width Of A Circle’
‘John, I’m Only Dancing’
‘I’m Waiting For The Man’
‘The Jean Genie’
‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Suicide’
