DJ John Peel introduces the songs and gives the auclience same information on Bowie. The audience in the studio is limited and there is soft clapping af ter each song.

Supermen was performed in the acous­ tic version wich Bowie on 12-string guitar

Looking For a Friend can also be found as a studio version on the Hunky Dory Outtakes tape,but this one is the only live version.

David Bowie’s breakthrough album Hunky Dory wouldn’t come out until December, but this concert gives a lot of previews of coming attractions. Big changes were coming down. The Man Who Sold World, which had been released only months before, laid the groundwork for what was to come. It could be said this concert, hosted by none other than John Peel and recorded at the BBC’s Paris Theatre in London, was a gestation period for Glam as it was to become. Six months later, the whole scene would change.

So this could be considered historic – probably on the par with Bowie’s Glastonbury performance, which occurred three days later, on June 23, 1971.

Bowie enthusiasts have probably heard this one thousands of times. It’s still exciting to listen to, just to know what was around the corner.

You really do need to play this one loud.
