what in my opinion makes this recording great is the atmosphere of the set, especially during more quiet passages. You can almost materialize how the fans are reaching out their arms to touch David. Amongst others there are great versions of Time, Jean Genie/Love Me Do and especially Let’s Spend The Night Together with a big portion of Mike Garson’s piano (who “is not really a Spider” according to David’s band introduction). And what a nice transition from Wild Eyed Boy.. to All The Young Dudes.
“We’re gonna play a blues song and it’s from Lou Reed”. Bowie Said in a flat voice after Waiting for the Man.
