Sound Quality : noise ,dull ,but still good listened to
Fairly average quality audience from Chicago, got this one years ago so it might be lower generation?
I find the first half far more listenable than the second half.
Notable because Starman is played. There are a few minor cuts here and there, but nothing major. At the end you can hear some bars of Rock N’Roll Suicide, which indicates it was played, but the tape cuts out and then comes back to the ‘outro’ recording.
“Thank you very much,were gonna do a number from the Hunk Dory Album it’s called Life on Mars“ Bowie tells the audience who are reasonably enthusiastic and clap along with many a song.Afrer Five fears Bowie gets his 12-string guitar shouldered for Space Oddity,and meanwhile people from the audience call out the names of their favorite songn,e.g. Andy Warhol and Saviour Machine. Space Oddity Starts and the audience quite enjoy that too.It is splendidly performed with Robson playing the second part.
At the beginning of Andy Warhol Bowie stops and a lot of screaming of the audience can he heard. Something is happening with over-enthusiastic fans or something of the sort; at least Bowie soon continues.
This time Bowie does not announce My Death and when it Starts no one applauds,for no one knows it. But the audience are quite silent while the song lasts and gives it a great applause when it is over.
To Moonage Daydream Bowie.says “This is a number by Ziggy” and for the first line e he sings – off key – “Well I’m an ace invader”! Not very successful,so he stops immediately and starts anew. “This is a number from Ziggy,it’s Called Moonage Daydream“ .
“Thank you!” he calls gratefully when he is called back for Jean Genie. “We’ve done some recording and this is one we recorded in New York,and it’s for a friend of ours,Iggy Pop. He’s not here tonight so it’s for you here,it’s called Jean Genie“. After this song there is Rock & Roll Suicide.
