“This is from the Aladdin Sane album, it’s called Cracked Actoris received with hysterical crics from the frantic British audien­ce. This is the first concert in which the substilu­tion for the Quicksand med­ley is played – in my opinion it is less good.


This is from a tape I was told was the master, or lowest gen recording. The rehearsal circulated despite being told I was getting something that hadn’t been distributed at the time I got this, but I’m not sure the gig has?

The last I read on the topic is that the gig recording that circulates is average quality, but the recording here, while incomplete, is a lot better than that – it’s very clear indeed.

Whether or not this is something exclusive or not, let’s get some more Bowie circulating : the more that people seed slightly more unusual items, the more likely that others will follow.

Aside from some more unusual Bowie items (why hang onto them? no-one pays out for such things these days!), can anyone share this?
