A good tape:
Intro :”Liebe Freunde – zum ersten Mal nach funf Jahren wieder auf der Buhne: David Bowie und sein Band” ,George Sinuns announces.
“How are You?” Bowie asks after Star and the reply is a lot of yelling and ‘woo’-ing – there is a great deal of that on this tape. Bowie says “Ich wollte euch meine band vorstellen” and then starts introducing the band. When it is Carlos Alomar’s turn Bowie makes a slip, mixing up Carlos and Carmine: “Guitar Carm … Cal … Carlos ….. . haha … Alomar”. Thats not sure what exactly happened,but the audience cheer and they think Bowie was doubling up with laughter,unable to go on,for Carlos takes over and introduces the remainder of the band,including himself! When Carlos is ready Bowie – pulling himself together – says “And I think I’m David Bowie”. Then he kicks the globe into the stadium: “I think that’s yours”. A very good tape.

Inexplicable gap in crowd noise between Star and Heroes – removed with no ill effect.
Some fluttering between the channels at the start of Sorrow. Left alone, as couldn’t really hear anything.
Couple of small gaps in crowd noise after Cat People. Removed flawlessly.
Gap between China Girl and Scary Monsters. Removed, but clips count-in to Scary Monsters. Coincident with tape flip.
Two small gaps in crowd noise after Space Oddity. Removed flawlessly.
Drop-out in crowd noise between Young Americans and TVC15. Left alone, but clips the start of TVC15.
Two gaps in TVC 15 removed: one @ 1:49, the other @ 2:32. First has minimal impact, second seems to lose a couple of seconds.
Tape flip between Fame and Stay (encore break). Fade out is on the source.
Cut, with volume drop, in crowd noise between Stay and The Jean Genie is on the source and has been left alone.
