The taper bought a Sony MD3 unit at the time, and he was experimenting taping with it. These were the days when setting levels were a new thing. The recording itself, I think, for 1990, is very good. Not the best of the tour, but you have to consider the venue, the Forum, which was a dark, old, bad sounding arena. In fact this might have been one of the last gigs there. In any event, my tapes were damaged unfortunately, just a minor thing where the tapes were eaten and I had to repair them. The good news is that it has had very little effect overall. If someone remasters this, they may be able to make it sound even better. As it is, it’s decent, very low generation, and complete. So my thanks to the taper. I do realize there is a SB of this show, but this audience recording makes a nice complement.

David Bowie Tour band 1990 – Sound+Vision Tour
Bowie specifically chose a smaller band for the tour, saying in a contemporary interview that “It’s a much smaller sound. It’s not quite as orchestrated as any of the other tours. The plus of that is that there is a certain kind of drive and tightness that you get with that embryonic line-up, where everybody is totally reliant on the other two or three guys, so everybody gives a lot more”
David Bowie – vocals, guitar, saxophone[
