There are basically 3 types of releases floating around of this FM broadcast:
1. “Milton Keynes Live” (Bow 003-004)
“All Time Model“, Minotauro version and the HG bonus CD of release HUG293DVD.
The HG version is an analog copy of the above, and the 3 others are almost identical.
2. Pre-FM Austereo
This is CD made for the Austereo Radio Network.
Feedthegoat uploaded this (un-tracked) to Bowie Station wrongly marked as “Milton Keynes Live”. That version will be taken off BS soon.
The Wardour release “Milton Keynes 1990 2nd Night” (Wardour-198) is an inferior copy of Austereo with reduced bass and midtones.
It was a hot summer’s day back in 1990 that a crowd of 60,000 gathered at the Milton Keynes Bowl to watch David Bowie in concert.
As temperatures soared fans were treated for dehydration, sun burn and heat exhaustion. It was the second time that David Bowie has played Milton Keynes.
It was billed as a farewell as Bowie said it would be the last time he would perform his hit songs of the past three decades. The concert was also attend by fellow musicians Dave Stewart of The Eurythmics and Siobhan Fahey of Bananarama and Shakespeare’s Sister.
“Bowie always someone who’s kept skirting around the edge and because of that you can learn a lot from him.
“He’s always experimenting.”
– DAVE STEWART, MUSICIAN
“I think he’s spawned a whole generation of pop stars. He’s one of my heroes.
“I enjoyed it – I was out there dancing with the rest of them,”
– SIOBHAN FAHEY, MUSICIAN
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”
