‘Oh! You Pretty Things’ was not broadcast, and “does not remain on archive” according to the notes of Bowie At The Beeb. This show has a long bootleg history: nearly the entire transmission (only small parts of John Peel’s introductions are missing) was released already in 1978 on Ziggy 2 (Dragonfly Tune In 002). Queen Bitch/The Supermen/Looking For A Friend/Kooks/Song For Bob Dylan/It Ain’t Easy were released on a BBC transcription disc called Pick Of The Pops For Your DJó349 (128511-S), while the “Bowie At The Beeb” broadcast re-aired ‘Bombers’, ‘Looking For A Friend’, ‘Almost Grown’ and ‘Kooks’. The complete show (minus ‘Oh! You Pretty Things’), taken from the NMC set, appeared on Kiss The Viper’s Fang (EDB 002).
Bowie At The Beeb features Bombers/Looking For A Friend/Almost Grown/Kooks/Andy Warhol/It Ain’t Easy. It’s interesting to note that Queen Bitch/The Supermen/Looking For A Friend/Kooks/Song For Bob Dylan/It Ain’t Easy were released on the BBC transcription disc BBC Pick Of The Pops For Your DJó349 in stereo; all other sources are in mono.
Identifiers: although some of the songs were repeated in other BBC sessions (e.g. ‘The Supermen’, ‘Queen Bitch’), this was a live set and all the tracks can be identified by the audience politely clapping after each song, or by the guest singers.
