The tape has several cuts during Width Of A Circle, Moonage Daydream and cuts off before R’n’R Suicide is finished. The sound changes already during Let’s Spend the Night together. Then again during Moonage Daydream and slightly at Jean Genie. Again at Wating For The Man and the last 2 tracks.

Not a bad recording even if the original tape is sounding quite dull and the several changes in sound. After EQ there is some hiss but still very listenable.
The show has some historic value as it was the last concert in the UK before Bowie went on his 2nd US tour.

“Ladies and gentlemen,please welcome,just back from their highly Successful Tour through America,David Bowie and the Spiders!” the announcer calls. It is a rea] good show. Bowie is in high spirits,now and then he giggles and after Width of a Circle he enthusiastly calls : “Good evening Preston!” which is met by a moderate response from the audience. “That was called Thp. Width of a Circle. This is an old one,for Us any­ way” Bowie says, and continues to play the rest of the reper­toire. Until after Suffragette City he says: “Thank you,good­ night” and,together with the band,leaves the stage. But the fans want more,and they certainly come into their own for Bowie plays not only Rock & Roll Suicide,but also Waiting For the Man and Starman as encore! “OK,this is our very last night on tour,so we’ll do a few extra numbers,alright?”.
” … Alright”?
