Sound Quality: Much noise ,dull ,but still good listened to
The audience is barely heard,probably because this is an open-air concert. Only when Bowie says “Good evening,I’m David Bowie and this one’s called Changes” there is a short moment of massive screaming.
During Waiting For the Man there is a sudden bang which frightens you out of your wits when you’re listening through earphones! It is firework,and throughout the rest of the concert firecrackers are being let off.
During Panic in Detroit and Diamond Dogs something happens to the tape: it sounds as though the original tape was folded or twisted during re-taping. By the way,the whole middle part including the drum solo is missing.
During Changes a large part of the audience got up from their chairs,for at the end of the song someone is heard shou ting “Hey,sit down!”. Much screaming after Rebel Rebel too,and when the band has returned to the stage for Jean Genie,Stacy Heydon stops to tune his guitar for a moment. Towards the end of the song a stop during which Bowie rapidly names the days of the week; then they go on again.

Oh, and by the way. I was at this gig. The International Amphitheater was a very large hall.
Not an open outdoor facility. I think seating was about 10,000.
