One of those boots where the cover picture is from a different era to the actual recording, I find that most annoying. Thankfully the content on this set makes up for that. Recorded live in Gothenburg on June 4th 1978, we have the complete show in very good sound quality, with a few bonus tracks thrown in just as filler.
-- Savage Jaw

Finally a release of the complete concert in Gothenburg 1978. For the first time is STAY / TVC 15 / REBEL REBEL available on disc. The sound quality is excellent and even better than on any earlier issues on vinyl or CD! The only sad thing is the cut in STAY, but it probably comes from the master tape? The excellent sound quality and the fact that this is the complete concert, makes this CD a true must!

OK friends of Dime, here is a nearly complete SBD gig from Rotterdam 13.05.76.

The + marked tracks are from tape (I seeded that tape version here before ).

This has not the best quality, but is more complete than the vinyl bootleg

"Cocaine Adds Life".

Now I remastered the 3 tracks from the tape & did speedcorrection (which I didn¥t make

when I posted it here).

The rest of this torrent come from that vinyl bootleg "Cocaine Adds Life",

which I remastered too.

It¥s a special gig with a strange atmosphere.

One of my absolute favourite Bowie gigs ever !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Only because of that band intro its worth to d/l.

Info :

From DAVID BOWIE: The Concert Tapes:
This tape was recorded by RCA and has somehow filtered through from RCA to fans. It contains the same songs as Dusseldorf, minus Queen Bitch, which is missing. After a five minutes drum solo during Panic in Detroit, Bowie introduces the band: Good evening Rotterdam. I'd like firstly to introduce my band Raw Moon and I'll introduce the personnel. On keyboards the original Yes keyboard player Tony Kayle. On guitar, co-writer with myself and John Lennon on Fame Carlos Alomar (Tony Kaye sets in the first notes of Changes). On percussion Dennis Davis, on bass guitar George Murray and on guitar Stacy Heydon...Tony, Tony, hold it a minute! Tony stops playing. Uhm, how many of you here speak English?.. You're very kind, because we're very rude and we don't speak your language but we do speak English. I'd like to tell you that most of us in this band tonight are very ill, haha, with bronchitis, but we wanna try and rock 'n roll as much as we can...and my name is David Bowie, and this is a bronchial version of Changes. The song is played excellently, ending with a magnificent bass solo by George Murray. At the end of Jean Genie Bowie says: We'll see some of you tomorrow! This is a fantastic concert; it is not without reason that it got so many favourable reviews. Elly de Waard for instance wrote: "David Bowie greater than great". The only disadvantage of this tape (at least to me) is that RCA have hardly recorded the audience's plaudits. This is only natural, but all the atmosphere is lost. But apart from this, the tape is grand. There also excists an audience tape of this show.
