4 stars I really liked this live album while it came out some ages ago. So much better than the rather average "David Live". And for once, I would say that one of the many later releases, representing the true track list is a better choice, just thanks to this and it should be your only worry if ever you are interested in a live album of the man.

The original album was a straight cut of his last three albums to (that) date PLUS a whole Ziggy side. You might know that I am keen to this.don't you? But the sequence was rather shaky. The new 2005 release is more appropriate and closer to .reality. To my likings as well.

Some additional songs but not always great like "Alabama Song" makes it a best buy of course. My only problem would be why it was not released as such primarily (I'm not even talking about the bonus tracks which might have been a physical space problem). But we know this Bowie disease of re-re-re releasing the same work all over again. It made him rich. Fair for him. But I just HATE this habit.

Since I consider three of the albums highly represented here as masterpieces ("Ziggy", "Station To Station" and "Low") , I have always praised this live album.

David was in good shape and music was splendid. Some disappointments though. A couple of my preferred "Low" songs were not featured ("Subterraneans" and "Sound And Vision") and the three tracks from "Station" are rather cut down.

Four stars.
