Prog Reviewer
5 stars Now available separately after receiving its official debut on the Who Can I Be Now? boxed set, this set finally gives a proper release to a stellar performance that had previously been widely bootlegged.

Quite simply, the Nassau Coliseum show from 1976 is absolutely brilliant. Most of Station to Station is played - all the songs but for Golden Years - and Bowie shows a deft hand at picking material from his albums from Hunky Dory up to Young Americans to complement the material, as well as a well-executed cover of Waiting For the Man (one of Bowie's Velvet Underground favourites). Yes co-founder Tony Kaye adds a little twist of his own on keyboards, and the band in general is on peak form; the sound quality is, by and large, excellent, save for a mild dip in quality during Life On Mars? and Five Years - those two songs being a quiet interlude in the middle of an otherwise fast-paced and cataclysmically loud show. The opening performance of Station to Station has to be heard to be believed.

Warthur | 5/5 |
