I find this a beautiful CD, of a RADIO SHOW, that was broadcast at the end of Bowie's first american tour. At that point, the SPIDERS were fresh, the material wasnt played to the point of tired repetition. If you compare this Cd, to the soundtrack to the movie ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE SPIDERS FROM MARS, you become amazed at the difference in sound. For one thing, the playing here is tight, concise, and energetic. On the movie soundtrack, from the END of the spider's history, what you hear is sloppy, dull playing. If you want to hear EARLY Bowie live, and your time machine is broken, so you cant go back to hear it in person, then for now, this is the next best thing. IF you can find it, buy it.
