soundboard
Lineage: Silver –> EAC –> WAV –> FLAC 8 –> MWP

Download: FLAC/MP3
Notes from the original uploader: The sound quality is quite good, being a soundboard recording from the early seventies. Unfortunately there are a couple of glitches throughout the disc that are on my original.

Interestingly this disc is reviewed on the excellent Bassman site (http://www.algonet.se/~bassman/bootlegs/91/hmv.html) but although the serial number and the artwork are exactly the same and I am absolutely certain I have an original silver, his tracklisting differs from mine. The tracklisting on the depicted artwork there shows the actual tracks on my disc and does include the “orgy instuctions” and not “Rebel Rebel” and “Panic in Detroit” as Bassman claims.

Info: An interesting read about this last Ziggy concert is to be found at The Ziggy Stardust Companion (http://www.5years.com/Retire.htm)
The Jeff Beck tracks were never officially released due to royalty/copyright issues.

  1. This is a totally different (and superior) mix to the film soundtrack. Not complete of course. I’ve read that this may have come from a Canadian TV broadcast back in the day.

  2. The so called Wicca orgy (over 8 mins long on the LP I had), has been used as a filler track, along with Groucho Marx singing, on other Bowie bootlegs from the time. Ripping off the fans was very common with bootlegs in those days as you could not hear before you bought.
