According to Bill Wyman, the 2nd show at Oshawa 1979 (which this torrent features) was a lot better than the 1st one.
Which makes me very grateful that there’s no good sounding recordings of the 1st show (only a piss poor recording exists of the 1st show)
Because….this 2nd show at Oshawa is a complete riot – it’s impossible to be “serious” when listening to the performance Rolling Stones and New Barbarians gave that afternoon.
The whole show is filled with mistakes from the band – Ronnie and Keith is obviously drunk as skunks – and unlike now……Jagger is drunk as well! (no need to even mention John Belushi – who introduces the show…..he’s in another dimension)

Just listen to “Respectable” – if you like to hear “the greatest R&R band in the world” being “the most out-of-it R&R band in the world”

It’s interesting to know that during “Jumpin Jack Flash” – the bass player of New Barbarians (Stanley Clarke) joined Rolling Stones.
And – due to recent published photos; he also starred on “Miss You” !
That’s quite unique. Not many people have been allowed on-stage with the Rolling Stones during the years, apart from vocals.
I would not blame Bill Wyman if he didn’t bother to be the only bass player on stage that night. I wouldn’t even blame him for leaving the entire show, and have a quiet cup of tea instead.

I’m uploading this bootleg, as it is the BEST source for this show. And…there’s a *new* release from “Godfather records” which feature the Rolling Stones part of this show. I haven’t heard that “Godfather” bootleg – but as always….Godfather copy other bootlegs, and then tweaken the sound, with EQ
So save your money – and get the best source of this must-have show here.

Notes for set 1

This set is taken from the two-night stand David Bowie gave at the Montreal Forum in 1983. Each show during this Serious Moonlight tour had two sets with a 20-minute intermission, resulting in over 90 two hour-plus concerts in 15 countries in 1983.
After a period of releasing dark, more experimental albums such as Low, The Lodger and Scary Monsters in collaboration with Brian Eno while living as a single man in Berlin, Germany, a string of only semi-successful commercial hits and battling a well-publicized cocaine addiction, David Bowie overcame his demons and teamed up with Chic member and producer, Nile Rodgers. The result was 1983’s Let’s Dance, a commercial record that most critics continue to regard as one of his best.
Smiling and obviously happy with his newfound artistic muse, David Bowie greeted a sold out Montreal forum on this night, and launched into a brilliant show full of both hits from Let’s Dance and some of the more radio-friendly tracks he had done during his Berlin sojourn. Fronting a killer band, Bowie began the evening with three lesser known hits – “Look Back In Anger,” “Breaking Glass” and “Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps)” – before launching into “Rebel, Rebel,” his 1974 hit single from the Diamond Dogs LP. This tour reunited Bowie with guitarist Earl Slick, who had replaced Mick Ronson for the Diamond Dogs recording sessions. Slick delivers the rock edge that had been missing from his music made during the Berlin years. The band is propelled by former Chic/Power Station drummer Tony Thompson, who, along with members of the Tower of Power horn section, helps make this one of the best backing bands in his long musical career.
The majority of the set is essentially a collection of Bowie hits that includes “Heroes,” “Life on Mars?,” “Fashion” and his two big radio hits from Let’s Dance: the title track and the ever infectious “China Girl.” Other highlights include Bowie’s version of the classic 1967 Pretty Things hit, “Sorrow,” (which he originally recorded for 1973’s Pin Ups record) and his modern re-make of The Velvet Underground classic “White Light, White Heat.”

Notes on set II

Actually the second half of a single show, this recording begins with Bowie offering a compelling version of “Station To Station,” the title track from the 1976 album of the same name, to open the second set. From the moment he sings the initial line: “…the return of the thin white duke…” the crowd is all his – on their feet, and reveling in the homecoming. From there, things only escalate. He then launches into a powerful version of “Cracked Actor,” a tune from 1973’s Aladdin Sane, drawing a special roar from the audience when he delivers the controversial line “…suck baby suck, give me your head…” Leading a monumental, 10-piece band, he grooves through a collection of mostly hit songs that includes “Space Oddity” (his first hit single), “Young Americans” (his first dance hit), “Fame” (which he co-wrote with John Lennon) and a trio of all-out rockers: “Cat People,” “Putting Out Fire” and “Jean Genie.” This tour only featured one song from his legendary Ziggy Stardust LP, “Star” – but it’s a memorable one, nonetheless. Noticeably absent from the show was the usual Bowie show-stopper “Suffragette City,” but he more than makes up for it with what would have been, back then, a mix of classic and modern Bowie. Among the other highlights are a version of “Modern Love,” which kicks like a mule, and a spunky version of The Who classic “I Can’t Explain.” A must for all Bowie fans; proof that, no matter what the persona, the man could rock out with the best of them.

SHN’s created by Greg Hurwitt, phobos@quik.com. Notes on SHN creation:

I started with seed discs kindly supplied by Stu Hanson from the BUDD mailing list. Discs were ripped using EAC V0.9pb11 two times and checksums compared to insure perfect rip.

The following edits were then made using Cool Edit 2000:

– removed four light clicks at t8 5:29
– removed click at t9 2:13
– removed clicks at previous track boundaries

Tracks were split using CD Wave V1.62, and sector boundaries verified using shntool V1.01. SHN’s were created (with seek information embedded) using mkwACT V0.97b1.

The following flaws are present on this seed:

– t3 3:45, left channel dropped
– t3 6:58-7:04, right channel dropped
– t3 8:04, digi-static
– t5 0:01, digi-static
– t5 0:38-0:41, left channel dropped
– t8 0:23, very light digi-static
– t9 2:24, distortion
– t10 8:59, very light digi-static
