August '72 Bowie staged a couple of special shows known as "The Ziggy
Stardust Shows", including the Lindsey Kemp mime troup and a specially
built stage. This is a release of the only known tape of one of these shows.
The sound quality is so-so, but it doesn't matter. The tape ends in the
beginning of MOONAGE DAYDREAM, and I'm sure that at least ROCK'N'ROLL SUICIDE
was played too? The bonus tracks are mostly BBC recordings, but some studio
outtakes as well. One song has never been available on disc before, and
that is SOMETHING HAPPENS. It sounds like it was recorded around '71. The
other odd song is DON'T BE AFRAID, which only has been available on the
FROM THE 70'S (1984) before. Here
it is presented in better sound quality. The three last songs are not mentioned
on the cover. A great Australian release!
