So I succumbed to peer pressure of some sort and bought David Live, the bigger better Tony Visconti 2005 mix. It’s got more songs than the original which I’ve never heard.
There’s a lot of David Sanborn on here for sure.
It’s ragged, it’s loose and simultaneously tight.
I have avoided this for so long it seems because of the cringeworthy picture on the front. It’s definitely a step down from previous albums image wise. This was my totally shallow teenage reason for never buying it or even listening to it.
Let’s just be honest it’s a crap album sleeve. It is however a good collection of Bowie. I find myself wondering why it all looks so normal when it’s the Diamond Dogs tour goin on. I woods really want to see a little more post apocalyptic vibe from the cover.
That’s a lot of great songs on there definitely worth the price of admission.
