Live Recordings On 180g Vinyl Extended 3LP Version!
Remastered!


Driven by an entirely deeper dynamic than most pop artists, David Bowie inhabited a very special world of extraordinary sounds and endless vision. Unwilling to stay on the treadmill of rock legend and avoiding the descent into ever demeaning and decreasing circles of cliché, Bowie wrote and performed what he wanted, when he wanted.

Bowie's second live album was recorded during the Isolar II world tour and released in 1978. The album's tracks were culled from concerts in Philadelphia, Providence and Boston in late April and early May 1978.

"...Live, the new material comes clearly into focus: it's as if the built-in drama of concert presentation has given these songs the added dimensions they needed. The long instrumental, "Warszawa," boasts an icy magnificence, and "Speed of Life" bounces along as merrily as some imagined, futuristic Pepsi-Cola jingle. The whole of side four ("'Heroes,'" "What in the World," "Blackout," "Beauty and the Beast") is almost perfect, as Bowie plays — and plays with — the role of a Sinatra-like romantic crooner. There's also a raucous, very funny version of "TVC 15," with singer and band trading yodels like mad mountaineers on a binge.

"Shelving his recent "I'm just an average bloke with a synthesizer in me pocket" pose, Bowie here presents himself as a superbly professional entertainer — and one whose graceful clarity is a welcome antidote to the messy hash of 1974's David Live. Whether he'll be able to merge this stance with the avant-garde experimentalism of his current music is still uncertain. But I can't think of another performer with sufficient bravery to challenge a rock audience to sit still long enough to watch him try."
- Rolling Stone, November 30, 1978
