David Bowie RIP

Britain woke up to the news on Monday 11 January 2016 that David Bowie died of liver cancer in New York the night before, 10 January 2016. This was just two days after his 69th birthday and the release of his final studio album Black Star.

I’d been a fan from my teenage years in the 1970s and at one stage, he was perhaps my favourite artist or band.

This news sent me scurrying back to his classic live albums from his prime time in the 1970s that I’d strangely been ignoring for too long:

David Bowie Serious Moonlight 1983

Serious Moonlight is a recording of the David Bowie concert in Vancouver on September 12, 1983.

It is available as an official live DVD and an unofficial live album CD. I would like David Bowie to tidy up this mess and release it as an authorised CD as there is definitely a place for it within the group of David Bowie live albums.

I haven’t been featuring live concert DVDs without an accompanying CD but I thought I’d make an exception. I’m not sure about the legality of the Serious Moonlight live album but it’s being sold by Play.com and cduniverse.com so I’m guessing that it has a grey status. Legal but not approved by David Bowie.

David Bowie Plays Ziggy Stardust Live

In this article I am going to look at how the tracks on the classic David Bowie album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars have featured in his live albums.

I prefer my music live as you will have gathered. The songs are terrific on the Ziggy Stardust studio album but I feel it lacks a bit of punch that you can only get from a live recording.
