David Bowie 1973-07-03 Hammersmith Odeon, London, England


David Bowie - His Master's Voice (David Bowie and the Spiders from Mars' Last Stand featuring Jeff Beck)
Hammersmith Odeon, London, England. July 3th 1973
Label: Living Legend LRCD 116
Audio Source: soundboard
Lineage: Silver --> EAC --> WAV --> FLAC 8 --> MWP
Number of Discs: 1
Artwork: included
Total running time: 49m 10s

Notes: The sound quality is quite good, being a soundboard recording from the early seventies. Unfortunately there are a couple of glitches throughout the disc that are on my original.

Interestingly this disc is reviewed on the excellent Bassman site (http://www.algonet.se/~bassman/bootlegs/91/hmv.html) but although the serial number and the artwork are exactly the same and I am absolutely certain I have an original silver, his tracklisting differs from mine. The tracklisting on the depicted artwork there shows the actual tracks on my disc and does include the "orgy instuctions" and not "Rebel Rebel" and "Panic in Detroit" as Bassman claims.

Info: An interesting read about this last Ziggy concert is to be found at The Ziggy Stardust Companion (http://www.5years.com/Retire.htm)
The Jeff Beck tracks were never officially released due to royalty/copyright issues.

  1. When these were pressed on vinyl, the bootleggers often added non related tracks to fill the whole side of the pressing. I have this on original vinyl with the wicca orgy track lasting for about 6 minutes as the last track on side 2. I also have a pressing of the Santa Monica show with a track on the first side being a song sung by Groucho Marx dropped in for no reason. At the time the Amazing Kornyphone record label did a lot of pressing like this with none related music dropped in. A sort of adulterated bootleg. Bit like cutting weed with with other herbs.
