Fix notes:

13th April:

Tape flip between Stay and China Girl loses no music, but does lose the band intros.
The source tape cuts out during Heroes, so The Jean Genie and Modern Love are both missing.
Note that the sound on the first disc, from Stay onwards, does deteriorate (to 8/10).

14th April:

Right channel too quiet on first side of tape so volume boosted to balance.
Gaps between Life On Mars?/Blue Jean and Heroes/Pretty Pink Rose removed losing crowd noise only.

Fix notes:

2nd April:

It's apparent that there was over-miking of the floor toms (present on both versions I tried) causing bass rumble frequently throughout.
Tape flip between Queen Bitch and Fashion during tape flip.  Faded on tape, repaired as best as I could.
Fade out between Heroes and The Jean Genie which clips the start of the latter.

3rd April:

Significant disparity in volume between the two channels, with the right channel oversaturated.  Used iZotope RX declipper tool to restore peaks on right channel for whole tape - successful

Joins between Panic and Detroit and Suffragette City, and Fame 90 and Heroes resulted in minor loss of music to start of latter song in each case.  Join between Let's Dance and Stay lost crowd noise only.
Join betweeen Ashes To Ashes and John I'm Only Dancing loses David saying the name of JIOD!

Unpleasant blare at the start of Blue Jean which could not be fixed without being intrusive.  The sound is a little rougher from Heroes onwards and that's on the tape.

Fix notes:

There appears to have been some tape tangle on the first tape.  I removed a small chunk during Changes which was particularly bad, but left the other bits (also again during Changes and during Rebel Rebel, Young Americans and Fame '90) as they were.

Tape flip during Heroes, mended fine.

The sound check is from a completely different source, with sound quality only "fair".

End of Purple Haze is cut on source tape.  Fade out/in to Guitar intro.
Gap removed @ 1:03 in Carlos's Guitar Intro - minimal impact
Gap removed @ 3:57 in Loving The Alien - couple of seconds missing
Another gap removed @ 3:07 in Fashion - couple of seconds missing

Tape flip after Fashion, of which the ending is cut.
No sign of Scary Monsters (if played) on the source tape and the lion's share of All The Madmen is also missing.
Cut between Chant Of The Ever Circling Skeletal Family and 87 & Cry.  Minimal loss of music, and used as the opportunity to split discs.

Cut at 3:30 in Young Americans.  Some music lost, fade-out/in
Tape split during Let's Dance - seamless, but required slight speed adjustment before the split.
End of Let's Dance, dancer intros.  Needed some editing, as taper was speaking into the mic to do level tests.
Interruptions continue into start of Fame, part of which had to be removed.

Sound quality deteriorates for the encores (distorted, static interferenced) on source tape

Notes

Running too fast.  Speed correction with factor of 92%

Before start, two segments of music, presumably from arena ambiance before start.  Omitted.
Tape flip between Fashion and Scary Monsters.  Very tight and clips start of latter.
Tape flip between Time Will Crawl and the band intro.  First few seconds after flip way too loud - reduced to around 60% and clipped worst out.
Tape flip between Fame and Time - encore break crowd noise only.
Further four gaps in crowd noise of encore break, all removed.  Final one clips start of Time.

RE-UP: David Bowie live in Madrid 1987 - 2CD - July 6

DAVID BOWIE
FIRE CAN DRIVE YOU - MADRID 87
LOCATION : MADRID, Estadio Vicente Calderon
DATE : JULY 6TH, 1987
PERSONAL ARTWORK
SOUNDQUALITY : VERY GOOD AUDIENCE


COMMENTS : THE VERY FIRST TIME EVER BOWIE PLAYS IN SPAIN. THIS IS A VERY WARM SHOW WITH A GREAT ATMOSPHERE, AND BOWIE IS IN EXCELLENT MOOD : HE GREETS THE AUDIENCE AND HE EVEN DOES IT IN SPANISH, YELLING AN ENTHUSIASTIC "HOLA, QUE TAL ?" AT THE END OF 'DAY IN DAY OUT'... A REMARKABLE THING IS THAT 'TIME' ISN'T PLAYED THAT NIGHT : THAT HAPPENED OCCASIONALLY DURING THE EUROPEAN TOUR  DEPENDING MAINLY ON THE WEATHER CONDITIONS, RAIN OR WIND. THE LATTER SEEMS PROBABLE AS BLOWS OF WIND CAN BE HEARD AT TIMES THRU THE MICROPHONE...

Another gap between Dancing With The Big Boys and Zeroes, that clips the start of the latter.
Same again between Zeroes and Let's Dance

I got this recording in the late 80s it is not the complete show the first 40 mins is missing it is a pity as it is a very good recording
the first 2 tracks a couple of times the quality goes a bit low etc this i think this is due to the taper hiding the mic or recorder poss from
security but after that it is a great recording.
Ive not seen this on many lists i believe there is a full show version out there in tapers land if anyone has it and can upload it that would be great.

Notes:
JEMS master recording. David's stop for the Seattle area in the newly opened Tacoma Dome for the Serious Moonlight tour. This show was the very first show to be booked at the Tacoma Dome when it first opened. The first artist to perform here though goes to The Tubes who opened for Bowie this night. The recording sounds good but the microphones starts to have issues from Fame until the end of the show so the sound quality drops and fluctuates from that point on.

This is Volume 2 of 6 DVD’s straight from the vaults of the NBC. A total of over 10 hours of recordings from the 1980 Floor Show of which only a mere 45 minutes were actually released in the US. The recordings include dance rehearsals, song rehearsals and much more. These DVD’s contain very rare live performances from David that have never been released in any other form ever before. Bowie's performance on Saturday the 19th October, went on for over 10 hours as each song was performed and filmed over and over. Because of the small size of the Marquee, only two cameras were able to film and so each song was shot, as many as five to six times, to allow for camera re-positioning and the overall satisfaction of Bowie and the film crew. The whole thing was, according to Bowie later, "shot abysmally." The fans, of course, loved the fact that they got to see their hero perform many times over. During the intervals between takes, and despite having just recovered from a recent bout of influenza, Bowie laughs and jokes with the audience and signs autographs. This DVD set is absolutely 100% authentic and a must for every David Bowie fan. The DVD's are recorded region free. All six DVDs make up more than 10 hours from The 1980 Floor Show (The Midnight Special).

This is Volume 1 of 6 DVD’s straight from the vaults of the NBC. A total of over 10 hours of recordings from the 1980 Floor Show of which only a mere 45 minutes were actually released in the US. The recordings include dance rehearsals, song rehearsals and much more. These DVD’s contain very rare live performances from David that have never been released in any other form ever before. Bowie's performance on Saturday the 19th October, went on for over 10 hours as each song was performed and filmed over and over. Because of the small size of the Marquee, only two cameras were able to film and so each song was shot, as many as five to six times, to allow for camera re-positioning and the overall satisfaction of Bowie and the film crew. The whole thing was, according to Bowie later, "shot abysmally." The fans, of course, loved the fact that they got to see their hero perform many times over. During the intervals between takes, and despite having just recovered from a recent bout of influenza, Bowie laughs and jokes with the audience and signs autographs. This DVD set is absolutely 100% authentic and a must for every David Bowie fan. The DVD's are recorded region free. All six DVDs make up more than 10 hours from The 1980 Floor Show (The Midnight Special).

The 1980 Floor Show (a pun on the song "1984" - 19-Eighty-Floor) was the first appearance of David Bowie since his much publicised retirement on 3 July 1973 at the Hammersmith Odeon. It was also to be his last appearance as "Ziggy Stardust". The show itself was a spectacular stage production that was filmed over 3 days, mostly at The Marquee Club, Soho, London for the American NBC TV late night show The Midnight Special. The idea for the show came when Bowie was approached by Burt Sugarman to create something for The Midnight Special rock series. Bowie's idea was a highly theatrical cabaret extravaganza featuring himself and various rock groups from the 60's performing in a futuristic setting. Michael Lipman, a Los Angeles lawyer specializing in the music industry, set up the deal in which Bowie was to have complete artistic control. When news of the forthcoming event became public, the UK newspapers cried that the Americans had netted the "pop scoop of the year" and bemoaned the fact that no clips were to be made available for UK TV.

The result was edited down to fit the one-hour rock series slot and was shown on American NBC-TV on 16 November 1973. Apart from segments for Top of the Pops it has never been fully screened in the UK. While still regularly screened on US TV, the show is still not available commercially in any form. The first day of the 1980 Floor Show was reserved for filming at a studio - while the actual filming at the Marquee was carried out on the 19th & 20th October. Bowie personally chose the setting for the show, after first considering the possibility of a full-scale live concert (rejected by the NBC as too expensive). "There were a lot of clubs to go to in the Soho scene in the 60's but The Marquee was top of the list, because musicians did hang out there, pretending to talk business and picking up gigs - but picking up girls mostly. One of my keenest memories of The Marquee in the '60's was having a permanent erection because there were so many fantastic looking girls in there, it was all tourists, especially in summer, all flocking to London to get an R&B star. My final performance of Ziggy Stardust was at The Marquee. I wanted to go back there because I had so many good memories over the years. We changed the place completely and for 3 days we filmed what became 'The 1980 Floor Show'. I had The Troggs on with me and then got Marianne Faithfull to duet with me on a version of Sonny & Cher's 'I Got You Babe'. I dressed Marianne in a nun's habit with the back cut out and I dressed as the Angel of Death!" - Bowie The Marquee Club itself was a famous London performance venue where Bowie had watched many R & B giants of the 1960s perform and had himself played in the 1960s as a support act. It quickly outgrew its first location, on Oxford Street, and moved to 90 Wardour Street in 1964, where the Rolling Stones, Yardbirds, The Who, Small Faces, Spencer Davis Group and every other important band was showcased, along with Jimi Hendrix, the Byrds, the Lovin' Spoonful and other visiting American bands. It no
longer exists today, having been demolished. While illustrious as a venue, the Marquee in 1973 was small, cramped and shabby and this necessitated a number of enforced changes for the benefit of television. Much to the horror of the Marquee staff and club owner Jack Barrie, the stage and back-drop were completely rebuilt and the walls and ceilings repainted black. Admission to the show was by invitation only and those who attended included 200 democratically selected (by ballot) members of the newly formed International David Bowie Fan Club, rock luminaries, staff and patrons of The Marquee and selected musical press - all keen on seeing Ziggy rise from the grave to perform one last time. Included in this exclusive audience were Angie and Zowie, Tony Visconti and Mary Hopkins, Lionel Bart, Dana Gillespie, Long John Baldry and Wayne County. The show also featured Marianne Faithfull, The Troggs and a Spanish vocal group called Carmen. This was to be the last time that Mick Ronson and Trevor Bolder played with Bowie as Spiders. As well as featuring popular Ziggy material, the show was used to preview PINUPS (1973) and upcoming DIAMOND DOGS (1974) material; namely "1984".

The songs performed were:
1984/Dodo (Bowie)
Sorrow (Bowie)
Bulerias (Carmen)
Everything's Alright (Bowie)
Space Oddity (Bowie)
I Can't Explain (Bowie)
As Tears Go By (Marianne Faithfull)
Time1 (Bowie)
Wild Thing (The Troggs)
The Jean Genie (Bowie)
Rock n Roll Suicide (Bowie) - not broadcast
20th Century Blues (Marianne Faithfull)
I Got You Babe (Bowie/Marianne Faithfull)

Prior to the filming of the very first number, Bowie strode on stage, beamed at the audience and said in a broad South London accent "And what have you lot been up to?" and told them that he was "out of condition". The first song to be filmed was "Everything's Alright" from the Pinups (1973) album. Bowies costume for this number was bright yellow trousers, a purple satin top, black leather jacket and high-heeled boots. All of the costumes for the show were designed by Bowie and old friend Freddie Burretti. Mick Ronson's costume for the show was an all white satin jump-suit. Ronson led the band of Trevor Bolder, Aynsley Dunbar, Mike Garson and Mark Carr Prichard (introduced by Bowie as "Mark Two Rivers, a Mohician from Peage"!). Interestingly, Aynsley Dunbar, the drummer, was originally from The Mojos who had written "Everything's Alright" in the 1960s. A smiling Bowie ended each song with an affectionate pat on Ronson's back. This was to be the last time that Bowie and Ronson were to be on the same stage until they were reunited in Canada in 1983 during the Serious Moonlight Tour.

The Astronettes (not to be confused with the same named dancers at the Rainbow Concert) were Bowie's backing vocals and dance group for the show and consisted of Geoffrey MacCormack, Jason Guess & Ava Cherry.

For "The Jean Genie" - Bowie's fish net and gold hands-costume was altered twice by the film crew. First a gold dummy hand with black varnished nails which covered his private parts was removed, as was a revealing black jockstrap and were covered with a gold briefs and arm slip (as above). The NBC were concerned that the suggestively placed dummy hand would be too shocking for American audiences. The film crew were subsequently instructed to film above Bowie's waist for that number. Other censorship for US TV occurred later when words such as "screw" and "goddam" were edited from the soundtrack. "I did one particular song, can't remember what it was now but I had a strange kind of string knitted costume made with three hands on. Two of them on my chest, looking like I was being gripped from the back...And a third one on my crotch. I nearly started a riot with the Americans. They said: "Oh we can't show that, that's subversive." We went through hell, so I had to take the hand of my crotch. And then of course they didn't like the black pouch piece that was down there, that the hand was stitched to...so I had to change all that. So, like the 'Diamond Dogs' thing that they airbrushed the dick off, I was having more erasure problems. It followed me all through the Seventies.* It's funny that I can remember the costume and not the song, totally indicative of what the time was like." - Bowie (2002)

During "Rock N Roll Suicide" the word "suicide" was bleeped each time it appeared in the song. This was because earlier that year a boy had died in the US trying to imitate part of Alice Coopers stage act where he was hung onstage. Subsequently it was dropped from the final edit by NBC.

For "1984" - Bowie wore a Ziggy cloak which was stripped away by Ava Cherry and Jason Guess to reveal the "keyhole costume."

"Sorrow" was filmed in the studio with Bowie dressed in a white suit singing to Amanda Lear, who with a pole manipulated string-costumed figures on a giant chessboard.

For "I Can't Explain" - Bowie wore a bright red PVC corset, PVC thigh-length stiletto boots and two black chest-hugging feathers and smaller feathers on his wrists (he was The Angel of Death).

For "Time" (The backing track for this song was from Aladdin Sane (1973)) Bowie wore a blue and yellow flaming design half-leotard with cloak as above. The live version of the song at this show is included on RARESTONEBOWIE (1995) and is notable for the (forced?) lyric change (...falls swanking to the floor...).

The last song - "I Got You Babe" was a duet sung with Marianne Faithful and was filmed at about 10pm at night. Bowie warned the audience - "This isn't anything very serious. Its just a bit of fun - we've hardly even rehearsed it." Bowie's costume for this song was the bright red PVC corset, PVC thigh-length stiletto boots and two black chest-hugging feathers (he was The Angel of Death), while Marianne Faithful was dressed as a decadent nun with cowl and a black backless cape, which left her bottom exposed to the audience as she quickly ran off stage at the end of the performance.

"She was wearing a nun's habit with no backside and black stockings. I've got that clip at home, and it is fantastic. But they wouldn't show it in America. It was felt to be beyond the pale. Madonna, eat your heart out!" - Bowie (1993)

About Marianne: Married and a mother at 18 years of age, Faithfull took up with Mick Jagger at 19, endured the Stones' very public Redlands drug bust at 20 (she was arrested wearing nothing but a bearskin rug), and attempted suicide at 21. At 22, Faithfull saw her first original song, "Sister Morphine," yanked off the shelves after two days (the Stones released their version two years later without any fuss). Ironically, Faithfull had used heroin only once before writing the song; by the time it came out, she was a hopeless junkie, her own ambitions overwhelmed by the Rolling Stones juggernaut. The inevitable break-up with Jagger was followed by a decade of disaster in which Faithfull became a junkie living on the streets, her self-destructive behaviour almost preordained: She was the great-niece of Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, author of the late 19th-century novel "Venus in Furs," the source of the term "masochism." But by the mid-'70s, there was the glimmer of a rehabbed image via David Bowie, who sought out Faithfull as a '60s archetype for the 1974 television special tied to the release of his covers album, "Pin Ups." It started the singer on the road to recovery. A few years later, punk revitalised Faithfull -- not so much the music, but the angry attitude, and 1979's "Broken English" unveiled a very different artist, whose once-high, plaintive soprano had slid down a whole octave into dark, husky, cracked contralto with seemingly bottomless vibrato. It was an astonishing resurrection, and 10 years after the disappointment of "Sister Morphine," Faithfull was, for the first time, a respected artist.

This is NOT the FM broadcast. It was taken from a "Reference Tape" of the complete performance. It was recorded to document the 1983 Serious Moonlight Tour.
A planned double album never saw the light of day. "Modern Love" from this set was
used on 1983 EMI single EA 158(UK)/8177(US).

The last 57 seconds of "China Girl" was lost during a sloppy transfer to cassette
in 1995. This has been repaired using a clip from the FM broadcast.

Notes

Inexplicable gap in crowd noise between Star and Heroes - removed with no ill effect.
Some fluttering between the channels at the start of Sorrow.  Left alone, as couldn't really hear anything.
Couple of small gaps in crowd noise after Cat People.  Removed flawlessly.
Gap between China Girl and Scary Monsters.  Removed, but clips count-in to Scary Monsters.  Coincident with tape flip.

Two small gaps in crowd noise after Space Oddity.  Removed flawlessly.
Drop-out in crowd noise between Young Americans and TVC15.  Left alone, but clips the start of TVC15.
Two gaps in TVC 15 removed: one @ 1:49, the other @ 2:32.  First has minimal impact, second seems to lose a couple of seconds.

Tape flip between Fame and Stay (encore break).  Fade out is on the source.
Cut, with volume drop, in crowd noise between Stay and The Jean Genie is on the source and has been left alone.

This is one of the best audience recordings from the Serious Moonlight Tour and it seems to be the complete show. I have made no EQ as this is a very balanced and clear
recording. Each instrument and especially David's voice come across very pronounced. The only things I made is to correct some sound levels and most of the clicks.

It's a great show with David in very good mood and it provides the rarely played Red Sails. I attended the show in Frankfurt on 20.05.1983 which was one of the first of the whole tour.

Description: Soundboard, good quality recording from the archives.  Not as good as today's soundboard's of course but a good listen.  Compare to 'Cool Million.'  Helden's site says Cool Million is audience but I think this is probably a misprint, it is soundboard, no question when you listen to the opening announcement by George Simms.

David Bowie - 830520 - Frankfurt

JTB artwork included

David Bowie Live Frankfurt Festhalle 1983-05-20 AUD copy of master + fills complete show, great recording

I met and traded with the original taper of this show, who lived in Frankfurt at the time.
He gave me a 90 minute cassette copy of his master, which was everything except the last two songs.
He later gave a copy to bootleggers, who produced separate 2LP sets of this show in the USA and Europe.

This is the best sounding rendition of this show you are likely to hear,
unless RG releases his master again in the digital world.
The last two tracks are from the American vinyl pressing "Live Dance" (which strangely enough omits the track TVC15... it's on my tape so you have it anyway)

RE-UP: David Bowie live in Brussels 1983 - 2CD - May19

David Bowie - 830519 - Brussels


JTB Artwork added

Vorst Nationaal
Brussels, Belgium
May 19, 1983

Description: In conjunction with Isolar 2's release of the May 18, 1983 show, here is the 19th in similar quality.  This was sent to me in low gen form, I believe three times off the master.  These shows are historic considering the original Serious Moonlight setlist is featured, which was drastically shortened as the official tour kicked off in Frankfurt 2 days later.  The Frankfurt show dropped great songs like 'Joe The Lion', 'Soul Love' which would not stay in the setlist.  Others like Look Back In Anger would not re-appear for a couple of months.  These shows are a must if you are a Bowie collector of any kind....There are 34 songs but no song 18, making for a 33 song setlist.  Apologies for any technical difficulties but trust me you'll like this.

1. Intro/The Jean Genie (Intro)

RE-UP: David Bowie live in Osaka 1978 - 2CD - December 7

David Bowie - Koseinenkin Kaikan, Osaka, Japan
7 December 1978

Audio Source: Audience

Seeing Halloween Jack's upload of the 6 December 1978 show reminded me that
I had a copy of the following night's show. I looked out the cassettes, gave
them a play and thought the quality of this is pretty good. Listening to the
show I was convinced that it was worthy of a transfer. However I am in no way
as adept as Halloween Jack at tinkering with tapes to bring out the best in
them. So I contacted Jack described what I had and asked him if he wanted to
have a go at remastering them. He said yes and this is what you now have.
(jamesthecat)

Having received the discs from JTC I was pleasantly suprised what a clean and
fresh recording it was with no excessive distortion or rumbling bass.
The discs were very quiet, peaking at about -9db so a bit of volume adjustment
and balancing between channels was required. I removed a tiny bit of hiss and
patched a couple of dropouts at the beginning of Blackout. It was then just
a matter of a general tidy up and a bit of gentle EQ work on the top end
to finish off.
There are two small skips, one in Heroes and the other in Beauty and the Beast
which probably originate from the master tape. No Rebel Rebel but as we know
this was sometimes dropped so quite probably the complete show.
