What can I say about this disc other than if you are a Bowie fan then this is a really nice release indeed.

It is a direct copy of a double silver disc set I have entitled "Sound And Vision", which was recorded live at Rotterdam, Sport Paleis Ahoy 30.03.90.

It is on the POP TUNES Record label Cat No PT 316, and I bought it many moons ago at a UK record Fair and it cost me £25
(the price tag is still on the cd case).

This is what Bassman has to say about this recording:

"COMMENTS: This is the CD issue of the LP SOUND + VISION (1991).
The sound quality is excellent, just like the show itself!
This CD is said to be rather limited, but I have no idea of how many copies that were released?
The flyer has the same pictures as on the cover. A very nice CD!"

The address on the above mentioned flyer of "Pop tunes" is Rue De Cap, D'Antibes23 - 75019 Paris France.  Furthermore it says the
cd was/is "Made In France"

The sound as Bassman says is excellent and to be honest it is really good.
I'm not sure if it's a radio broadcast, a soundboard recording or just an exceptionally good audience recording
it is so very hard to tell. But I would rate the sound at a very solid 8/10.

Furthermore it catches Bowie on his "farewell tour" in 1990, before forming "Tin machine".

The setlist is basically a greatest hits setlist, and I can never understand to this day, why an official release from this tour has never been released, as some of the shows were recorded.
