The Thin White Duke's Return

On the eve a a long awaited new Bowie album, I uncovered this long lost gem. Billed as "David Bowie's Secret Greatest Live Album", this concert is from the Station To Station Tour in 1976. Recorded at Nassau Coliseum in Long Island, the sound quality is excellent- Bowie and band are in fine form. And guitarist Carlos Alomar has never sounded better!

There is little in the way of video from that tour and this audio recording is one of the only surviving documents of it. Here is the track listing:

Station to Station
Suffragette City
Word On A Wing
Waiting For The Man
Queen Bitch
Life On Mars?
Five Years
Panic In Detroit
Diamond Dogs
Rebel Rebel
The Jean Genie

Los Angeles DJ
Orange County DJ
