  • When David Bowie recorded what became DAVID LIVE at Philadelphia's Tower Theatre in July 1974, he had fully made the leap from Ziggy Stardust and landed feet-first into the shoes of the Thin White Duke. Despite announcing his retirement from live performance the year before, Bowie seemed no worse for wear fronting a ten-piece directed by future LETHAL WEAPON composer Michael Kamen and featuring new guitarist Earl Slick and horn player David Sanborn. This 2-CD set finds the chameleonic performer mixing in Ziggy-era classics such as "Rock 'N' Roll Suicide" with material from DIAMOND DOGS ("Rebel Rebel," "1984"), ALADDIN SANE ("Cracked Actor") and HUNKY DORY ("Changes"). The fullness of the horn section and the style of his back-up band give this set a soulful tilt powered by Slick's ballsy playing. This, along with a cover of the Stax nugget "Knock On Wood," pointed at Bowie's immersion in a Philly soul direction that emerged full-fledged on YOUNG AMERICANS.
Professional Reviews
Q (8/95, pp.136-138) - 3 Stars - Good - "...encapsulates Bowie at the onset of his separation from reality..."

Uncut (p.120) - 3 stars out of 5 - "The album now carries extra punch, toughening the detail of every sex squawk, guitar trick and piano tumble."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.112) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[A]lways far spookier and grandiose than most allowed at the time."
