Official Release

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 theStax nugget "Knock On Wood", pointed at Bowie's immersion in a Philly soul direction that emerged full-fledged on YOUNG AMERICANS.

David Bowie on David Live:

"David Live was the final death of Ziggy. God, that album. I've never played it. The tension it must contain must be like vampire's teeth coming down on you. And that photo on the cover. My God, it looks as if I've just stepped out of that grave.

"That's actually how I felt. That record should have been called 'David Bowie Is Alive And Well And Living Only In Theory." (October 1977)

Quotes from Bowie in His Own Words Book.
