• '74 Cracked Actor Live Los Angeles [3LP : David Bowie (Vinyl LP)
A previously unreleased live recording from Los Angeles on 5th September, 1974, this was a pivotal gig in the transition between the Diamond Dogs tour and the Philly Dogs tour. Produced by David Bowie and mixed by Tony Visconti at Human Studios, NYC in October/November 2016, 3LP with 6th etching on the 6th side. ARTIST and INFO Hometown: Brixton, London, England Driven by an entirely deeper dynamic than most pop artists, David Bowie inhabited a very special world of extraordinary sounds and endless vision. Unwilling to stay on the treadmill of rock legend and avoiding the descent into ever demeaning and decreasing circles of clichÚ, Bowie wrote and performed what he wanted, when he wanted. His absence from the endless list of ''important events'' has just fuelled interest. Constant speculation about what the guy was up to has even led some to wonder if this is his greatest reinvention ever. David Jones! David Robert Jones was born in Brixton on January 8, 1947. At age thirteen, inspired by the jazz of the London West End, he picked up the saxophone and called up Ronnie Ross for lessons. Early bands he played with û The Kon-Rads, The King Bees, the Mannish Boys and the Lower Third ûprovided him with an introduction into the showy world of pop and mod, and by 1966 he was David Bowie, with long hair and aspirations of stardom rustling about his head. Kenneth Pitt signed on as his manager, and his career began with a handful of mostly forgotten singles but a head full of ideas. It was not until 1969 that the splash onto the charts would begin, with the legendary Space Oddity (which peaked at No. 5 in the UK). Amidst his musical wanderings in the late 60s, he experimented with mixed media, cinema, mime, Tibetan Buddhism, acting and love. The album, originally titled David Bowie then subsequently Man of Words, Man of Music, pays homage to all the influences of the London artistic scene. It shows the early song-writing talent that was yet to yield some of rock-n-roll's finest work, even if it would take the rest of the world a few years to catch up with him. www.davidbowie.com TRACKS Side A 01 Introduction (Live) 02 1984 (Live) 03 Rebel Rebel (Live) 04 Moonage Daydream (Live) 05 Sweet Thing/Candidate/Sweet Thing (Reprise) [Live] Side B 01 Changes (Live) 02 Suffragette City (Live) 03 Aladdin Sane (Live) 04 All The Young Dudes (Live) 05 Cracked Actor (Live) Side C 01 Rock 'N' Roll With Me (Live) 02 Knock On Wood (Live) 03 It's Gonna Be Me (Live) 04 Space Oddity (Live) Side D 01 Diamond Dogs (Live) 02 Big Brother (Live) 03 Time (Live) Side E 01 The Jean Genie (Live) 02 Rock 'N' Roll Suicide (Live) 03 John, I'm Only Dancing (Again) [Live] Side F (etched side)
