David Bowie Releases Live 1972 Recording

Grab the tightest pants from the back of your closet and throw on some glitter boots, David Bowie is planning to release a live album that dates back to 1972. The release will consist of eighteen songs that he played during the Ziggy Stardust US tour at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on October 20, 1972. The recording is set to come out June 30 as a CD and double 12" vinyl in the UK.

Speaking with NME, Bowie commented, "This would be around the tenth American show for us and you can hear that we are all pretty high on ourselves. We train wreck a couple of things, I miss some words and sometimes you wouldn't know that pianist Mike Garson was onstage with us but overall I really treasure this bootleg. Mick Ronson is at his blistering best."
