Heh! So true! He once said in a magazine "I know I recorded it in LA because that's what the album says on it" Ha! Ha! Ha! Genius!
I love that '76-'80 period: it was his most productive and imaginative for me - more so though than the glam stuff IMHO. My girlfriend loves the Ziggy-era and hates anything from Young Americans onwards - isn't it great that one man could create such distictive phases, I can't think of a current artist doing that right now.
You're absolutely right Chris - if there's just one live show to release it's this one.
Now listening to Station to Station and then I think it's got to be Systems of Romance.
Note to self: Must move the time-machine past '76-'79 this week...
Oh I don't know though, I'm not doing any harm and I'm having so much fun!
