WCIBN? Album Focus: David Live - Day 2

on August 25, 2016


“Turn to the left, Turn to the right”


We continue our delve into the David Bowie - Who Can I Be Now? (1974 – 1976) box set this week with David Live.


The first official live Bowie album, David Live, is the document of The Year Of The Diamond Dogs Tour of Canada and North America in 1974.


The album was compiled from shows at the Tower Theatre, Philadelphia, in July and was released in October that year. Our montage shows the rather grainy original sleeve with a reversed image that really didn't do the Dagmar photo justice.
