And the stars look very different today...
It seems the first of the subscription DVDs of Burt Sugarman's The Midnight Special that we told you about back in April have begun to surface. (04.29.2006 NEWS: 1980 FLOOR SHOW TO GET OFFICIAL DVD RELEASE?)
Here's the tracklisting for the Million Sellers DVD which includes David Bowie's wonderful rendition of Space Oddity from the 1980 Floor Show recorded at The Marquee in London in 1973 especially for The Midnight Special.
Roy Orbison - Oh, Pretty Woman
Fleetwood Mac - Rhiannon
Peter Frampton - Baby I Love Your Way
John Denver & Cass Elliot - Leaving On A Jet Plane
The Bee Gees - Jive Talkin'
Linda Ronstadt - You're No Good
The Guess Who - American Woman
Al Green - Let's Stay Together
Aretha Franklin - Respect
David Bowie - Space Oddity
Blondie - Heart Of Glass
Labelle - Lady Marmalade
The Steve Miller Band - The Joker
Billy Joel - Travelin' Prayer
Donna Summer - Last Dance
As we told you back in April, you can't buy these DVDs in the shops, though they are selling on eBay for inflated prices that will no doubt start to fall once the market becomes saturated.
I still have no idea if there are plans to release the full Bowie show or not, but we'll let you know either way as soon as we find out.
