David Bowie - Live Santa Monica '72 - 1994 - Golden Years

Even by the time David Bowie played Santa Monica in 1972, the great man had released brilliant albums like "The Man Who Sold the World", "Hunky Dory", and "Ziggy Stardust". In 1973 he released his "Aladdin Sane" masterpiece. Also, during the '70's, he maintained his brilliant creative power with albums like "Station To Station", "Low", "Heroes", and "Lodger". His 1980 "Scary Monsters" album can also be added to Bowie's list of classic rock albums. During the '90's he released the underrated "Buddha of Suburbia", and in 2002, he released the wonderful "Heathen" album. "Live Santa Monica '72" was Bowie’s first live U.S. radio appearance, recorded at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on 20 October 1972 during the Ziggy Stardust tour. Taken from an FM radio broadcast, by the now-defunct Los Angeles station KMET (“The Mighty Met,” 94.7 FM ). There are dozens of issues of this album on vinyl and CD. Many of the releases are unofficial, with poor sound quality. The release here is an official release and sound quality is above average. A superb live concert from Bowie and his band, including the late Mick Ronson
