Classic Bowie Bootleg Records Landing of Ziggy Stardust

Any classic rocker worth his salt has at least one “lost” recording circulating among his die-hard fans. For David Bowie, it’s a stunning Santa Monica performance from 36 years ago that documented his first U.S. tour — a heady time when his glitter-powered Ziggy Stardust persona was about to make Bowie’s name in the States. Widely bootlegged but only now officially available, Live is that rare “lost” album that deserves being sought out.
