David Bowie – Live Santa Monica ’72

Title : David Bowie – Live Santa Monica ’72. Format : Double Vinyl Record.  Label : Warner Brother Records. Barcode / Catalog Number : 825646113743

Santa Monica ’72 is a live vinyl record by David Bowie, recorded at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium on 20 October 1972 during the Ziggy Stardust Tour. This live album features a quite different setlist to the one found on Ziggy Stardust – The Motion Picture (1983) (namely that, with the exception of The Jean Genie, the setlist contains no songs from Aladdin Sane, which were very present by the end of the tour), which was recorded nine months afterwards and similarly bootlegged prior to its belated official release. The Santa Monica recording is generally considered a superior representation of the Ziggy Stardust concerts in terms of both sound quality and standard of playing. In 1981, NME critics Roy Carr and Charles Shaar Murray called it not simply “the performer’s best ever bootleg”, but “far superior to either of Bowie’s official location recordings” to that date, David Live (1974) and Stage (1978).  The album was officially reissued in the 5 Years boxset in 2015, and later reissued as a solo double LP in 2016.
