"Diamond Dogs" has long been my favourite Bowie album, and I remember getting this way back in '74 when it was first released.
Even back then it was a real departure for a live album to be actually live, with minimal overdubs, and it sounded great.
Enter the new Surround reissue - and also enter Tony Visconti back to the mixing duties.
I was a little worried about this one as the suurround mix for the "Reality" DVD-V live album was poor. However, I was very pleasantly surprised as the surround placement gives the impression of really being there - the rear channels are used discretely and not just for ambience.
Bowie's vocal performance on this album is top notch - check out the expressiveness of "All The Young Dudes" here - and the band is as good as it got up until now, with a much younger Earl Slick taking the lead guitar on for the first time - and doing a very fine job too. "Moonage Daydream", "Cracked Actor" and "Width of a Circle" being amongst the best live guitar sounds I have ever heard. Piano duties are mainly from Mike Garson (another player who is also back in Bowie's band 31 years later too!) who even then was displaying the delicate touch that makes him amongst the best in the field - check out the playing particularly on "Aladdin Sane" for a ggod example of what I mean
The album is from the first half of the "Dogs" tour, before the "Young Americans" sessions invoked Bowie's Soul phase and turned the second half of the tour into what came to be called the "Philly Dogs" tour.
Criticisms?
Same as for "Stage" really.
1 - 21 tracks, yet only 7 stills.

This was the period when all of Bowies fears came true, The madnesss that he always thought was somewhere within him came raging to the surface and is reflected in what are probably amongst his strongest performances on the live stage. Drug fuelled and paranoid, David covered his own music in a complete new style, whereas in the previous year it had been the power chords and gusto of Mick Ronson and the spiders from mars, this tour was a futurisitc cabaret bringing in all of bowies abilities to confound his audience not only with sound but light and movement as well. This 5.1 version of those shows has to be the best live David Bowie album available. Put plain and simple, it is astounding! The work that has gone into making it as near the actual experience of being there is the best i have ever heard on this format and far exceeds Stage, the other live Bowie album available in 5.1. Buy this and sit back and listen to a man at the top of his game while at the same time on the edge of a ravine that at any time he was about to crash down into. The tension is at times unbelievable and for those lucky enough to have been there must have been the experience of a lifetime. This then is a snapshot of a very interesting period in David Bowies long and varied history and listening to it, its so easy to understand why he is now a legend in his own lifetime

I want to correct what the comment above states. There is a stereo track in the VIDEO_ST part of the disc and it's a superb 24 bit/48kHz LPCM! So everyone can enjoy at least a high resolution stereo track.
Disc structure is the following
DVD-A part:
5.1 24bit/48kHz PCM
DVD-V part:
5.1 24bit/48kHz DTS
2.0 24bit/48kHz LPCM

This is a great album on which Bowies singing shines. The DVD A 5.1 sound quality is OK - but given the recording situation (of which you'll learn if you read Tony Visconti's linear notes)then you ain't gonna expect audiophile sound. Having said that it is definitely the best version available of this album.
I have to correct the previous reviewer though - the stereo mix on the DVD Vid layer is merely a downmix of the 5.1 version (again it's in the linear notes).
