Highly influential and visionary artist David Bowie has a back catalogue that spans four decades and a lifetime's selection of musical styles. His ability to adapt to different sounds so seamlessly is expressed brilliantly in this live collection, captured at The Manhattan Center, New York for VH1.Including hits such as 'Rebel Rebel' and 'Chine Girl', thismesmerising performance from The Thin White Duke is a must for fans and newcomers alike and comes complete with both CDand DVD versions.
5* Uncut Review, August '09
1999 TV Show offers priceless insights and powerful renditions. One can't imagine many stars of his stature spinning self deprecating anecdotes, but the storytellers song-and-chat format was made for Bowie's uniquely thespian charm. Here he recalls seeking a toilet, dressed in full Ziggy regalia, and protesting to the promoter. "My dear man, I can't piss in the sink." The promoter grumbled, "Son, if it's good enough for Shirley Bassey, it's good enough for you." He also mentions drunkenly shaving his eyebrows off when Mott The Hoople rejected "Drive In Saturday" ("that taught them a lesson"). He also reveals his vote for "the worst two lines I've ever written." Yet when the music kicks in he's suddenly the airborne trouper again, offering brilliant versions of "Life On Mars?", "China Girl" and "My Cry for Help", "Word On A Wing". The accompanying DVD adds a teased-out "Always Crashing in the Same Car"--Chris Roberts

The CD almost feels superfluous as it is just a measly 45 minuets of audio taken directly from the footage. If you want the extra 4 (audio) bonus tracks, you'll have to download them from iTunes. It would have been far more interesting if they had used the hour long radio broadcast, from the same tour, recorded at the Kit Kat Klub, also in New York, as a bonus CD, along side the DVD instead, making a nice alternative show, in this double disc set. Of which, 3 songs were officially release as part of the CD single package for the song 'Seven' in 1999.
As for the DVD its self, it has great picture and audio quality and Bowie delivers, but why not the whole show rather than just the 45 minuets as broadcast? There was a full un-cut, professionally shot, version of this Storytellers gig, knocking around on bootleg DVD, in very good quality for many years. So I was a bit disappointed to see just 4 extra songs tagged on the DVD when they could have easily been edited into the main feature, along with the other missing songs. Saying that, surely the whole unedited master tape still exists in the MTV/VH1 archives, so no, not even editing songs back in. On top of that, all 4 bonus clips have different audio levels, especially 'If I'm Dreaming My Life' which has the volume level very low! What's up with that?
Furthermore, a whole performance was filmed at the Elysee Montmartre, Paris, that remains shelved, running a full 75 minuets. Again, a 'leaked' bootleg DVD exists. The live video cut of the track 'Survive' was officially used, from this Paris show, available, back-in-the-day, on enhanced CD single, which I think can be found as an 'Easter egg' on Best of Bowie DVD also. This concert, getting an official release, may well have been a better choice.
The artwork is good but, the packaging is scant, thrown together with typo's in the booklet. This whole thing should have been much, much better.
The SOUND is very good (the DVD has also 5.1 Sound DOLBY or DTS as well as Stereo).
The quality of the sound is pretty good and definitely not comparible to MP3 quality (as sugested by an other reviewer).
Some of the stories are funny, others just interesting.
The songs are very nice and well preformed.
Especialy the preformance of "China Girl" is very nice and an welcome variation of the original.
I have the CD in the car-stereo for some time now, and it is a joy to listion to the show over and over again.
Recomended to fans of David Bowie.
