However, Tony Visconti has taken the master tapes and produced a far more enjoyable and listenable version of the same show. It now makes for a great audible experience and includes a host of banter and material that had originally been culled.
The show itself is legendary and extremely important to Bowie fans. The interplay between Bowie and Mick Ronson is fabulous.
With regard to the packaging, the anniversary edition comes in a perspex slip case (mine has now discoloured over time) in which is house a box containing sleeve notes, a replica ticket and of course the two discs.
First impressions hark back to the days of opening that treasured new gatefold and finding goodies spilling out with the LP sleeve: within the evocative box are a poster containing press clippings, a reproduction ticket stub (how many people will sit at B17 I wonder?), a booklet and the two CDs - themselves in neon red to match the overriding chroma of the movie footage.
But enough of the ephemera. The remix has brought the concert back to life in dramatic style: the drums are loud, the guitars sqeal, Bowie and the crowd are in fine voice. Regardless of the status of this gig as the famous 'Last One', as presented here this concert stands out as one of the all-time great recorded events.
If you like Bowie, if you want a slice of the 1970s at the Hammersmith Odeon, if you want to avoid searching online auctions for this gem in future years, get it.
If you are looking for the real early 70'ties sound, skip this 30th anniversary version..
I like both, if you just want a better quality sound, take this one.
