Re: Official Bowie Live Footage 1976 [re: bowiefanpeter]  

I can't stand it how some ppl get hold of these videos and tapes and take them to their grave. What's the point in owning them if you won't at some point share them? This i fail to understand?

I'd lay odds there are copies of almost every Bowie concert from '73 onwards out there, though they just are not being shared. I bet there are even studio out-takes Bowie himself does not own anymore. Or even just jamming or studio banter captured on reals that was thrown away or lost or worse yet, stolen :( I almost wanna cry when I think of this.

Maybe we should start a consortium and head off to all the auctions and buy up the rare stuff to avoid it slipping away forever? Isn't it sad to think that some collectors will kick the bucket and these tapes and rare stuff could be lost forever!

As for Bowie's sound men? He has differant sound guys for every tour. Imagine how many tapes the sound guy could rip from a tour. Even with Bowie making them sign contracts that they won't take copies i'm sure they have some idea on how to score a tape.

Let's look at the Earthling tour. Perhaps one of Bowie's most diverse for song selection and so on. Now if one or two sound guys do the tour and record every show can you begin to think of how much material they would have?

A good research tool is Pim's concert tape book. A very extensive detailed book on almost every know recorded Bowie show up untill the mid 80's. And seeing how Aylesbury only recently turned up we have hope yet that more goodies will show up.

Don't take life too seriously, except when the Ashes series begins in November ;p
