MP3: Download Unreleased Live David Bowie Album from 1990


Palais Omnisports, Paris, France; April 3, 1990 – a so-so tour, but a great performance this night.

This one probably needs no introduction: it’s an oft-bootlegged Paris show from 1990 that apparently had been originally recorded for a proposed official live album, but was ultimately shelved by Bowie and/or his record label. The good archivists over at Big O zine had resurrected it, Lazarus-like, as a tribute to Bowie in the wake of his death this past weekend.

MP3: Palais Omnisports, Paris, France; April 3, 1990.

According to Big O: “The Paris show was recorded by Bowie for an official live album/live video; which remains unseen even in leaked form…Bowie was at his worst point of his career vocally during this tour, the previous year’s Tin Machine tour, then vitually once a night shows from this tour reduced his baritone to a dry rasp that on many occasions just packed up (there’s a great shot on youtube of him throwing his guitar away in frustration during the opening verse of Station To Station when his voice cracks). Add to that the worst band he had toured with, and I think, overall the quality of a live album was just not going to look good on his CV. Which is ironic, considering that it is surely his most documented stadium tour; there exists more “official” television and radio shows from this tour than any other.”

Big O has provided downloadable artwork along with the track MP3s.
