Bowie fans will, of course, want to get this (it's hard to have too much well recorded live Bowie). The big question is whether or not the difference from David Live (July of 1974) is significant. Yes and No. The vocals on Cracked Actor are much less hoarse and stronger on every track, but the track selection is very similar. Cracked Actor doesn't have Width of a Circle, but does have It's Gonna Be Me, and John, I'm Only Dancing (Again). The Cracked Actor show is well worth picking up even if you own David Live.
