Wanna hear what it would have been like to see David Bowie play on his 1978 world tour? Stage was released that same year (although later reissues like this one include a full and proper set-list rather than edited highlights), and it features a great band (Adrian Belew, Carlos Alomar, George Murray) and great Berlin-era Bowie songs. 2CD and 3LP reissue editions from Parlophone.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 31st January 2018
This is one of Bowie's most criticised albums. I never understood why, considering the quality of the recording and the talent of the band, which included Carlos Alomar, one of the most important figures in Bowie's work, along with King Crimson member Adrian Belew, and an incredible rhythm section, which included George Murray hammering the bass. Bowie's vocals are quite good, almost perfect, but that's Bowie. Bowie's vocal on "Heroes" is stunning, arguably better than the original, and the ending of "Ziggy Stardust", where he holds the note, is amazing.
