Filled with classics such as 'Ziggy Stardust', Changes, Space Oddity (Major Tom) and Suffragette City, this DVD is a must-have part of any good music collection.

As a Bowie fan from way back, this way a real treat to find. The 30th Anniversary edition of the original stage performance. I was less than a year old when it occured.
The sound quality was excellent, considering the original technology used to record it. The picture was as good as could be expected, but nothing spectacular.
Overall though, I have to say it was a thrill to watch, and see the real music in it's own era. Well worth the price, even to the most jaded 70's fan.
Random listing from 'Music'...
The Japanese composer Toshiro Mayuzumi enjoyed a distinguished international reputation on a par with that of Toru Takemitsu. Versatile and prolific, he contributed music for films, the theatre and broadcasts. This recording features two of his most rythmically exciting and exotically scored works from the 1960s, the ballad Bugaku, based on ancient Japanese imperial dance, and the Mandala Symphony, inspired by Buddhist teaching. Symphonic mood was Mayuzumi's first orchestral composition, while the colourful Rumba Rhapsody here recieves what is probably its first ever performance.
