Q (UK) - - 50 Albums Of The Year -

THE LAST “HE­ROES”

A rare clip of Bowie at 2004’ s Hur­ri­cane Fes­ti­val in Ger­many in a no­tice­ably frag­ile vo­cal per­for­mance of “He­roes” from what un­in­ten­tion­ally be­came his last ever full con­cert.

BAR­GAIN BIN BLUES

Dur­ing the Re­al­ity tour, Bowie and his band visit a truck­stop in Mon­tana where the singer no­tices his own Tin Ma­chine de­but in the cas­sette bar­gain bin. “That fig­ures,” laughs Bowie.

ZIGGY AT THE RAIN­BOW

Pre­vi­ously un­seen footage of Bowie per­form­ing Lady Star­dust from his highly stylised Lon­don Rain­bow shows of Au­gust 1972 with Lind­say Kemp’s danc­ing Astronettes.

THE SPACE OD­DITY OD­DITY

Q won’t spoil the sur­prise but while mak­ing The Last Five Years, Bowie pro­ducer Tony Vis­conti makes a star­tling sonic dis­cov­ery on the stu­dio mas­ter tape of 1969’ s Space Od­dity.

THE GOOD­BYE SUP­PER

Fol­low­ing Bowie’s death, his The Next Day band, in­clud­ing Earl Slick and Mike Gar­son, gather for a din­ner to dis­cuss the David they knew and lost, the cam­eras cap­tur­ing their raw emo­tions.
