DAVID BOWIE – ” Tokyo 78 “

Posted: September 12, 2022 in MUSIC

Protus proudly presents the entire NHK broadcast of David Bowie, “Live from Tokyo”, Japan on 12th December 1978. Professionally re-mastered original broadcast with background liners and rare archival photos.

Bowie’s farewell performance in Japan in December 1978 for the ‘Low/Heroes World Tour’ offers a prized snapshot of the artist’s  work over the preceding 3 years with “Young Americans” and “Station To Station” featuring prominently alongside his two then new  albums. Having left LA and a cocaine habit behind, Bowie was energized and on the verge of something ultimately and creatively  new. Inspiring is an understatement. 

Pressed on 180g White Vinyl and presented in a hand-numbered sleeve with insert. 

Featuring Adrian Belew and Carlos Alomar – guitar; Simon House – electric violin; George Murray – bass; Dennis Davis – drums; Sean  Mayes and Roger Powell – keyboards.
