Album of the Day
No Trendy Rechauffe (Live Birmingham 95)
The second of six strictly limited-edition albums in David Bowie's Brilliant Live Adventures series, NO TRENDY RÉCHAUFFÉ (LIVE BIRMINGHAM 95) was recorded live at the Birmingham NEC on December 13, 1995. The collection captures the final show of the Outside tour and was the first night of a five-night festival promoted as “The Big Twix Mix Show.” Such stalwarts as guitarists Carlos Alomar and Reeves Gabrels accompany David on these 15 tracks, which include rare performances of “Jump They Say” and “Strangers When We Meet,” as well as two versions of “Hallo Spaceboy,” a song intended as the singer-songwriter's next single. Now in stores, NO TRENDY RÉCHAUFFÉ (LIVE BIRMINGHAM 95) shows the incredible stage presence Bowie still had 30 years into his career.
