Album of the Day
Something In The Air (Live Paris 99)
Recorded live at the Elysée Montmarte on October 14, 1999, David Bowie's SOMETHING IN THE AIR (LIVE PARIS 99) documents one of only seven full performances during the promotion of his HOURS… album. The day of the show was a momentous one for Bowie, as that afternoon he was awarded the Commandeurs of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, the highest artistic honour that France can bestow. The 15-track concert collection features 12 previously unreleased recordings and three tracks used as B-sides; digging deep into the singer-songwriter's back catalog, standout tracks include 1966 single “Can’t Help Thinking About Me,” “Word On A Wing” (from STATION TO STATION) and “Drive-In Saturday” - none of which had been performed for decades. Now available, SOMETHING IN THE AIR (LIVE PARIS 99) captures the full scope of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer's career.
