The Midnight SpecialTotal Rock Review Burt Sugarman's The Midnight Special - Million Sellers
(Guthy Renker Entertainment MU0001), 2006

Space Oddity.

This DVD was a pilot to an 8-DVD set spanning the years 1973-1980. Bowie appears only on this title with a performance of 'Space Oddity' on the 1980 Floor Show.

Normally, I would advise to steer clear from any 'in depth review' DVDs, but an exception has been made for Total Rock Review (bottom). This title presents a far more complete overview of the 1980 Floor Show, covering Sorrow/Everything's Alright/Space Oddity/I Can't Explain/Time/The Jean Genie/I Got You Babe, albeit in rather shabby quality.
