Scott T Mc Nally | ORLANDO, Fl USA | 08/16/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Bowie was in the prime of his art rock phase at the time of this recording, co-writing with Eno and King Crimson's Robert Fripp. Stage captures 3 different phases of his career in one recording. The reworkings of the "Ziggy Stardust" material as well as the Station To Station" period are just plain brilliant. "Heroes" is sung much more passionately here than on the original studio recording. David's voice was at it's prime here. It had deepend just a bit, but his falsetto was very much intact.The only guitar player capable of doing Fripp's parts any justice is Adian Belew. This is actually when I first heard of him. He's an incredible guitarist who can coax sounds out of a guitar like nobody on Earth. It's no wonder that Fripp would later seek him out to reform King Crimson with two guitarists.Now on to my complaint. Why on Earth would Ryko drop this from their catalog? In my book, this is essential Bowie. It deserves to be available. If anyone out there who has not heard this disc has an opportunity to purchase it used, don't blow it!"
An Unappreciated Album!

"This CD was unavailable for many years. It is superbly recorded with fantastic classics, the best being "Station To Station", "Heroes" (a rousing guitar piece) and all the "Ziggy Stardust" classics. If you've ever wondered how a slow song like "Warsawza" could have ever been good in concert - just take a listen. It's hypnotizing! This double CD is tough to find and will not last long here at Amazon, so I recommend getting it while you can."
Behind the mask you finally find the true face of Bowie

"Stage is by far the best live performance /album by David Bowie. At a new artistic peak in his career he toured the world with an impressive voice and supporting band. You'll never forget the 10 minutes of Station to Station with the superb guitar imitation of a train by Adrian Belew and the undercooled voice of Bowie, distancing himself from his turbulent American years. And the Bowie performs Heroes really gets to you. Unfortunately the CD is hard to get, I've been looking for it for years."
