youTube

David Bowie 1973 ‘Top Of The Pops’ anyone?  So ~ like you, we kept hearing about the possible T.O.T. P. ‘Jean Genie broadcast on Dec. 21, 2011 but just about the time we settled with the notion of having to wait,  BBC2 aired it as part of their Christmas special. Almost immediately, posting after posting started to appear on youTube and it felt like the entire planet was tuning in.

Bowie and The Spiders From Mars are caught here, in their absolute prime and the delivery of this video, 38 years later and the week of Christmas ~ kicked our spirits into overdrive.  Read part 1 of the story here and the follow up here for the complete story  but the video you’ll find posted below. Lean back and get ready to time-travel: UK 1973. “Let Yourself Go!!”
