Critical reception[edit]

Writer Nicholas Pegg described the album as “an excellent memento of one of Bowie’s greatest tours, with highlights including a majestic ‘Word On A Wing’, an über-cool ‘Waiting For The Man’, and riotous, thrilling renditions of ‘Stay’ and ‘The Jean Genie’ ” with “Bowie and his terrific 1976 band on blistering form.”[7]
