Just curious - is there an accepted consensus re which was the first ever Bowie bootleg issued on vinyl / CD (and when they were issued) ?

According Bassman "Ziggy In Concert" (Santa Monica 1972) in 1973 for LP and perhaps "Resurrection On 84th Street" (Nassau 1976) for CD in 1989...

Santa Monica '72 ('In Person') and Long Beach Arena '73 ('All American Bowie') were out first on TMQ, followed by 'Dollars In Drag' (1980 Floor Show) and 'His Masters Voice' (Hammersmith '73) on Kornyphone.

On CD, 'The Beckenham Oddity' (Clairville Grove '69) and 'The Chameleon Chronicles' compilations are generally accepted to be the first.

I replied to an ad in the NME someone selling 'Slaughter in the Air' for £20 I think [paid in postal orders remember them], I am still friends with this guy and met on numerous occasions at Bowie gigs the last being Shepperd's Bush empire in 97.

Bassman is usually good, but here he's not: Resurrection on 84th Street was certainly not one of the first Bowie boots; as far as I recall, it was issued in late 1976 (or maybe it was during the Spring of 1977), by this time The 1980 Floor Show was available in at least two versions (Dollars in Drag and Soft in the Middle, possibly also Bump 'n' Grind), and His Master's Voice was also available, as was All American Bowie (Live at Long Beach), which was a single album and not as good in quality as Santa Monica, which was, and still is, a cracker.

There may well have been a couple of other vinyl boots available before Ressurection on 84th Street, but there were also cassettes circulating as well.

I recall one early boot of a pre-ziggy performance which included a cover of Cream's "I Feel Free", and also "Gotta Get A Job", but I can't remember anything else about it now, other than the quality wasn't particularly good.

The performance you remember may be kingston polytech 72 which is my absolute favorite. i believe there may have been a 75 show perhaps boston that was issued in 75/76 called "subway" i may be misremembering

I think you're right -- I think it was Kingston Poly -- but surely earlier than 1972? (1970 or 71?)

There was also a bootleg 7" single -- which I still have -- three tracks from the Diamond Dogs tour: "Come Back My Baby" [actually "It's Gonna Be Me", but nobody knew what it was called!] c/w "Cracked Actor"/"All the Young Dudes" which, as I recall, appeared sometime in 1976.

To quote a note from Christian Frifelts 1st version of the Illustrated Bowie Bootleg file, the first ever Bowie Bootleg was

Ziggy In Concert -Berkley 1806/1807 - Santa Monica obviously
"Co: This is the first bootleg ever with Bowie !!
This is the only lp that contains the complete broadcast
including ODE TO JOY and the DJ's comments. The insert at
the front is in red and the one on the back side is in
blue. Three songs have been misnamed, MY DEATH is called
QIUCKSAND, JOHN, I'M ONLY DANCING is listed as OH LODI
and SUFFRAGETTE CITY is misnamed LUFFRAGETTE CITY!
Some of the albums were split and sold as two single
lp's, but still with the original inserts. These two
single albums are often called SPACE ODDITY and WIDTH
OF A CIRCLE ! Anyway, this album is worth its weight
in gold!"


Christian is a bible on bootlegs and now on his 4th version I think with updates upto 2023
