A nice attempt at the artwork, trying to use themes from Pinups but the quality of the original pictures used is far from ideal.  Furthermore, there are mistakes in the liner notes and on the tray.  The subtitle is 'Heads Down'.  As the tracks are from different live sources there are gaps between the tracks which could have been managed better and the sound volume varies considerably.   All in all a forgettable recording - for the completists among us!

I am over-critical because it is a pirate recording as well as a bootleg.  To add further insult to injury, it is a cheap CDR designed to dupe the unsuspecting Bowie collector into thinking they have a silver CD.  This practise is particularly distasteful.
