The Supermen.

Bowie was one of the acts playing the Glastonbury Fayre Festival in 1971, performing the following set on 23-06-71: Oh! You Pretty Things/Kooks/Changes/Amsterdam/The Supermen/Memory Of A Free Festival/Song For Bob Dylan; judging from a recording at the Radio Geronimo website, also 'Bombers' was performed. To this 3LP he contributed a live-in-the-studio version of 'The Supermen', recorded during a break in the Ziggy Stardust sessions. This version later appeared as a bonus track on the Rykodisc re-release of Hunky Dory. Other artists on the album include hippie favourites such as The Grateful Dead and Hawkwind. The complete artwork included a silver & black cardboard piece which could be assembled into a pyramid, a booklet explaining artist contributions to the album and a 30 page concert booklet.

In the 1990s, this album has three times unofficially been reissued on CD: on Buccaneer BUC 029/2 (second), on a CD without record label or catalogue number (often referred to as The Electric Score, which is printed on the back; third) and as Glastonbury Fayre (FEST 1/2; bottom). All three were taken from the LP (rather than the master tapes) and include 'The Supermen'.
