The artwork claims this is from the Trident Studio sessions in 1973.  However, reportedly recorded during the Diamond Dogs sessions at the Olympic Studios, Barnes, London in 1974.  I think this version may be the track from Ava Cherry's 'People Form Bad Homes' album.  Geoffrey MacCormack, Jason Guess and Ava Cherry (known collectively as the Astronettes) were the backing vocalists at the 1980 Floor Show on 18-20 October 1973. Bowie worked on an album for the group, but it was eventually dropped, only to resurface as an Ava Cherry album in 1995. 5
