One of the best concert documents of Spiders era Bowie you're ever likely to hear! When the set kicks off with a fiery version of the pre-punk bit of charged glam genius "Hang On To Yourself", you know you're in for a prime experience – and it gets better from there, with all of Bowie's best songs of the early 70s and a few surprises. Live In Santa Monica is really an incredible showpiece for the Spiders From Mars, too – with Mick Ronson's blazing guitar work a massive thing to behold, while Mike Garson's piano and keys lead the more delicate moments beautifully – and Bowie provides the spark and the starman glow out front – at his all time best! 18 tracks, including the intro: "Ziggy Stardust", "Changes", "Life On Mars?", "Five Years", "Space Oddity", "Andy Warhol", "My Death", "Queen Bitch", "Moonage Daydream", "John, I'm Only Dancing", the Velvets' "I'm Waiting For My Man", "The Jean Genie", "Rock N Roll Suicide" and more.

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.
With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
