Ouvrez Le Chien (Live Dallas ’95) available July 3rd
Parlophone Records is releasing a previously unreleased David Bowie live album on streaming outlets on July 3rd. Ouvrez Le Chien (Live Dallas ’95) was recorded live at the Starplex Ampitheatre in Dallas on October 13, 1995 during the US leg of The Outside Tour. “Teenage Wildlife (Live Dallas ’95)” is available to stream ahead of the album’s release.
The phrase “Ouvrez Le Chien” (“open the dog” in French) originally appeared in the song “All The Madmen” taken from The Man Who Sold The World which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. Bowie also used the phrase in his 1993 single “Buddha Of Suburbia,” once again spelling ‘ouvre’ without a ‘z.’ The ‘z’ was restored when the phrase and its English translation were prominently featured on the stage set of the 1995 Outside Tour.
Ouvrez Le Chien also features two bonus tracks: “Moonage Daydream” and “Under Pressure” recorded live at the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham on December 13, 1995. Previously available on the Hallo Spaceboy CD single, both tracks are now making their streaming debut.
Ouvrez Le Chien was produced by David Bowie and recorded by Steve Guest. “Moonage Daydrem” and “Under Pressure” were mixed by David Richards at Mountain Studios, Switzerland, assisted by Sam Curtis. The musicians are Bowie (vocals and saxophone), Carlos Alomar (rhythm guitar,) Reeves Gabrels (lead guitar and vocals), Gail Ann Dorsey (bass and vocals), Zachary Alford (drums), Peter Schwartz (keyboards and synthesisers), George Simms (vocals), and Mike Garson (piano and keyboards).
