Honestly I would like to be “sound without” seems also to fairly For advanced users, astounding the visual beauty is more than that. What I do not know what has been saved, Ziggy is fiercely beautiful. Of course, one is also a professional photography to, it what I have met a shining figure of “Ziggy” in the quality of enough as it is recorded on the official DVD.
It is also recorded saying the 30 cut in three, is a concert in the “Life On Mars?” And “John I’m Only Dancing” promo shooting of outtakes, it “May 23, 1973 Bournemouth”. Promo shooting seems also to the familiar sight, but clapperboard also or appeared, and or to verify the position and action of Bowie camera, sheer is behind the scenes.

The Silent Masters: Original 16mm Film Reels (40 minutes)

まず登場するのがメインの「The Silent Masters: Original 16mm Film Reels」。海外マニアが“ジギー時代”の16ミリフィルムをに編纂・監修したものですが、そのタイトル通りの無音。16ミリの宿命でもある細切れ映像が約30カット連なっているのです。正直に申し上げて“音ナシ”はかなり上級者向けにも思えますが、それ以上に驚異的なのが映像美。どう保存していたのか分かりませんが、ジギーが猛烈に美しい。もちろん、いずれもプロ撮影ですし、それこそ公式DVDにそのまま収録できるほどのクオリティで“ジギー”の輝く姿を収めているのです。
30カットとは言っても収録は3種で、「Life On Mars?」と「John I’m Only Dancing」プロモ撮影時のアウトテイク、それに「1973年5月23日ボーンマス」でのコンサートです。プロモ撮影はお馴染みの光景にも思えますが、カチンコも登場したり、ボウイがカメラの位置やアクションを確認したりと、舞台裏が透ける。さらに強力なのがボーンマスのコンサートシーン。この日をテーマにしたドキュメンタリー番組もあり、そのアウトテイクと思われますが、千変万化な衣装で観客を沸かせるジギーの姿が鮮烈。露わになった素足に浮き立つ血管までもが鮮明で、山本寛斎デザインの「出火吐暴威」衣装も登場。ミック・ロンソンのギターソロも手元バッチリで描き出されるのです。

もう1つは、ミック・ロンソンのドキュメント番組「Mick Ronson Artist Profile」。フレディ・マーキュリー追悼コンサートをフィーチュアしたもので、久しぶりに共演したボウイや当時のミック、ジョー・エリオットのインタビューも登場します。

最後は、再びサイレント・フィルム。こちらはモノクロで「Life On Mars?」撮影の模様が約10分、1972年8月のレインボーシアター公演に際したファンの街頭インタビューシーンが約3分収録されています。
