David Bowie ‘Brilliant Live Adventures’ – a series of six David Bowie live albums from the 1990s, available on CD and vinyl. Limited edition CD and vinyl slipcases are also available as a standalone format to house the complete sets. Previously only available via the David Bowie Official online stores.
Ouvrez Le Chien was recorded live at the Starplex Amphitheater, Dallas, 13th October, 1995 during the US leg of the Outside tour. The title Ouvrez Le Chien (“open the dog” in French) originally appeared in the song ‘All The Madmen’ taken from The Man Who Sold The World album which celebrates its 50th anniversary in November of this year. Bowie also used the phrase in the lyrics of 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 in the stage set of the 1995 Outside tour.
The album was produced by David Bowie & recorded by Steve Guest. *Mixed by David Richards at Mountain Studios, Switzerland, assisted by Sam Curtis. The musicians are David 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, Mike Garson – piano and keyboards.
