First off I must acknowledge the source. Kenny (olddirtroad) posted only a few days ago a compilation of 70's performances from England's Old Grey Whistle Test. It's 1-1/2 hours long so I thought I'd post this gem from Bowie's sterling Hunky Dory record. It's The Spiders From Mars just before Bowie morphed into Ziggy. I've read that Queen Bitch was Bowie's tribute to Lou Reed. Not hard to believe because this sure sounds a lot like Velvet Underground to me. Always dug this tune.
