"I'm just the space cadet - He's the commander."
14 February 2006 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This excellent documentary - originally broadcast by the BBC in 1975 - may seem slow moving and "arty" to those weened on Biography's breezy chrono-bio clip-show style, but it's as honest a portrait as you'll ever find on the enigmatic singer, captured in the midst of an intensely creative period, but fueled and debilitated by massive cocaine use. It contains some unusually candid behind-the-scenes footage as well as providing fascinating glimpses of the fabled 1974 "Diamond Dogs" tour, unavailable elsewhere. If you can find a good gray market copy, snap it up. Otherwise, pester the BBC to give this a proper release.
