We hear David Bowie's playful side on this recently discovered tape, where he vocally emulates the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Tom Waits, Neil Young and others. Session engineer Mark Saunders recalls the recording:
'The impersonations on this YouTube posting were recorded in August '85, when Bowie came in to do the lead vocal. At the end of the session, he broke into the impersonations and I realized that these might get erased at some point, so I quickly put a cassette in and hit “record.” I wish we could hear the other side of the dialogue between Bowie and Clive (Langer, producer) and Alan (Winstanley, producer), but unfortunately that wasn’t being recorded.'
