Queen Bitch Years, Please.

David Bowie – Oh, You Pretty Things, Queen Bitch & Five Years LIVE (1972)

The transitional Old Grey Whistle Test television appearance between Hunky Dory and the emergence of Ziggy Stardust on Top of the Pops later in 1972 (included at the end of the video). Bowie appears in his proto-Ziggy outfit and haircut alongside the Spiders from Mars, already in their jumpsuits, for performances of Oh, You Pretty Things (not aired at the time and lost until 1981), Queen Bitch (the most rocking, swinging, ‘Ziggy’ track on Hunky Dory) and Five Years (to become the first track on The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars).
