'Teenage Wildlife' is my Bowie pick of the day. Always loved the guitars.

David Bowie, “The Jean Genie”, first aired on Top of the Pops January 4, 1973, then lost for nearly 40 years!

The video itself is extraordinary – 100% live, no miming, drenched in fuzz, and Bowie capping off the glam jam with a quote from John Lennon’s harmonica solo from “Love Me Do (!!!) – but so’s the saga of the video’s rediscovery in 2011.

The BBC had taped over the original recording (as they tended to do in those days), and thought it was gone for good. It featured a unique spherical lens (it starts at about 1:30 in) developed by one of the cameramen that day, John Henshall – who, it turns out, had taped Bowie’s performance for himself, as a demo for anyone who might be interested in hiring the lens (and his services) for their own projects. He had no idea that anybody had been looking for it, because it wasn’t lost to him. He’d never mislaid his copy of it!
