The classic David Bowie track ‘Memory Of A Free Festival‘ was featured on the Epix series ‘Berlin Station‘ this week — Season 1, Episode 10, “Oratorio Berlin“. The song was heard during the last scenes of the season finale episode, and during the credits.
‘Memory Of A Free Festival‘ was originally released on Bowie’s self-titled album in 1969 in its full seven-minute-plus version. It was then re-released as a shortened single in 1970, but did not do well commercially, although die-hard Bowie fans loved it.
It made a re-appearance on Bowie’s album Space Oddity in 1972.
Listen to the full version of the track below. Because, while ‘Memory Of A Free Festival’ in its two parts still had impact, you only get Bowie’s real intent when you hear it in its entirety.
