Answer:  MICKS TAPE

(A fine homophonic pun!  And, the answer to the hidden/implied question is “Dancing In The Street”.  Of course, it was a remake of the Martha and the Vandellas 1964 classic.  Other bands have also covered it over the years.  I don’t think that Bowie and Jagger voices necessarily blended all that well, but they were both at the top of their games at the time.

All familiar old clue words today.  Although, we do have a couple of new jumbles, in “grauti” and “mteenc”.  I was able to see them all right away.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  It didn’t give anything away.  And, I can see some folks struggling to come up with the final answer.
