From “The Man Who Sold The World” through to “Let’s Dance” what’s not to like?

I can still vividly remember hearing “Diamond Dogs” in an older mates car on the way to a cricket match when I was fifteen. “This ain’t rock and roll, this is genocide” – never really got what that meant but I was hooked and instantly started obsessively devouring whatever Bowie books and records I could get hold of. Being the mid-eighties and Glam being Everything, along with “DD” “Ziggy” and “Aladdin Sane” were and still are big faves. Peerless.

Obviously “Hunky Dory” is a masterpiece, fuller than any record has a right to be with genuine classics and the brilliant “Bewlay Brothers”.

From 76/77 “Station To Station” and “Low” might just be my favourites these days, it’s definitely when he had his best haircut. The title track of “Station” is my number one Bowie track and “Golden Years”, “Stay” and “Wild Is The Wind” show that the man could turn his hand to anything and make it work, despite, or maybe because of “the side effects of the cocaine”. “Low” has a side of bleak instrumentals which will hardly win over any sceptics but the seven song first side is great if you like weird sounding electro pop. And Bowie’s all over Iggy’s “The Idiot” and “Lust For Life” from the same time.

There’s a common opinion that “Let’s Dance” was his first bad album but if you look at the sleeve it says “Produced by Nile Rodgers” and very few records that have that written on it are anything other than wonderful. I love this period and just wished I’d gone to see the “Serious Moonlight” tour, great setlist and band, a tape of the Milton Keynes show was the first bootleg I ever bought. The Captain’s list of boots is spot on, although if you can have “The Thin White Duke” (released on the Station To Station reissue) you should include “Santa Monica 72” as well, it’s out now and is the best way of hearing just how good the Spiders were.

I saw him for the first time in 1987 on the “Glass Spider” tour for the poor “Don’t Let Me Down” and although it was a great day out looking back the show and music was a bit drab. The Captain’s loyalty is greater than mine as apart from the odd piece of brilliance there’s not much to report since then, “Heathen” is starting to be looked at favourably but his drum and bass stuff sounded like Granddad playing with the kids. Keep meaning to download the “Toy” bootleg as well, sounds interesting.
