David BowieAladdin Sane ... LP
RCA, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $24.99
One of our favorite David Bowie albums ever! Aladdin Sane was a real turning point for Bowie – recorded on the heels of the tremendously popular Ziggy Stardust album, but really pushing the boundaries past the more straight-ahead rock and glam of that record. Instead of just sitting on his laurels, Bowie tripped out into a wilder, weirder world with this one – mixing together elements of some of the baroque arrangements of early records, with the meaner leaner sound of the 70s – populating the songs with freaks, weirdos, and odd characters that gave the whole thing a really creepy edge. The whole thing's an oft-overlooked gem that, to us, is truly one of Bowie's most magical moments – and titles include "Drive In Saturday", "Panic In Detroit", "Aladdin Sane", "Watch That Man", "The Jean Genie", "The Prettiest Star", "Time", and "Lady Grinning Soul".

RCA, 1976. Very Good ... $19.99
Almost a "greatest hit" of "greatest hits" collection – given the importance of this album to the David Bowie catalog! Sure, it compiles tracks from other releases – but it also was the album that gave the world the killer cut "John I'm Only Dancing" – one of the key cuts in Bowie's gender revision in the 70s – and a title that was previously only out as a single! Alongside that gem, you also get a fantastic run of greatness from Bowie's first chapter of recording – the kind of cuts that would make other singers weep – including "Space Oddity", "Changes", "Ziggy Stardust", "Suffragette City", "Jean Genie", "Diamond Dogs", "Rebel Rebel", "Young Americans", "Fame", and "Golden Years".

David BowieClareville Grove Demos (3 X 7 inch set) ... 7-inch
Parlophone, 1969. New Copy 3 x 7 inch (pic cover)... $28.99 31.98
Very strange sounds from a real turning point in the career of David Bowie – demo tracks recorded in his own apartment, with accompaniment from John "Hutch" Hutchinson, who was in David's Feathers trio with Hermione Farthingale! This is a real lost chapter in Bowie's career – material between his early Decca work and his explosive "Space Oddity" hit – and tunes include some key steps along the way, although done in a very different, stripped-down mode. Titles include a demo take of "Space Oddity" with almost-final lyrics; the tune "Lover To The Dawn", which would transform into "Cygnet Committee"; a different version of "An Occasional Dream"; the more obscure "Ching A Ling"; a great take on "Let Me Sleep Beside You", sweeter than usual; and compelling harmony vocals with Hutch on "Life Is A Circus". 7-inch, Vinyl record

David BowieDiamond Dogs ... LP
RCA, 1974. Very Good- Gatefold ... $18.99
David Bowie at his most sinister for the 70s – a landmark set that combines the harder rocking sound of the Ziggy Stardust years with the more sophisticated theatrics of Aladdin Sane – in a style that features some of the darkest, most political work of Bowie's career! There's a depth to the record that goes way beyond the silly, sensational cover image – and there's also a sonic complexity that's wonderful too – a songs slide into each other with a deftness that never fails to amaze us! The album grew out of a failed project based around George Orwell's famous book 1984 – but the rights to that story were denied by the family – so Bowie went in his own directly, and honestly came up with work that was far better than if he'd done any sort of slavish reading of the novel (Rick Wakeman famously failed in that territory – and the Eurhythmics fared just slightly better.) The whole thing's great, and titles include "Diamond Dogs", "1984", "Sweet Thing", "Candidate", "Rebel Rebel", and "Big Brother". LP, Vinyl record album

David BowieLet's Dance ... LP
EMI, 1983. Very Good+ ... $16.99
A mega-hit for David Bowie – and an album that reduced some of the complexity of previous efforts, yet still managed to hold onto all that was great! There's definitely some massive chart material here, but the tunes are still some of the best of their time, pop-wise – tracks that bring forward the best dark corners of the Bowie mythos, and refine them slightly for a new generation – always in tunefully compelling ways. And despite the crossover fame of the set, it holds up surprisingly well over the years – possibly because of that status. Titles include "Modern Love", "China Girl", "Let's Dance", "Without You", "Criminal World", and "Cat People" (in a different take than the soundtrack version.) LP, Vinyl record album

David BowieSpying Through A Keyhole – Demos & Unreleased Songs (4 x 7 inch box set) ... 7-inch
Parlophone, Late 60s. New Copy 4 x 7 inch set ... $31.99 34.98
A fantastic treasure for David Bowie fans – the first-ever vinyl appearance of some really wonderful material recorded right at a time when he was really finding his voice! A few cuts here are demos that offer very different versions of the better-known tracks, and other tunes are completely new discoveries all together – and, as with just about any other "bonus" Bowie rarities, the quality level is amazing – material that shows just how much genius he always brought to the game, as these are cuts that would have been classics from just about any other artist. Titles include "Mother Grey (demo)", "In The Heat Of The Morning (demo)", "Goodbye 3D Joe (demo)", "Love All Around (demo)", "London Bye Ta Ta (demo)", "Angel Angel Grubby Face (demo 1)", "Angel Angel Grubby Face (demo 2)", "Space Oddity (demo excerpt)", and "Space Oddity (demo w/Hutch)". 7-inch, Vinyl record

David BowieYoung Americans (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, 1975. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.99
A brilliant soul album! That's right, we said SOUL album! Bowie was at the height of his Ziggy Stardust fame when this one was recorded – a drastic left-turn in styles, forged during a point in his American tour when he could take a break, head to Philly, plug in at the Sigma Sound Studios, and come up with some fantastic little soul tunes, thanks to help from Luther Vandross! The album sparkles with the best sound of Luther's early work – and you'll hear more than a bit of Luther's work on his own, and his tunes with Gregg Diamond on the set. Features the sublime tracks "Win", "Fascination", "Right", "Somebody Up There Likes Me", and "Can You Hear Me" – as well as the hits "Young Americans" and "Fame". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ David BowieZiggy Stardust & The Spiders From Mars ... LP
RCA, 1973. Near Mint- ... $29.99
Arguably one of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time – and the key flowering of the partnership between David Bowie and Mick Ronson! The guitars here are heavy – so much so that the record's always crossed over big with crowds who are always suspicious of Bowie's artier work of the 70s – and represented a crucial moment when his groundbreaking music also found a large mainstream audience as well. And despite the fact that Ziggy's an androgynous space rocker with a spurious pedigree, the manufactured posturing of the album's come to be taken quite literally over the years – a vivid text of alienation, expression, and redemption – served up beautifully over a host of classic tracks that include "Five Years", "Soul Love", "Moonage Daydream", "Suffragette City", and "Ziggy Stardust" – all further proof of Bowie's 70s ability to slide in wherever he wanted with ease!

David Bowie, Marlene Dietrich, & OthersJust A Gigolo ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $12.99
A mix of sounds and styles for this film set in Weimar Berlin – with Marlene Dietrich as a madam with male gigolos – one of whom is played by David Bowie, at a time when he was famously living in West Berlin, and working with Brian Eno! The film's nothing like that at all, though – as it's a period piece, with performances by Kim Novak and David Hemmings, the latter of whom directed – and the music is an unusual mix of imagined 20s elements, but often given an odd late 70s spin. The real highlight is "Revolutionary Song" – an odd tune written by Bowie, and which features him scat singing this really compelling melody with echoes of Brecht. Marlena Dietrich also delivers one of her last recordings – a haunting take on "Just A Gigolo" – which is then oddly served up as a disco tune by The Village People at the end! The set also features a mix of other instrumentals and vocal tracks – with work by by Manhattan Transfer, Pasadena Roof Orchestra, and The Gunther Fischer Orchestra. CD features 22 tracks in all – with four version of "The Revolutionary Song", and detailed notes on this very unusual chapter in Bowie's career. CD

✨✧ David BowieBoys Keep Swinging (2017 Tony Visconti mix)/I Pray Ole (picture disc) ... 7-inch
Parlophone, Late 70s. New Copy (pic cover, reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great Bowie song from the late 70s – one that maybe marked his return to the clubs, and with a sensibility that both addresses some of the gender issues of earlier years, and the spirit of creativity that was alive and well in the Berlin scene of the 70s! Yet there's also an unusually positive vibe, too – almost Bowie reworking Tom Sawyer – a bit before Rush had the same idea. "I Pray Ole" is a tune that was kind of "lost" during Bowie's late Berlin years – resurfacing here in a 1991 mix by Bowie and Tony Visconti. "Boys" is also in a 2017 Tony Visconti mix too. 7-inch, Vinyl record

RCA, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the three great collaborations between David Bowie and Brian Eno – and possibly the ultimate statement from his years in Berlin! The album's got some tunes that still show some of the guitar power of the early 70s Bowie – but it's also got some of the beautiful spacier moments brought forward on Low – and which are every bit the Brian Eno of Another Green World. The balance is beautiful – stark and dark on one half, then airy and spacious on the next – handled without any sense of gimmickry, and a bold mainstream experiment that still resonates strongly today. Titles include "Beauty & The Beast", "Joe The Lion", "Heroes", "Sons Of The Silent Age", "Blackout", "V-2 Schneider", "Sense Of Doubt", "Moss Garden", "Neukoln", and "The Secret Life Of Arabia".

The brilliant consummation of Bowie's late 70s years in Berlin – a record that showed he could take the experiments in sound he was crafting with Brian Eno, and turn them back into the kind of creepily catchy rock tunes that first made him a legend! Eno's help on the record is still quite strong – heard very well in the record's use of odd electronics and exotic themes – of a sort that Eno would later explore on his own with David Byrne. But the real charm here is pure Bowie – with an unabashed flair for a dramatic lyric, a well-chosen use of a heavier guitar, and a sense of personality and poise that makes the record one of his most unified ever! Titles include "Red Sails", "Look Back In Anger", "Repetition", "Boys Keep Swinging", "Red Money", "Yassassin", and "DJ". LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1977. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Thin White Duke turns to the east – and gets a whole new sound with help from Brian Eno! The album is an amazing departure from some of David Bowie's previous work – a set that's sparer, more spacious, and which is often instrumental – quite a statement, given Bowie's reputation as a songwriter at the time! It's almost like Bowie's shaking off all the confused stardom of the previous parts of the 70s – and is stepping forward as a new being from a new space – cleaner, leaner, and simpler than before – but hardly evacuated of soul at all, certainly not as much as you might guess from the Man Who Fell To Earth image on the cover. Titles include "Speed Of Life", "Be My Wife", "A New Career In A New Town", "Warsawza", "Art Decade", "Weeping Wall", and "Sound & Vision". LP, Vinyl record album

The set also features "The Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud" – one of our favorite early Bowie tunes ever, and one that sounds definitely different in the mono mix too!

Quite possibly David Bowie's first complete moment of genius – an incredibly-formed album that's filled with tunes beyond definition and description! There's still some traces of the earlier madman in the mix, but the overall sound is much more rock-heavy – although not without the fuzzed-up and full-on guitars of Space Oddity or Man Who Sold the World – and often augmented with a bit of strings and softer touches that really bring out the humanity in the songs. The balance here is amazing – as is the fact that a few short years before, Bowie was singing "The Laughing Gnome", but is here one of the most sensitive songwriters of his generation. Tunes are quirky and personal, and titles include "Changes", "Oh You Pretty Things", "Andy Warhol", "Life On Mars", "Kooks", and "Queen Bitch". LP, Vinyl record album

A completely cool little package – one that offers up the first-ever release of ten tracks that David Bowie recorded in his apartment to give as demos to Mercury Records – material done right before his "Space Oddity" fame, with help from John Hutch Hutchinson on guitar! The set comes as a replica of a large reel-to-reel tape box – complete with fabric on the edge and interior, along with other inserts inside – all of which make you feel like you're getting a special package right from the man himself – as some early statement of his genius from a time when he was far more obscure. Some of the cuts here are very early takes on classics, a few more unusual originals, and even a few covers – titles that include "Life Is A Circus", "When I'm Five", "Love Song", "Lover To The Dawn", "I'm Not Quite", "Occasional Dream", "Janine", "Conversation Piece", "Ching A Ling", and an early take on "Space Oddity".

A tremendous live set cut during the height of David Bowie's years in Berlin – and the kind of performance that showed that his more experimental work from this time could be every bit as appealing as the classics! The first half of the set features some amazing numbers from the Heroes and Low years – presented here with some darker orchestrations that sound really wonderful, and which slightly recast the styles of the tunes on the albums. The second half mixes in some older classics with a few surprising bits – making for the kind of "star appeal" that must have been welcome to more mainstream Bowie fans during these more obscure years. 20 tracks in all – including "Beauty & The Beast", "Breaking Glass", "Speed Of Life", "What In The World", "Heroes", "Warszawa", "Be My Wife", "Soul Love", "Star", "Art Decade", "Alabama Song", "TVC 15", and "Ziggy Stardust".

Cherry Red (UK), Early 70s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99
A pair of great albums from singer Dana Gillespie – and a huge amount of bonus material too, including some rare promo and demo tracks that have never been available to the public! The set kicks off with the Weren't Born A Man album – a real turning point in the career of Dana Gillespie – a singer who started out as a British folkie in the 60s, but who really transformed through a host of different modes as the 70s moved in – including a key role in the long-running Catch My Soul stage show, and an intimate friendship with David Bowie! Gillespie's not exactly like Bowie, but on the record she does find a very special, intimate space of her own – helped partly by the production and arrangements of Mick Ronson, who also works with some of the Spiders Of Mars in the backing – and also in part by Bowie, who lets Dana sing his great tune "Andy Warhol" here in a version that's maybe even better than his own! Yet Gillespie is definitely at the helm throughout – a superb songwriter, and a great singer too – intimate one minute, bold the next, and quite far from her roots in folk. Titles include "Andy Warhol", "Weren't Born A Man", "Mother Don't Be Frightened", "All Gone", "Eternal Showman", "Dizzy Heights", and "Stardom Road (parts 1 & 2)". Ain't Gonna Play No Second Fiddle is the second album that Dana Gillespie recorded for the Mainman productions label – and one that really has her stepping out and finding a voice that's all her own! Dana's a bit hard to peg stylistically – somewhat rock, but with occasional gentleness that's borrowed from her folk roots – often given a slight glam twist in the production, but not really a glam singer at all – in part because she's often got some deeper currents in her lyrics! Gillespie's got this strength in the lead that should have made her a much bigger star – an ability to step sideways to different modes from track to track, yet make you feel like the whole thing is very much part of her own master plan. Titles include "Get My Rocks Off", "Really Love The Man", "Hold Me Gently", "Pack Your Bags", "Getting Through To Me", and "Wanderlust". 2CD set features a huge amount of interesting material – including 5 tracks from Dana's 1971 promo record that she shared with David Bowie, 5 more demos from October of 1974, after her second album – but never issued – the original demo for "Andy Warhol", an outtake of "Man Size Job", different Mick Ronson arrangements for "Lavender Hill" and "Never Knew", and the Libido single tracks "Hold On To Your Fire" and "Weren't Born A Man".

Donny McCaslinBlow ... CD
Motema, 2018. New Copy ... $5.99 14.99
Saxophonist Donny McCaslin opens up a whole new side of his music here – by letting in a host of guests vocalists, whose presence links the record to some of the work that Donny did with David Bowie near the end of his life! We're not saying this is a Bowie record, and with the presence of McCaslin on so many solos, it's also not entirely a rock record either – but there are some strong rhythms and plenty of guitars – and about half the tracks have vocals, from singers who include Ryan Dahle, Jeff Taylor, Sun Kil Moon, and Gail Ann Dorsey. Dahle kicks off the record, and maybe sets the tone for a bit – but things change up nicely, as McCaslin hits some more familiar moments too – on tenor, flute, alto flute, and clarinet. Titles include "Club Kidd", "What About The Body", "Break The Bond", "New Kindness", "Eye Of The Beholder", "Tempest", "Beast", "Great Destroyer", and "Tiny Kingdom". CD

John Phillips, Stomu Yamashta, & OthersMan Who Fell To Earth – Original Soundtrack ... CD
Universal (UK), 1976. New Copy 2 CDs ... $19.99
David Bowie's on the cover, but the music here is from a much wider array of musical sources – in a surprising array of instrumental and vocal tracks that really live up to the madness of the famous film! The key contributor here is John Phillips – who not only gives us some excellent vocal tracks that are in the manner of his Wolfking album, but also handles a few instrumental numbers that are pretty compelling – and offset by more offbeat percussion tracks by Stomu Yamashta, who's the other key artist on the original material! There's also some familiar pop moments from Louis Armstrong and the Kingston Trio – but most of the music is original. Titles include "America", "Jazz", "Rhumba Boogie", "Space Capsule", "Desert Shack", "Window", "Alberto", "Liar Liar", "Jazz II", and "Bluegrass Breakdown" by John Phillips; "Poker Dice", "Wind Words", "Mandala", "One Way", "Memory Of Hiroshima", and "33 1/3" by Stomu Yamashta; "Venus" and "Mars" by The Bournemouth Symphony; "Love Is Coming Back" by Genevive Waite; and "Blueberry Hill" by Louis Armstrong.

✨✧ Biff RoseChildren Of Light ... LP
Tetragrammaton, 1968. Near Mint- ... $4.99
Tremendous work from Biff Rose – a near-lost singer-songwriter from the late 60s, barely remembered as the author of "Fill Your Heart" from David Bowie's Hunky Dory album – but an incredible talent that we'd rank right up there with Van Dyke Parks or early Randy Newman for sheer American brilliance! As in the work of Parks, there's a quality here that's completely unique – informed by the freedoms of the folk generation, but tuned with older-styled arrangements that while full, still manage to convey a sense of person and presence – as in some of the best early recordings of Leonard Cohen. And like Cohen, Rose has a really poetically-styled approach to his lyrics – far beyond the sardonic eye of folkies, or the indulgence of hippies – and infused with a sense of hope that crackles out of the tunes along with his own crackly vocals. Vocally, we'd almost link Rose to Bob Dorough for a sheer "oh what the hell I'm just gonna sing this" approach – and like Dorough, there's no silliness at all – but real sincerity where we'd never expect it, in a way that leaves us breathless. Children Of Light features spare arrangements and a bit of moog from Van Dyke Parks and Nick Woods! Tracks include "Ain't No Great Day", "Just Like A Man", "American Waltz", "Son In Moon", "Color Blind Blues", "Children Of Light", and "To Baby". LP, Vinyl record album

Tucker ZimmermanTen Songs (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Regal Zonophone/RPM (UK), 1969. New Copy ... $6.99 13.99
An excellent album from US singer/songwriter Tucker Zimmerman – the product of a number of in-depth recording sessions in 1969 London with Tony Visconti – who plays bass and guitar on most of the record too! Zimmerman might have been more of a folkie in someone else's hands, but Visconti brings some great electric elements to his acoustic core – a bit like he does with David Bowie on the mellower songs for Hunky Dory – by adding in key added touches that flesh out the sound in a modern London mode – including contributions from Aynsley Dunbar on drums, Shawn Phillips on guitar and sitar, and Rick Wakeman on organ and piano! Tucker's always at the core, though – a great songwriter with this biting style on his best vocals – and titles include "October Mornings", "A Face That Hasn't Sold Out", "The Roadrunner", "Children Of Fear", "The Wind Returns Into The Night", and "Running Running From Moment To Moment". CD features a number of bonus tracks, some unreleased – including "The Red Wind", "Moodog", "Les Visions De Rimbaud", "Non C'E Niente Mai", and "En Memoire De Jean Genet". CD

VariousFab Gear – The British Beat Explosion & Its Aftershocks 1963 to 1967 (6CD set) ... CD
Cherry Red (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy 6CDs ... Just Sold Out!
A deep deep look at a side of the British 60s scene that didn't always make big waves here in the US – but one that had a huge influence on UK sounds for years to come! The mighty book-like package documents the rich stream of sounds that exploded during the beat group years – a moment that was partly graced by some of the names that we'd know here as the Brit Invasion, but which soon moved off into much more expansive sounds that include mod moments, freakbeat grooves, and a fair bit of tunes influenced by American jazz and soul! The 6CD set features a whopping 165 tracks in all, plus a huge booklet of notes – and a number of the tracks are pulled from the Pye Records catalog – one of the most important Brit labels of the period – but the set also includes lot of bits from elsewhere too. Includes work by The Rogers, Marmalade, The Baskervilles, The Web, The Mighty Atoms, Glenda Collins, The Mike Stuart Span, Bobbi Rio & The Revelles, Carl Wayne & The Vikings, The Mike Cotton Sound, Ray Singer, Marilyn Powell, Just Four Men, Twinkle, Tony Jackson, The Cops N Robbers, Major Rowley, Paddy Klaus & Gibson, David Bowie & The Lower Third, The Lancastrians, New Faces, The Limeys, Mick & Malcolm, Kind, Episode Six, and many others!

✨✧ Gary SimonsArt & Ambience – A Chance Meeting – Brian Eno Solo Albums, Collaborations, & Productions (hardcover) ... Book
Gary Simons, 2018. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A beautiful discography, dedicated to the music of Brian Eno – and one that features all his many side projects, solo recordings, and other performances on record from the start of the 70s onwards! The book is hardcover, with full color pages throughout – and each entry reproduces an album cover in color, along with dates, other information, and Eno's key contributions to the records – sometimes huge, sometimes small, and taken together, a wonderful testament to his non-stop efforts to change the face of modern music over the past few decades! The book also has a helpful appendix, which defines some key terms and moments in Eno's career – and interestingly enough, his most profitable work, with U2, is relegated to this section – so that the book can focus on all is many solo recordings, and work with Roxy Music, Robert Fripp, Talking Heads, David Bowie, and many others.

✨✧ Klaus NomiKlaus Nomi (black & white vinyl edition) ... LP
RCA/Real Gone, 1982. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Klaus Nomi's standing here on the cover with the oversized cabaret costume he used famously backing David Bowie – but this early solo album definitely has the singer very much in his own territory overall! Some of the songs are a weird reworking of older European cabaret mode, or Brechtian song ideas – given this strange post-punk twist, and set to rockish backings that are a very unusual contrast to the more operatic leanings in Klaus' vocal style – almost this Liquid Sky moment where an amnesiac opera singer wanders into a downtown New York club and happens to take the stage. Other tracks are moodier and more spacious – and work together with the straighter rock songs to make the whole thing feel like a larger conceptual album, even though that sort of thing wasn't really what Klaus, or the rest of the scene were going for at the time. Titles include "Nomi Song", "You Don't Own Me", "Nomi Chant", "Total Eclipse", "The Cold Song", and "Keys of Life". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Iggy PopIdiot ... LP
RCA, 1977. Very Good ... Out Of Stock
IIggy's first proper solo record, and a strange morass of junkie desperation and guttural punk funk! The Idiot is the ultimately the culmination of a very smart decision to move away from the guitar roar of the Stooges and closer to the sounds his longtime champion David Bowie was experimenting with at the time, with a little bit of Lou Reed for good measure – but make no mistakes, this is Iggy's show. It's as fascinating overall as it is impressive on a more visceral level, with heavy bass rhythms and keys intergral to the sound, and weary latenight storytelling that trips you out on contact. All tunes co-written by Bowie, who would go on to make a lot of money off "China Girl" a few years into the 80s when the world was more ready for it, plus the classic "Nightclubbing", "Sister Midnight", "Baby", "Dum, Dum Boys", "Tiny Girls" and "Mass Production".

✨✧ Steve WilsonSit Back, Relax, & Unwind ... LP
Brown Brothers/JMI, 2017. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
One of the most beautiful records we've heard from Steve Wilson in years – a set that's got an easygoing, open flow – in a way that really lives up to its title! Wilson is wonderful on alto and soprano sax – blowing in his most soulful style, but also pushing himself a bit too – really hitting these spiritual currents we don't always hear, in a way that has us re-evaulating his music all over again! Equally great on the record is keyboardist Ray Angry – who plays some sublime Fender Rhodes, as well as Yamaha C7 and Hammond B3 – in ways that are never too smooth, and often a bit edgey – making a perfect match for Wilson's horns. The rest of the quartet is great, too – rhythm that's rock-solid, but also nicely loose – with Ben Williams on bass and Willie Jones III on drums. Titles include "Jake's Place", "Rest Of Our Times", "Sit Back Relax & Unwind", "6/74", and a very cool instrumental reworking of David Bowie's "Space Oddity", with just Wilson's soprano and Angry's piano.

A very strange little album – one of those records that was created without any interest in an audience – but which has gone on to become the stuff of legend over time! The set features vocal performances by a group of rural school students recorded in the mid 70s – often performing alongside just a bit of sad-tinged piano or guitar, as they deliver these surprisingly compelling versions of songs from their generation – tunes by David Bowie, Wings, The Beach Boys, and others – in versions that are completely different than the originals. The whole thing's about as strange as you can imagine – and has had a huge amount of attention and followers over the years. Titles include "Band On The Run", "God Only Knows", "Space Oddity", "Venus & Mars", "Wildfire", and "Calling Occupants Of Interplanetary Craft". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Darren PihGlam – The Performance Of Style ... Book
Tate (UK), 2013. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic look at the artwork and style of glam – the movement that's usually known best through its big musical proponents – who include David Bowie, Roxy Music, and T Rex! Yet glam was way more than just a few fuzzy hit records in the early 70s – as the book traces a legacy that begins with Warhol and pop art in the 60s, then moves through a love of European trash later in the decade, to a point when glam allowed so much great interplay between then-opposite poles – high and low, male and female, straight and gay – and many other territories that were easily criss-crossed by the movement. The book was put together as part of a big glam exhibition at the Tate in London – and features writings by Simon Reynolds, Mike Kelly, Judith Watt, Neil Mulholland, and others – alongside some really fantastic photos – artwork, record covers, publications, and hundreds of other striking images from the time. The back even features a great glam timeline – showing the evolution of the genre in different forms from the 60s onward – and the whole thing is softcover, 160 pages, and full color throughout.

✨✧ Iggy PopTV Eye 1977 Live ... CD
Virgin, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic concert counterpart to the late 70s RCA Records revival of the career of Iggy Pop – and, like the best of that work, a set that features strong contributions from David Bowie! Bowie both produced with Iggy, and plays on half the material on the set – playing this very cool live-treated piano in a quartet behind Iggy's vocals – which makes for a really wonderful sound next to the guitar! Bowie's role is filled by Scott Thurston on the other tracks – playing piano, harmonica, and a bit of electronics – but as you'd guess, Iggy's the real star of the show – really blowing us away with his sharp-edge performance, on tracks that include "Funtime", "Sixteen", "I Got A Right", "TV Eye", "Lust For Life", "Dirt", "Nightclubbing", and "I Wanna Be Your Dog".
