When he achieved international fame in the early 70s, Bowie brought a new, highly conscious approach to stardom that involved the frequent creation of new personae. No wonder that when he made his film acting debut in 1976, he seemed so good at it: acting was what a large part of his career was about. Born in Brixton, South London, as David Jones, the singer was already playing in bands by his late teens. He changed his name to avoid confusion with Davy Jones of the Monkees. His early-60s work was rock and blues oriented, then he turned to an Anthony Newley-style expressive show-music approach. But his breakthrough British hit "Space Oddity" (1969) was a folkie ballad about an astronaut who doesn't come home. By the time of HUNKY DORY (1971), Bowie had turned again more toward rock, using the first of many strong collaborators, guitarist Mick Ronson.,It was Bowie's concept album THE RISE AND FALL OF ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE SPIDERS FROM MARS (1972) that made him a giant star in England, where he adopted the image of his fantasy rocker, with bright red hair and futuristic stage suits. In America, "Space Oddity" became a belated hit in 1973, the year Bowie "retired" from stage work only to return in 1974 with an even more elaborate stage show. More an established star than a real record-seller in the US, Bowie finally hit #1 with "Fame" (cowritten by John Lennon and Luther Vandross) in 1975. The late 70s found him collaborating with electronics whiz Brian Eno. He made a major commercial comeback in 1983 with LET'S DANCE, produced by ex-Chic coleader Nile Rodgers. Bowie's work in the 80s was inconsistent, but as late as 1990 he was still able to tour the US, playing football stadiums. This was supposedly his farewell tour (again) before he turned full attention to a group project, Tin Machine. But by 1992 it seemed likely he would return to solo work. ~ William Ruhlmann ---------- Roots & Influences ---------- Beatles Newley, Anthony Reed, Lou Velvet Underground ---------- Bibliography ---------- Gillman, Peter & Leni|Alias David Bowie |Hodder Hopkins, Jerry |Bowie |Elm Tree Books Miles |Bowie in His Own Words |Omnibus Kelleher (ed.) |David Bowie: A Biography in W|Sire/Chappell Mus Cann, Kevin |David Bowie: A Chronology |Vermillion Books Haggard, Stuart |David Bowie: An Illustrated D|Omnibus Carr, Roy; Murray, Ch|David Bowie: An Illustrated R|Aaron Books, USA Claire, Vivian |David Bowie: A Portrait in Wo|Flash Books Lynch, Kate |David Bowie: A Rock 'N'Roll O|Proteus Sinclair, Paul |David Bowie Biography, The |Privately printed Miles; Chariesworth, |David Bowie Black Book: The I|Omnibus Verlant, Gilles |David Bowie: Portrait de l'Ar|Albin Michel, Par Charlesworth, Chris |David Bowie: Profile |Proteus No editor listed |David Bowie Rotterdam 87 |Sytze Annema Tremlett, George |David Bowie Story, The |Futura Charlesworth, Chris |David Bowie: The Archive |Bobcat Books Jal de la Parra, Pimm|David Bowie: The Concert Tape|Titan Claire, Vivian |David Bowie!

"Watch That Man" is a fine rocker that manages to draw inspiration from the Stones' EXILE ON MAIN STREET, while not totally abandoning the tight-assed rhythmic stiffness inherent in the glam sound. Other highlights: "Jean Genie," "Cracked Actor," and "Panic in Detroit." ~ Rick Clark ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Trevor Bolder - Bass David Bowie - prd/arr/v/g/hrc/sax/k Mac Cormack - Vocal Ken Fordham - Sax Juanita "Honey" Franklin - Vocal (background) Mike Garson - Piano Linda Lewis - Vocal (background) G A MacCormack - Vocal (background) Mike Moran - Engineer Mick Ronson - eng/g/p/v Ken Scott - Producer, Engineer Mick "Woody" Woodmansey - Drums -------- Album Tracks -------- Watch That Man Aladdin Sane Drive In Saturday Panic In Detroit Cracked Actor Time Prettiest Star, The Let's Spend The Night Together Jean Genie, The Lady Grinning Soul ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Another Face Artist : David Bowie Rating : OK Genre : Rock Date : 1981 (release) AMG ID : R000031308 --------- Album Releases --------- 1981 MC Decca 17 ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Carlos Alomar - Guitar Gui Andresino - Vocal Adrian Belew - Guitar Trevor Bolder - Bass David Bowie - v/g/k/sax Ava Cherry - Vocal Robin Clark - Vocal Terry Cox - Drums Dennis Davis - Percussion Brian Eno - Keyboards, Synthesizer Herbie Flowers - Bass Robert Fripp - Guitar Mike Garson - Keyboards Richard Grando - Wind Simon House - Violin Michael Kamen - Keyboards Antonia Maass - Vocal Sean Mayes - Keyboards George Murray - Bass Andy Newmark - Drums Tony Newman - Drums Warren Peace - Vocal Roger.

Back in 1983, the same team concocted the sterile dance music of (ironically his best-selling) LET'S DANCE album. As a major admirer over the years of Bowie's chameleon epics and more experimental forays, I was in no mood for a LD reprise. I'm pleased to report that my fears were unfounded. While modern dance tones do lay the foundation, Black Tie White Noise owes much of its rhythmic debt to the icy Euro atmosphere of Station To Station. The clipped beat of that album's Stay and Golden Years permeate his cover of Cream's I Feel Free (guitar solo courtesy of former Spiders From Mars bandmate Mick Ronson) and surface elsewhere almost as a recurring theme. Even echoes of the radical Low emerge on first single "Jump They Say" -- a song equally evocative of Bowie's track-record for exploring musical hinterlands as it is a reflection on the suicide of his stepbrother. Bowie feeds off collaborators aplenty on BTWN -- besides the much-missed Ronson, former ivory-tickler Mike Garson splashes his trademark Diamond Dogs cascades all over the instrumental Looking For Lester. Canadian guitarist Tony "Wild T" Springer offers the disc's most biting solo on a mutual-admiration-society cover of The Smiths' I Know It's Going To Happen Some Day, and Al B. Sure! duets soulfully on the Marvin Gaye-ish title track -- a lucid take on the current state of race relations ("Getting my facts from a Benetton ad/Looking through African eyes/Lit by the glare of an L.A. fire..."). Jazz great Lester Bowie gives great horn on several tracks, his trumpet blaring through the mix like a wild elephant smashing through a jungle clearing. Despite the welcome freshness and diversity of the pop/jazz/soul/dance brew -- and the presence of Ronson and Springer -- BTWN goes too far the opposite extreme of Bowie's Tin Machine project, suffering from a disappointing lack of guitars. Bowie's treated saxophone just doesn't fill the gap. In the long run, this is not going to dislodge Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, Station To Station, or even Low when I crave that Bowie fix. But it's undoubtedly the Thin White Duke's strongest outing in over ten years ... one that will not gather the dust of its recent predecessors. BLACK TIE WHITE NOISE deserves to rekindle interest in one of rock's most interesting personalities. ~ Roch Parisien ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Bowie Now Artist : David Bowie Rating : OK Genre : Rock Date : 1978 (release) AMG ID : R000002496 --------- Album Releases --------- RCA DJL1-2697 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Bowie Tech Pack - Limited Artist : David Bowie Rating : Good Genre : Rock AMG ID : R000002468 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Rykodisc 101426 Rykodisc 101426 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Changes Artist : David Bowie Rating : OK Genre : Rock Date : 1981 (release) AMG ID : R000031319 --------- Album Releases --------- 1981 LP RCA 43593 ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- David Bowie - v/g/k/sax ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Changesbowie Artist : David Bowie Rating : Best-of-Genre (First Pick) Charts : Billboard #039, entered Apr 7 , 1990, on charts 027 weeks Rock & Roll Disc #BBP: 03 Genre : Rock Time : 73:43 min Type : compilation Date : 1990 (release) AMG ID : R000002518 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- 1984 CD Rykodisc RCD-20171 1984 CS Rykodisc RACS-0171-2 1984 LP Rykodisc RALP-0171-2 1990 CD Atlantic RCD20171 CD Rykodisc 20171 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- ... the most comprehensive collection of Bowie's hits available to date.... ~ Dave Marsh, Rock & Roll Disc. Except for the substitution of a "Fame '90" remix over the original #1 hit, this is a great sampling of big cuts from all of Bowie's many phases, from "Space Oddity" to "Ashes to Ashes." While Bowie has had some classic albums, the uninitiated should start here. ~ Rick Clark ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Robert Aaron - Flute Carlos,G Alomar Trevor Bolder - Bass David Bowie -

Not as bleak and heavy-handed as LOW and HEROES, LODGER is a playful, innovative recording that offers a glimpse of Bowie's world view, both philosophically and musically. He made good use of the William Burroughs cut-up method of composition while writing the lyrics and the usual Bowie backup band of this period switched instruments for many of the tracks. "Move On" is actually "All the Young Dudes" played backwards! This excellent record, which contains the hits, "Boys Keep Swinging" and "D.J.," has been sadly underrated, but to my ears it sounds even better than it did in 1979. The CD version includes "I Pray Ole," an outtake from the original session, as well as a 1988 rerecording of "Look Back in Anger." ~ Jim Whalen, Roundup Newsletter. The third installment with Eno returns Bowie to a more conventional (but not necessarily more commercial) song structure. Production isn't so sharp sounding as HEROES, but it has many engaging moments, particularly the hopeful "Fantastic Voyage" and the goofy "D.J.," plus "Boys Keep Swinging," and the hyperdrive of "Look Back in Anger." ~ Rick Clark ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Carlos Alomar - Guitar Adrian Belew - Mandolin, Guitar David Bowie - com/g/v/p/prd/sax Dennis Davis - Drums Brian Eno - Synthesizer, Piano Reeves Gabriels - Guitar Simon House - Mandolin, Violin Simon House - Violin Ardal Kizicay - Drums, Bass Sean Mayes - Keyboards George Murray - Bass Roger.

Instead, he examined the excess and decay of the jet-set stardom he was personifying and the tolls it had taken on his personality. ~ John Floyd, Rock & Roll Disc. The first of several efforts with ex-Roxy Music sound painter Brian Eno, LOW is a willful departure from Bowie's pop persona. Short songs make their point and get out of the way on the first half, followed by four dense synth-instrumental soundscapes. ~ Rick Clark ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Carlos Alomar - Guitar David Bowie - prd/hrn/str/v/g/k/sax Dennis Davis - Percussion Brian Eno - mog/k/s Ricky Gardener - Guitar Mary Hopkin Visconti - Vocal Eduard Meyerm - Cello George Murray - Bass Iggy Pop - Vocal Tony Visconti - Producer The Wall - Engineer Roy Young - Piano, Organ -------- Album Tracks -------- Speed Of Life Breaking Glass What In The World Be My Wife New Career In A New Town, A Warszawa Art Decade Weeping Wall Speed Of Life Breaking Glass What In The World Sound And Vision Always Crashing In The Same Car Be My Wife Warzawa Art Decade Weeping Wall Subterraneans Some Are All Saints Sound and Vision ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Man Who Sold the World, The Artist : David Bowie Rating : Best-of-Artist Charts : Billboard #105, entered Nov 18, 1972, on charts 023 weeks Rock & Roll Disc #4/4.5 Genre : Rock Time : 53:09 min Date : 1971 (release) AMG ID : R000002479 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Rykodisc RCD-10132 CS Rykodisc RACS-10132 LP Rykodisc RALP-0132-2 1970 LP RCA 4816 1972 CD Atlantic RCD10132 CD Rykodisc 10132 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- ... a brain-crunching death rock collection, featuring a strange and unnatural-sounding production.... ~ Dave Marsh, Rock & Roll Disc. After the theatrical acoustic leanings of SPACE ODDITY, Bowie undertook a dark foray into British hard rock that at times attempted Cream-style free-for-alls, particularly "She Shook Me Cold." The strangely dense, bass-heavy production (courtesy of Tony Visconti), coupled with Bowie's disturbing imagery, provided some powerful moments. Musically, Tin Machine's discordant roots can be found here.

Guitar luminary Robert Fripp plays on almost every track and Pete Townshend makes a rare guest appearance on "Because You're Young." This disc also contains one of my favorite Bowie songs, "It's No Game," a scary anti-fascist rant that features Michi Hirota reciting the bitter lyrics in frenzied Japanese. Bowie addresses his own image in "Teenage Wildlife" and resurrects Major Tom for the hit, "Ashes to Ashes." The CD version features four bonus tracks recorded during the SCARY MONSTERS sessions: re-recordings of "Space Oddity" and "Panic in Detroit," a twisted version of the Brecht/Weill composition, "Alabama Song," and "Crystal Japan," which sounds like an outtake from the LOW sessions but was written for a Japanese saki commercial. ~ Jim Whalen, Roundup Newsletter. One of the better post-LOW efforts. Contains the hits "Fashion" and "Ashes to Ashes," and the dissonant rocker "It's No Game (Part 1)." Robert Fripp provides a wonderfully jarring racket on "It's No Game (Part 1)," the Tom Verlaine-penned "Kingdom Come," and several others. Pete Townshend guests on "Because You're Young." CD includes four bonus tracks, a nice version of Kurt Weill and Bert Brecht's "Alabama Song," an instrumental that could've come off of LOW, and 1979 re-recordings of "Space Oddity" and "Panic in Detroit" of interest only to hardcore fans ~ Rick Clark ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Carlos Alomar - Guitar Roy Bittan - Keyboards David Bowie - v/g/k/sax/eng Andy Clark - Synthesizer Dennis Davis - Percussion Robert Fripp - Guitar Chuck Hammer - Guitar Michi Hirota - Vocal Lynn Maltland - Vocal (background) Hisahi Miura - Speech/speaker/speaking part George Murray - Bass Chris Porter - Vocal (background) Pete Townshend - Guitar, Vocal Tony Visconti - g/vcb/eng -------- Album Tracks -------- It's No Game Up The Hill Backwards Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) Ashes To Ashes Fashion Teenage Wildlife Scream Like A Baby Kingdom Come Because You're Young It's No Game Space Oddity Panic in Detroit Crystal Japan Alabama Song ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Second Face, A Artist : David Bowie Rating : Poor Genre : Rock Date : 1983 (release) AMG ID : R000031318 --------- Album Releases --------- 1983 LP Decca 71 ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- David Bowie - v/g/k/sax ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Serious Moonlight Artist : David Bowie Rating : not rated yet Genre : Rock Type : video Date : 1984 (release) AMG ID : R000085548 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- Pioneer 23426 1984 Pioneer Artists Video 097 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Singles 1969-1993 Artist : David Bowie Rating : Best-of-Genre (First Pick) Genre : Rock Date : 1993 (approx.)

It pointed towards a harder, lyrical approach ... while not totally shedding his earlier Anthony Newley affectations. ~ Dave Marsh, Rock & Roll Disc. Originally titled MAN OF WORDS MAN OF MUSIC, this release was a transitional effort from Bowie's earlier Anthony Newley affectations on Decca. Tracks range from the Bob Dylan-influenced future-shock epic "Cygnet Committee" to lightweight rockers like "Janine." This includes "Space Oddity," Bowie's first major single and the highlight of this album. ~ Rick Clark ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- David Bowie - v/g/com Paul Buckmaster - Cello John Cambridge - Drums Keith Christman - Guitar Terry Cox - Drums Herbie Flowers - Bass John Lodge - Bass Benny Marshall - Harmonica Tim Renwick - Guitar Mick Ronson - Guitar Tony Visconti - prd/b/fl/rec Rick Wakeman - Keyboards Mick Wayne - Guitar Mick Woodsmansey - Drums -------- Album Tracks -------- Space Oddity Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed Don't Sit Down Letter to Hermione Cygnet Committee Janein An Occasional Dream Wild Eyed Boy from Freecloud God Knows I'm Good Memory of a Free Festival Conversation Piece Memory of a Free Festival Part 1 Memory of a free Festival Part 2 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Space Oddity/Man of Words/Man Of Music Artist : David Bowie Rating : not rated yet Genre : Rock Time : 56:03 min Date : 1969 (release) AMG ID : R000171428 --------- Album Releases --------- 1969 CD Atlantic RCD10131 -------- Album Tracks -------- Space Oddity Unwashed And Somewhat Slightly Dazed Don't Sit Down Letter To Hermione Cygnet Committee Janine An Occasional Dream Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud God Knows I'm Good Memory Of A Free Festival Conversation Piece (1970 B-Side Of "Prettiest Star") Memory Of A Free Festival Part 1 Memory Of A Free Festival Part 2 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Special Radio Series - Vol. 1: Scary Monsters Interview Album Artist : David Bowie Rating : OK Genre : Rock Date : 1980 (release) AMG ID : R000002504 --------- Album Releases --------- RCA DJL1-3840 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Spider Tour Conversation Artist : David Bowie Rating : not rated yet Genre : Rock Time : 61:25 min AMG ID : R000171425 --------- Album Releases --------- CD Audio Visual International SPIDER101CD -------- Album Tracks -------- London Amsterdam Stockholm New York Sydney ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Stage Artist : David Bowie Rating : OK Charts : Billboard #044, entered Oct 21, 1978, on charts 013 weeks Genre : Rock Time : 77:17 min Date : 1978 (release) AMG ID : R000002498 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- 1992 CD Rykodisc RCD-10144/45 1992 CS Rykodisc RAC2-0144/45 1978 LP RCA 2913 CD Rykodisc 10144 1978 RCA 2913 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- Despite the fact that he had released a double-live set in late 1975, Bowie toured the states in 1977 with a killer band featuring guitarists Adrian Belew and Carlos Alomar and put out another double-live disc. Bowie played it straight, sticking closely to the studio versions (except on the extended arrangement of "Breaking Glass"), and the band was flawless. The set opens with five songs from THE RISE AND FALL OF ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE SPIDERS FROM MARS and focuses on material from STATION TO STATION, LOW, and HEROES, with a version of "Fame" thrown in as well. STAGE isn't as dated as ZIGGY STARDUST or as quirky as DAVID LIVE. A previously unissued version of "Alabama Song" is included to round out the collection. ~ Jim Whalen, Roundup Newsletter. A great double-disc live document of Bowie's HEROES tour, with Disc 1 focussing on ZIGGY STARDUST and STATION TO STATION material and Disc 2 featuring LOW and HEROES. ~ Rick Clark ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Carlos Alomar - com/g/vcb Adrian Belew - Guitar Adrian Belew - Vocal (background) David Bowie - com/k/prd Dennis Davis - Drums, Percussion Simon House - Violin John Lennon - Composer Sean Mayes - p/str/vcb George Murray - Guitar (bass), Vocal (background) Roger.

Consumer warning for fans: The sub-bootleg sonics here make THE BEATLES LIVE AT THE STAR CLUB sound like DARK SIDE OF THE MOON. ~ Steve Simels, Rock & Roll Disc . Regarded by many to be Bowie's best album, Bowie took the melodicism developed on HUNKY DORY and beefed it up with a punchy, rigid, freeze-dried "rock" setting. It's a perfect setting for Bowie's concept of a plastic rock star, Ziggy Stardust. THE RISE AND FALL OF ZIGGY STARDUST AND THE SPIDERS FROM MARS, without a doubt, was an important defining effort for the glam-rock movement. ~ Rick Clark ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- David Bowie - v/g/k/sax/prd/eng/com Mike Moran - Producer Tony Visconti - Producer -------- Album Tracks -------- Hang On To Yourself Ziggy Stardust Watch That Man Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud All The Young Dudes Oh You Pretty Things Moonage Daydream Space Oddity My Death Cracked Actor Time Width Of A Circle Changes Let's Spend The Night Together Suffragette City White Light White Heat Rock & Roll Suicide Five Years Soul Love Moonage Daydream Starman It Ain't Easy Lady Stardust Star Hang Onto Yourself Ziggy Stardust Suffragette City Rock 'n' Roll Suicide John, I'm Only Dancing (Previously Unreleased Mix) Velvet Goldmine (Single B-Side) Sweet Head (Previously Unreleased) Ziggy Stardust (Previously Unreleased Origional Demo) Lady Stardust (Previouslt Unreleased Origional Demo) <1994 1 23> Thank you for using All-Music Guide. .
