Biography

Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
The cliché about David Bowie says he's a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. While such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that Bowie demonstrated remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends at his peak in the '70s. After spending several years in the late '60s as a mod and as an ... Read more in Amazon's David Bowie Store

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Comprehensiveness isn't always a virtue, as this two-CD set, Bowie At The Beeb, proves. It gathers together everything David Bowie recorded for the BBC between the years referenced in its title. Head first to Disc Two, which focuses on Bowie's in-studio recreations of material from Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust, and marvel at the glam-rockabilly heat generated by Bowie's band, the Spiders From Mars. By comparison, the other disc is a disappointment, revealing a musical chameleon uncomfortably changing his spots, from music-hall entertainer to free-festival folkie to sub-Dylan sage. --Keith Moerer

4.0 out of 5 stars A chameleon changes its spots (sic) 18 Feb 2004
Format:Audio CD
Sure disc two is good, but disc one should not be overlooked. It also has material from Hunky Dory, as well as songs from the Space Oddity album. They reflect the pre-ziggy stuff and have a more quirky, naive 'English' sound. (They're good for bashing out on an acoustic guitar after a hard day down the salt mines.) I also like the John Peel mumblings and the slightly cringing Tony Blackburn interview. It all makes for a more amateur, bootleg feel to the disc, even though the sound quality is good. In this respect it's interesting to compare it with the 27-06-00 Bowie BBC concert hosted by Jonathon Woss, which also has a cosy unpretentious feel to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Vaults Creak Open 16 May 2010
Format:Audio CD
Bowie fans constantly moan about the fact that Bowie keeps a tight lid on his rich archive past, compared to his peers like the Rolling Stones or Queen. Perhaps he thinks officially releasing all your rough drafts and underdeveloped ideas diminishes the mystique of the artist or is itself an admission that your career is over. However, this collection gave them a big chunk of exactly what they wanted: a collection of live radio broadcasts on the BBC from his crucial embryonic period from hippy minstrel in 1968 to his final breakthrough as Ziggy Stardust in 1972. Despite this there were many fans who still moaned that this collection omits some known recordings and is in many cases simply an official release of what was already available on bootlegs for years.

I, however, welcome it. It is an official, good quality release which adds a completely new dimension to your understanding of Bowie's early years. To less completist fans it might also provide access to some difficult to obtain Bowie material that they might not have heard before like "London Bye Ta Ta", "Bombers", "Looking for a Friend", "Almost Grown", "Amsterdam" and "White Light/White Heat". The oldest recordings boast an early draft of "In the Heat of the Morning" and a rocking version of "Janine". For me the highlight of the set though is a very touching performance of the Hunkydory track "Kooks" when it was literally only days old. In contrast to the album version which is perhaps overly comedic and sugary, this live rendition is full of uncertainty, hope and concern for his newborn son. I find the first disc fascinating as it tracks Bowie's progress from mere apprentice of the musical arts to a polished graduate, capable of commanding an audience's attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars I never realised... 23 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I primarily bought this for the Spiders from Mars era stuff but was blown away by some of some of the early stuff like 'In the Heat of the Morning', 'Silly Boy Blue' and 'The Cygnet Committee'. Really good quality recordings xx

4.0 out of 5 stars what a shame 27 May 2012
Format:Audio CD
I first heard a number of these recordings when Whispering Bob Harris took a retrospective look at Bowie's BBC work back in the early 90s. What's missing here are a few BBC session tracks including 'Love You Till Tuesday' which is excellent. I do think the quality of this CD is the inclusion of Bowie's cover versions of the Velvet Underground songs: 'Waiting For The Man' (featuring Mick Ronson and Tony Visconti) and 'White Light White Heat' which are both superb and never recorded in the studio by Bowie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Bowie 27 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I would recommend this to anyone even vaguely interested in Bowie. The track “Bombers” is worth the purchase price alone; this unreleased track is wonderfully quirky. Many of these tracks are slightly looser than the recorded tracks on the official releases, this doesn`t distract but enhances the music. Bowie is arguably the greatest of the 1970`s pop stars, his lyrics and his ideas are complex, controversial, his voice is distinctive, high out of the ordinary, the band and particularly Mick Ronson match him musically….
