It wasn't until the release of 1983's Let's Dance that David Bowie achieved the type of enormous, global success he had so sorely deserved for so very long. But for most of his fans he had, by that juncture, already produced the best music he was ever going to make. And while there were still musical delights to come during the years that followed, as Bowie toured the world playing to more people on one tour than he had in his entire career to that point, his legacy was assured by records he d released during the previous decade and each concert he now performed would be filled with songs from that golden era. This 2 DVD set is a documentary review concentrating on David Bowie in the 1970's the decade in which he not only made his name but in which he also dominated the music scene like no other musical icon before or since. Running at over two and a half hours the programme looks at his pre-fame era, his early, low-selling albums, his glam period when the world sat up and took notice, and his constant rejuvenation throughout the years when every few weeks it seemed this bizarre creature would adopt a brand new persona. Features; rare and classic performance footage, exclusive interviews, exhaustive archive, fascinating contributions from his closest friends, associates, band members, producers and other colleagues, as well as review and critique from the finest Bowie writers, archivists and journalists, including one of the final interviews the late, legendary DJ John Peel ever gave. The set also includes multiple EXTRAS, deluxe packaging featuring rare photographs and a host of other features.
Uno dei migliori documentari mai realizzati sulla produzione anni '70 del Duca Bianco, indubbiamente il suo periodo pił creativo, dal glam di Ziggy Stardust, alla fascinazione soul di Young Americans fino alla trilogia berlinese. Il contenuto comprende clips, footage live, rari documenti d'archivio, interviste con componenti delle sue bands, con l'ex-moglie Angie, colleghi e giornalisti (tra cui spicca un bel commento del grande John Peel).
