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

Format: Audio CD
By 1973 the sixties lay a mouldering, long forgotten. This was David's attempt to resurrect them and here he gives these killers a kiss of life. Whilst the 60's are always remembered for the Beatles, Dead and later Floyd, David showed where the real scene lay, buried under the debris. In the frenetic high octane, hormonally charged rush to headbutt the past and live for the moment RNB. One cute template for punk along with the Dolls who also incidentally resurrected another set of 60's rockers to blow the lungs back into shape.

These tunes marked an English renaissance. It was only a few years before these blasts of hormones caught on vinyl, Tommy Steele and a host of lackadaisical crooners ruled young people's lives in a post war sepia. Then there was the early 60's with Them, Pretty Things, early Floyd, Who, Zombies, Animals, Stones and Dave Clark 5 who took the beat back to the US.

For the first time ever, a successful British invasion occurred after two hundred years of trying. All we did was repackage their black acts, speed up the sound and coat an English amphetamined sensibility into the groove. This weaved a new form of imagination, as it highlighted the working classes had thoughts; a new revelation which turned into a cultural revolution - bigger than China.

These sounds showcased the white working classes of the UK, the ones that bore the body count in two world wars had something going between the ears, heart, groin and then upward, onward- all connecting the spirits of zest, zing and zap. The first cultural revolution that over turned the Bloomsbury tables. So we have the mournful "Sorrow," the acid drone of "See Emily Play," and the frantic rocking of "Rosalyn.

Format: Audio CD
Bowie's tribute to the sixties contains familiar and obscure covers from The Kinks, The Merseys, Yardbirds and Pink Floyd among others. The band is tight and the selection is interesting, but the sound is rather samey throughout. More variety or flavor in instrumentation and arrangement would have lifted this album above the ordinary. Using different producers would have been a good idea. The overall style is not dissimilar from his cover of the Stones' Let's Spend The Night Together on the Aladdin Sane album. Having said that, I still find Pin Ups enjoyable to listen to and definitely more rewarding than some of his later exploits. My favorite tracks include Here Comes The Night, Friday On My Mind and of course the beautiful Sorrow with its lilting rhythm which was a well-deserved great hit. This new CD edition includes some extra tracks.

This is the album bought by many back in the autumn of 1973 (myself included), in the wake of "Ziggy Stardust"; "Aladdin Sane" and "Hunky Dory" (bought in the summer of 1973 as a result of "Life On Mars"). We all said how great it was when really we were left somewhat underwhelmed by this 30 minute rush of obscure (to us) 60s covers that we had never heard of! Bowie got this recorded and released as quickly as possible to give a last pay-off to Spiders From Mars Mick Ronson and Trevor Bolder (Mick Woodmansey had already left). Doesn't sound promising.

However, listened to again all these ears later, it is a pleasant romp. For me, this is the "go to" remaster, as opposed to the RYKO editions (not for all, but certainly for this one). The sound is clear, great 70s stereo separation, great guitar and drum sound and a clarity of voice from Bowie. Well played and well-recorded. Well worth another listen. Highlights are "Don't Bring Me Down", Pink Floyd's "See Emily Play", the hit single "Sorrow" and the barnstorming "I Wish You Would". "Rosalyn" is a great album opener too.

An old schooldays favourite and despite being covers and not Bowie's own material, I still like it a lot.
I have given up waiting for a deluxe edition with outtakes or additional tracks!

Much is made nowadays of the paucity of good new pop songs. It is fashionable to knock the boy (and girl and unisex) band karioke versions of old hits. But hey!, there's no intrinsic shame in doing cover versions. The Beatles did it, so did the Stones, the Byrds, Hendrix, Clapton, Robson and Jerome. The secret is to mould the material with your own personality. Let David Bowie show you how.
This is a collection of the songs David Bowie heard being done by the early Sixties beat groups in the clubs and dives aound London. The kind of places where the ambience and atmosphere was so intense that it condensed on the ceiling and dripped down upon your head. The Man obviously has a great love and regard for this material, it just gushes out of every groove. The hit single from this album was Sorrow, the sole hit for The Merseys in 1966, and it is, in truth, the weakest song of the set.
This was David Bowie on top form, following on from Aladdin Sane. He carefully selected some milestone songs from ten years earlier, and gave them some welly. Much to the fore was his own driving saxophony. These were Who tracks, Pretty Things tracks, Mojo tracks, but now they are very much David Bowie tracks.
Back in 1973, this was a remarkable crossroads album. It was brash and contemporary at the same time as being a bit nostalgic and retrospective. It still has that same thrill, and still sounds contemporary.
At the time, there was a race between Bryan Ferry and David Bowie to get their album of covers out first. Ferry hit the streets in the lead but it is David Bowie who is out in front artistically.
For some reason this is not regarded as a "fashionable" record, but that is injustice. It is David Bowie's most accessible work, and it is also among his most accomplished.
