Normally I steer well clear of albums containing recordings (covers) of other artists already released material but made an exception here mainly due to the fact that Bowie was on a roll and for a while I was addicted. Generally I viewed this practice as a sign that an artist was simply running out of steam (see my final comment below) or merely cashing in (perhaps he was)? That said it is only now, some 40 years down the line, that you realise how good Bowie was given the utter dross we have to contend with in 2015. In style to me it follows the style shown on Aladdin Sane very nicely indeed where a taster for this album was included - the Stones 'Let's Spend The Night Together'. Personal favourite has always been 'Friday On My Mind' and Bowie's version has only ever been bettered by London (punk rock band c1977). 'Rosalyn' is pretty good as well. The only track I've never really warmed to is 'Here Comes The Night'. However, even in the days of vinyl I was disappointed at the short running time - approx 35mins. Surely a few more could have been added? Still worth the 5 stars though. Finally a bit of controversy - as for me I tended to lose interest in Bowie when 'Diamond Dogs' was released and nothing has changed since.

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.

One of Bowies albums that no matter how many times you listen to it you never get fed up with it, and he does a great job on all these covers, just listening to it through my bi-wired speakers, and hearing things on the album i have not heard before, and i have listened to this album on and off over 20 years....Great music from one of the all time legends

Bit patchy early album from the late great man. Probably shows his trying to find a discernible style before Ziggy came along. Some good tracks which would make this an occasional listen. Still an essential buy though.

I don't know why they digitally remaster these old records. This one sounds tinny and scratchy and cheap. I used to have the original and I wish I still had. The sound on the old vinyl LP was far superior to these CDs, with much more depth. That's just my opinion, but I do love the songs sung the way only Bowie can, quite unique. Also love the sleeve with our dear Twiggy and a starey Bowie.

For those of you who remember when Melody Maker was the only music paper worth reading, this album will take you back to the heady days of Eel Pie Island, The Fishmongers Arms and The Ricki Tick. With a cracking band, Bowie storms through a set of covers from Pink Floyd, Them, The Pretty Things, The Merseybeats , The Who and the Kinks to name but a few.
Excellent production and energetic arrangements give familiar songs a new feel. Good to hear a bit of Bowie's sax, and there's chance for Ronno to show off a bit too.
Was this Ziggy's covers set? Could be, and a bargain at the price.
Well worth a punt for Bowie fans and sixties pop lovers.
