SPACE ODDITY!!!

This is my topic, so you have to do as I say. Get Space Oddity. It's very leftish politically too.

The Children of the summer's end
Gathered in the dampened grass
We played Our songs and felt the London sky
Resting on our hands
It was God's land
It was ragged and naive
It was Heaven

I keep having this brainstorm
About twelve times a day
So now, you could spend the morning walking with me, quite amazed
As I'm Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed

I do love Space Oddity as well.

Leftish politically...I like.

I need more convincing


Though realistically it'll come down to what the music stores have in stock around here

Space Oddity is still my favorite album. I've bought 5 over the past few months and that's the one I keep going back to.

Only my opinion, but if you've got those, I'd go for STATIONTOSTATION, Or LOW, next, followed by, Scary Monsters, Heroes, Diamond Dogs, TMWSTW, Aladdin Sane, Heathen, Hours, 1.Outside, Tin Machine1, Lodger, Black Tie White Noise, Young Americans, Reality, & if you can get hold of a copy of Images, a collection of Bowie's '60's songs before he became famous, there are some real gems on that LP, Sell Me A Coat, London Boys, Little Bombardier, Uncle Arthur, There Is A Happy Land, its an absolute GEM.
LP's to avoid, IMO, Never Let Me Down, Tonight, & Lets Dance, compared to his '70's material real shockers!

Well there are so many different suggestions here I'll make my decision based on whatever Best Buy has....though last time I looked there they had a bunch of weird Japanese imports

Couple of bargains there 1Step, let us know what you think of them.
I doubt if the Low CD will include the track, "Some Are" it was included on the early '90's re-issue of Low, which has since been deleted, if you have access to a download site try and get a copy, it really should have been included on the original LP.

I just introduced my roomie to Labyrinth.

She loved it (though she wasn't too keen on Bowie's tights...unlike myself )

not enough love here for "A Lad Insane."

"Watch That Man"
"Drive In Saturday"
"Jean Genie"
"Prettiest Star" (that guitar lick was written by Marc Bolan)
"Panic In Detroit"
"Cracked Actor"

It's all rock with vintage Bowie boogie.

There's a 2 disc version out there for this album. Get it. Not only is everything remastered, it has Bowie's studio version of "All The Young Dudes."

I'll follow up on that.

The "30th Anniversary" edition of "Ziggy" and "Alladin" are the best reissued records ever. Not only is the remaster great, but the extra discs are worth the extra money. Great live versions, demos, single cuts, and quality rarities.

They cost $25. And they're worth every penny.
