David Bowie - Absolutely Rare [ESSENTIAL LISTENING! Bootleg]
The Chameleon of Music.
His career is a very interesting and varied story. He has changed genre and musical style so often that, instead of his fans being left in the past as he's moved on, he seems to have always been capable of reading the latest trends and usually his changes result in him picking up new fans and becoming a part of the latest music. This is evidenced by the fact that in recent years, in his 50's, he has managed to sell new albums worldwide to a new audience as well as his massive fanbase. The Albums seem to have just got better and better. He embraces every new thing that comes along and then produces his own interpretation of it, usually resulting in a superb album. Bowie is one of the few artists that can be so much better live. The first album is a widely available 'official bootleg 'Absolutely Rare'. This contains some cracking stuff. Namely, the best version I've heard of the track 'Time' from Aladdin Sane. One thing that strikes you when you hear this collection of live performances is that the sound quality is just crystal clear. The vocals in this live performance make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. I can't recommend it enough.
There are lots of very well performed live tracks on this collection and every Bowie fan should own it.
Even the non-Bowie fans. (which by definition wouldn't be 'fans' at all would they?' unless of course they were fans of someone else but they would not be known as 'non-bowie fans'. Not really).
Just fucking download it.
If you don't I'm going to come round and kick you in the shins.
Got to go now, my mates started talking about 'jugs'.
(Of course I don't subscribe to such derogatory terms for tits).
