This Day In Bowie History

on February 10, 2000

Blue, blue electric blue...

It's hard to imagine just how very different 'Sound and Vision' sounded when compared to everything else on its release 23 years ago on the 11th of February 1977. The first single from the incredible 'Low', released the previous month on the 14th, 'Sound and Vision' was the obvious first choice from an album many considered far too inaccessible. Despite clocking in at just over three minutes the single was a hit even though the vocal didn't come in until half way through the track!

The B-side was just as astonishing.
