WCIBN? Album Focus: David Live

on August 22, 2016

 

“And he was alright, the band was all together...”

 

In celebration of the upcoming David Bowie - Who Can I Be Now? (1974 – 1976) box set, we’re continuing our album focus on the next title in the box: David Live.

 

As previously mentioned, David Live is the document of The Year Of The Diamond Dogs Tour of Canada and North America in 1974.

 

It was the first official live Bowie album and it was preceded by the single Knock On Wood, which was taken from it.

 

Check it out now on Spotify.

WCIBN? Album Focus: Diamond Dogs - Day 5

on August 21, 2016

 

“It's safe in the city, to love in a doorway”

 

Ahead of the release of the David Bowie - Who Can I Be Now? (1974 – 1976) box set, we’re running a weekly album focus. Today is the last day of Diamond Dogs before we look at David Live tomorrow, the record of the tour that took Diamond Dogs on the road.

 

Despite the Diamond Dogs cover still depicting Bowie with the Ziggy look he was about to shed, one of the things that was striking about the album at the time was its incredibly fresh and new sound, unlike anything else around in 1974.

 

This intention is borne out by Tony Visconti’s Diamond

11-page Bowie feature in October UNCUT

on August 19, 2016

 

“Good god! was it really yesterday?”

 

The October 2016 issue of Uncut magazine has an 11-page cover feature that shines a light on the evolution of The Gouster/Young Americans, via the more-than-qualified memory banks of Tony Visconti and others, along with some rather tasty pictorial content.

 

There’s also a brief attempt to second guess what’s next in the world of forthcoming Bowie releases.
