WCIBN? Album Focus: Diamond Dogs - Day 5

on August 21, 2016


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

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

“You like me, and I like it all”


As you know by now, In the run up to the release of the David Bowie - Who Can I Be Now? (1974 – 1976) box set, we’re running a weekly album focus, with this week’s album being Diamond Dogs.
