"When all your faith is failing, Call my name"

 

Thirty years ago today, David Bowie released his seventeenth studio album, Never Let Me Down.

 

The album hasn't weathered well over the years...it's had a track surgically removed from it, never to be spoken of again, and even its creator didn’t have the nicest things to say about it.

 

Despite all this, it did reach #6 in the UK album chart back in 1987 and was certified gold three  months later.

 

Three singles were released from the album: Day-In Day-Out, Time Will Crawl and Never Let Me Down, all of which reached the UK Top 40 and the accompanying Glass Spider Tour was also a huge commercial success.

 

If you've not heard it in a while, give it another spin...it's better than you probably remember it.

 

That's a clutch of European press adverts for the release illustrating this item.
