Bowies' sometime producer, co-producer and long time friend, Tony Visconti is releasing his enigmatic 'Inventory ' C.D. at long last. Says Tony: "Inventory is a 13 track album recorded around the time of Bowie's Heroes, in 1977. I used many production techniques from that period so you will detect a sonic similarity. Just before I mastered it Bowie and Iggy Pop listened to it and gave me sage advice about which tracks should stay on and which shouldn't. The total running time of this CD is over 70 minutes!"
Two delightful surprises are songs that Mick Ronson played guitar on and were never before heard by the general public (I only realized that fact after I included them in this compilation). They are "Skinny Rose", a goofy song of mine and "Clorissa", a heavy rock tune played by Mick and members of Hype, who backed David Bowie in 1971 and eventually became the Spiders from Mars (after I left)." The album will only be available on Tonys' site at http://www.tonyvisconti.com/inventory.html
