In response to yogafriend's comment:
BTW, if Zilla returns to this thread, or anyone else who has knowledge of David Bowie's album, "Low", I'd be very interested to know what you think of it.
I'm very curious.
[/QUOTE] Not one of my favorite Bowie albums, but good in it's own way. Bowie was experimenting around this time with lots of synthesized music, citing Kraftwerk as a major influence. Some really good Bowie songs come from this period ( Ashes to Ashes, Look Back In Anger, .D.J., Heroes, and the entire 'Station to Station' LP) however none of those is on 'Low.'
I always keep going back to the great Bowie albums, Diamond Dogs, The Man Who Sold The World, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars, Hunky Dory.
His later stuff is all very good, but never matched the complete brilliance of the earlier classics.
Another "ODDITY", both Nick Lowe and David Bowie recorded a song called "Breaking Glass." The Bowie song is on the 'Low' LP, The Nick Lowe song is from "Jesus Of Cool"( U.K.) aka "Pure Pop For Now People. ( USA)" [/QUOTE]
Thanks, Zilla. After several posts where you mentioned Bowie as one of your favorite artists, I assumed you'd know the album, "Low". It makes sense that he'd cite Kraftwerk as an influence. All the worlds collide (in a good way) with some of your favorite artists.
I'm sure I can find some songs off of "Low" to listen to online.
I am still amused, in looking it up, I connected to the answer to DD's relatively obscure question; I figure I owe it to myself to catch at least a few songs off the album. :)
