Bowie in Bertolt Brecht's Baal...from a TV play or something. I have it...not among his greatest work, but interesting.

Now if it was Bowie narrating Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf...that would be another matter!

I see Kieth A has provided a clip.

Will check out.

I survived (endured?) about a minute of that!

Nice little looking artefact though.

Still, I got a great coat today for a wee bit more, so happy enough.

Actually picked up a Bowie related thing from said charity shop other day.

A tape (yes, we've still got a great component here) of 'Merry Xmas' soundtrack.

Mainly as I quite like Sakamoto, though it's hardly 'his' best either.

Also picked up a tape of Metal Machine Music.

Just because.

Tape a bit slack though, needing the old rewind/ff thing a few times.

Not that it'll get played or nowt.

The Man Who Sold the World
Heroes
All the Madmen
Ashes to Ashes
Space Oddity
An Occasional Dream
Art Decade
Oh You Pretty Things
Sell Me A Coat
Rebel Rebel
Can't Help Thinking About Me
Life on Mars
Let Me Sleep Beside You
Soul Love
Quicksand

Singingringingtree with be envious of that I reckon, especially a version which will be quite wobbly!

Bless the old dears that run these places, but they do get it a bit wrong at times.

They're charging a fortune for things lile T'Pau or Five Star, on vinyl, coz (and I did hear this said once) 'those young ones are getting into records again'.


We got those two tapes for 75p, so now they've actually had a sale I'm expecting the prices to rocket.


Better get in there fast.

It's a good album for getting rid of party guests who've overstayed their welcome, though. Eminintly sampleable too (although I only know of one instance in which it has been sampled, that being the Third Eye Foundation's "What to Do But Cry".)

I'm trying to find when the particular edition is from.

Looks a bit 80s going by the paper.

I'll leave the anoraky 'issue checkup' stuff to someone else.

Also sampled by Sonic Youth in 1984/5 on "Bad Moon Rising"
