Released in 1973 - Pin-Ups would be David Bowie's 7th studio album. Back in its day - This album made its way into the record stores sandwiched in between Alladdin Sane and Diamond Dogs.
This compilation of 12 tracks are covers of songs originally written and previously performed by other recording artists such as - "Shape Of Things" (by the Yardbirds), "See Emily Play" (by Pink Floyd), and "Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere" (by the Who).
To me - This is not one of Bowie's best musical offerings - But it is still worth a listen just to hear Bowie doing other artists' songs his way.
A groundbreaking classic!
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (often shortened to Ziggy Stardust) is the fifth studio album by English musician David Bowie. It is a concept album telling the story of a fictional rock star named Ziggy Stardust. It peaked at No. 5 in the United Kingdom on the UK Albums Chart and No. 75 in the United States on the Billboard 200, then improved to a No. 21 position in the wake of Bowie's death.
The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars has been consistently considered one of the greatest albums of all time, with Rolling Stone magazine ranking it the 35th greatest ever. It was ranked the 20th greatest album ever in a 1997 British survey, the 24th greatest of all time by Q magazine and one of the 100 greatest releases ever by Time magazine. A concert film of the same name, directed by D. A. Pennebaker, was recorded in 1973 and released a decade later in 1983.
Give me one year of Bowie and I would be eternally grateful. This is Five Years!
