The good news is, it's a must have because it is one of the early/first large picture(some bio. info) books that does justice to the legend that is Bowie
In fact, the spine cracked and the pages fell out as soon as I opened it. It must have been a re-glued book. There is dried glue every and loose pages. Very unfortunate.
HOWEVER, as a book which focuses on Bowie's career during his great period (the decade of the 70s up to Scary Monsters), it is a fascinating and thorough examination of his recorded work, Written in a style that is long gone in rock journalism...one in which the writers offer valid criticism through wit and a rich vocabulary.
As a poor teenager with limited pocket-money, I struggled with what book of Bowie's to get first, let alone the dilemma of purchasing my first bowie album on tape. I came across this book and I can honestly say that it's the best 'Bowie' purchase I've ever made (well, apart from the concert tickets !).
So as a 14 year old girl in 1985, while all my school mates where into Wham or the new romantic type stuff, here I was pouring over Ziggy Stardust and the Thin White Duke. I was NOT popular at school. I even sported his red ziggy mullet, at age 14, when I was supposed to be growing into a precocious young girl, I was listening to this weird music and driving my mother insane relating lyrics to her while she washed dishes.
I digress. after reading this large square book cover to cover, pouring over every detailed word that Murray and Carr bestowed on just about every song on every album up until 1981 (I had the original book which ended at 1981), they all sounded so fantastic and strange and intriguing, I had real trouble deciding which album to buy first. I had settled on two choices.... Low or Diamond Dogs.
THANKFULLY I decided my 5 pounds be spent on a tape of the Diamond Dogs album.... looking back I was just NOT ready for the mysterious and haunting sounds of Low. I think if I had listened to Low first, it would have put me off for life. Of course now I respect Low for what it is, but Diamond Dogs will ALWAYS be my favorite album of Bowies'. At 38, it still is, I'm still infatuated,, and IMHO nothing he's done since Scary Monsters carries any of the fantastical, explorative and unique work he did throughout the 1970's.
In conclusion.... should anyone be only just discovering Bowie.... this is the ultimate tome for deep album exploration..... a nice list of bootleg albums at the back too, and GREAT pictures.
I need to buy a 'new' old copy.
