iTunes Review

David Bowie’s 1967 debut album foreshadowed in many ways how he’d later dramatically shape pop culture. Musically, it’s wildly ambitious—from the horn-led theatrical pop of “Rubber Band” to the string-swirling, Syd Barrett-influenced “I Love You Till Tuesday” to the androgyny-themed popper “She’s Got Medals.” While there’s a novel jauntiness to “The Laughing Gnome,” other tracks are detailed observations of daily life, like “Join the Gang,” which mocks herd mentalities with a sitar and bouncing piano. This album showcases Bowie in all his youth, and that’s no slight.

The album he would rather disown

First of all, let's be realistic, this is not the 1st album you would necessarily put on if you are in the Bowie mood. However, if you have a wider area of interest in music, some of the material on these two discs amount to more than a collection of curios. Where the proper album falters is when the vocals rely too much on Bowie's love of Anthony Newley. But, Newley is one of the prime influences that leads to Bowies' own distinct voice (along with a healthy dose of Scott Walker). Any listener familiar with Scott Walker's 60's output may find charm with these tracks, but the arrangements lack the same sophistication of those recordings. Also, if you are a fan of McCartney and Lennons more music-hall oriented songs, you will find these songs of note. The proper album is a solid, quick listen, my preference is for the Stereo versions this time out as it sounds like these songs were recorded that way and mixed for Mono afterwards. The second disc has later cuts with the earliest appearance of collaborations with Tony Visconti, and these tend to be the strongest tracks on the disc overall. You won't find the immediacy of Bowie's hit songs, but you will find a charm and strangeness that had yet to come to full bloom. Bowie rightfully returned to some of this material for re-recording (sadly, most of those remain unreleased), and maybe one day he will finish the undertaking of that project.

First Gen. of Bowie Music

This album represents his first style of music - Folk Music.
Never heard any of these before. Definitely not the style of Bowie we know and love.
This shows me how much the Spiders from Mars (Mick Ronson et al) helped David Bowie change from folk to rock.

A bit elementary... But acceptable

It's good for kids but it is worth a listen

Everyone has a David Bowie that they fell in love with first—the otherworldly outsider Ziggy Stardust, the electronic adventurer, the wild-eyed glam pioneer, the enigmatic storyteller. But it was Bowie's ability to reinvent himself so vividly that captivated us again and again. Driven by boundless imagination, David Bowie was a multifaceted music icon, a social provocateur, a force in fashion, and a gifted actor whose unique personas and perspectives traveled with him through the decades.
