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.

Customer Reviews

Charming and Fresh

Bowie is quite irresistible here. Cute little endearing songs that make you fall in love with him. Unique to anything else in Bowie's work. If only we could see him team up with Lindsay Kemp and perform these numbers again. If you like this check out Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris and anything by Anthony Newley.

Not for new fans

The date at the top may say "released Mar 23, 1998," but these songs date back to the 60s. These are all cheaply recorded, quirky songs by a man who was not yet David Bowie. This is not something you should download if you are a new fan of Bowie- it can really only be enjoyed by old fans who can appreciate Bowie's history and where his music came from. From that perspective, listening to this album feels like a history lesson on the beginnings of Bowie's career, and is very interesting. Otherwise, steer clear- there are no standout tracks on this one.

He won an award for When I Live My Dream! She's Got Medals is familiar. Join The Gang mentions the bands of that era that Bowie 'had' to keep up with. He should have done Please Mr. Gravedigger in a video.

The cliché about David Bowie goes that he was a musical chameleon, adapting himself according to fashion and trends. While such a criticism is too glib, there's no denying that Bowie demonstrated a remarkable skill for perceiving musical trends at his peak in the '70s. After spending several years in the late '60s as a mod and as an all-around music hall entertainer, Bowie reinvented himself as a hippie singer/songwriter. Prior to his breakthrough in 1972, he recorded a proto-metal record and a pop/rock...
