David Bowie Best Of Dallas '78 - Isolar II World Tour Best of Bowie, live from the Dallas Convention Center on 10th April 1978 Escaping his drug-fuelled life in Los Angeles at the end of 1976, David Bowie took up residence in Berlin, and between 1977 and 1979 he kicked his coke habit, rediscovered his love of painting, and in so doing, reinvigorated his musical career. During this period he released three albums known to Bowie aficionados as the Berlin Trilogy, comprising of the albums Low (1977), Heroes (1977), and Lodger (1979). David Bowie’s Isolar II World Tour in 1978 introduced the world to the first two of these albums – Low and Heroes - and took him to 14 countries. For the first time since starting out as Davy Jones in the sixties, Bowie was Bowie, not Ziggy, not Halloween Jack, nor the sinister and skeletal Thin White Duke. This was Bowie the suffering, introspective artist. This concert, recorded by NPR and broadcast live, features the best of Bowie’s Dallas Convention Center gig in Texas in the opening leg of the Isolar II World Tour. PROTUS LP Pre-Order
David Bowie Reality 180g coloured vinyl, packaged in a tri-fold sleeve. The stark reality of David Bowie's 2003 album Reality is that there really isn't any concept. The vivid, wildly impressive result is one of the most powerful sets of songs in Bowie's illustrious body of work. Coming from the creative pioneer who brought rock music a newfound narrative drama and depth with 1972's classic The Rise & Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, the premise for Reality - Bowie's 26th album - couldn't have been more straightforward. "I said to myself that I would just do a collection of songs that I was writing at the time," Bowie recalls. "A collection of songs with no through line, no undercurrent of any kind of narrative, no concept of tying it all together." The initial mission for Reality was that simple - write a batch of new songs, and may the best song win. "Each song was autonomous in my head," says Bowie. "Yet it did seem for some reason there was still a unity in there somehow. The album pulls together as a complete piece, even though the styles are quite diverse." Smart, sharp and intense, Reality offers a gritty soundscape that's everything we've come to expect from the musical icon. Just as Bowie's late-70s albums Low and Heroes - recorded in Berlin during a period of great personal transformation - conveyed the sonic texture of that place, so too does Reality capture the aggressive edge and street wisdom of Bowie's most recent home, New York City. Its acclaimed, moody predecessor, 2002's Heathen, was recorded in the relative peace of upstate New York while Reality was recorded in lower Manhattan and is laced with references to Battery Park, Riverside, the Hudson, and the pretty/ugly feel of cracked Big Apple pavement. Like Heathen, Reality finds Bowie once again working closely with producer Tony Visconti, a key collaborator going back to the days of The Man Who Sold The World, and albums like Low, Heroes, Lodger and Scary Monsters. Songs like the opening gem "New Killer Star" and "Looking For Water" appear to comment on world events in a poetic, potent way. Still there is also much wit and joy here. Add up the social commentary with more personal songs like the reflective "Days," and the result is a geo-political, rock & roll gas. Like his narrator in "New Killer Star," Bowie seems to be both asking us to face the music and declaring let's dance. Friday Music LP

David Bowie Heathen Legacy vinyl reissue on 180g black LP. Reissue of the 22nd studio album from the legendary English musician David Bowie. Heathen sounded like it understood how people felt. People automatically felt the need, then, to understand Heathen and, of all Bowie's albums of the nineties and beyond, it remains the one that is most frequently singled out as his best, because it is certainly his most direct. Even Tony Visconti referred to it as his magnum opus: "I told him, 'That was more like a symphony.'" - Dave Thompson Legacy LP
