David Bowie Never Let Me Down Rar


well let's just say that his overall discography is immaculate, but this record in its current state is a dud. 2004-2016 kanye was equivalent to bowie in the 70s. but of course, bowie ended up making 'tonight,' 'never let me down,' and both tin machine records, which are rightfully considered duds by just about everyone. i wouldn't say kanye's in his "flop era," but he's a bit past his prime (even if he puts out some good material still). i highly recommend you listen to 'my beautiful dark twisted fantasy.' despite being mastered at an unlistenably loud volume, it's one of the most important albums of any genre of all time, really, and is critically praised/hyped for a reason.

"The whole gig for me, to be honest, was a wonderful event. I was thirteen. I had seen him in May that year at Earls Court - which for my first gig ever was a complete disappointment to me - for a kid of my age. The anticipation of seeing your 'idol' I would suspect is paramount? (whether realistic or not), but I saw little of him that night (moan over) - still it obviously never put me off. If my memory serves me well - I think the July 3rd gig was an extra date…..? So serendipity played its part there. I recall being extremely excited - our seats (again luck will always play its part) were front row circle...for me at least - the perfect place to see the stage. You will not see me on the video or film, but if you were David Bowie or the musicians working that night - they might have seen a spotlight on the right hand side of the circle level beaming the light that spotlights do, down to the stage. (Yours truly was a couple of seats along….!). It was a big one (the spotlight I mean - LOL) and was pivoted and beautifully operated by, what can you call them, 'lighting people?' I wonder whatever happened to that man? - the 'beam of light' as I wish to respectfully call him. As I recall that night - Mike Garson came out prior to the gig and played solo - beautiful piano pieces of Bowie songs - I can't remember them all - I do remember he played 'Life on Mars' though - (I think!!). Then, as is well documented, a 'teddy boy' arrived on stage to announce - Bowie - 'for the last time etc…..', Beethoven's ninth, blah de blah, and then Bowie & the Spiders. Opened with 'Hang on to yourself' - well the rest is history. But my feelings that night were for me 'I think my life will never be the same'. What a 'rock star' and what a ride it has been since!! In my opinion Bowie energised on that tour - 'Let me be noticed' - 'I will smile with you all'. His 'alienation' was all very comforting and mesmerising and made us feel 'safe' but aware of a performer being a creator, a book on stage. Final chapter ending tonight so to speak……. of tome one…..This piece of work that he, in my opinion, executed so wonderfully, was ambition with a 'heart ' or is that corny? ....At the time, the farewell speech made no impact upon me - the significance of it just passed me by - he could have been saying 'I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts' as far as I'm concerned or saying the word 'the' - I was so overcome by the gig!!! I loved 'Width of a Circle' - the mime - I had never seen anything quite as amazing at the time." - Bill B (2001)


To pick a few selected works from an artist's career is to construct an argument about that artist. Every curator knows that, and David Bowie is nothing if not a curator. The first great Bowie best-of was 1976's Changesonebowie LP, whose argument was that he was a mamapapa comin' for you, a rocker too strong and too glittery to be pinned down. (The 1981 Changestwobowie LP and the 1990 Changesbowie CD, stabbed in its gut by the dreadful remix "Fame '90", tried to extend that premise.) Bowie's initial attempt at a full-career assessment was the 1989 Sound + Vision box set, revised and updated in 2003. In both forms, it's a bunch of hits and album tracks and rarities clumped together, an impressive show of range whose failure is that it assumes, rather than argues, that he's a rock god and that therefore anything he does is interesting.


For at least the rest of its first disc, the 3xCD version reframes latter-day Bowie as an alternate-universe version of Walker, a solemn avant-gardist who keeps trying to rocket out beyond pop and keeps being drawn back into its gravity well. That makes his later work a lot more interesting, it turns out. This is a Bowie who never runs out of fresh ways to gaze back at himself in the mirror. There are three tracks here from his never-released 2001 album Toy: reworked versions of a pair of songs from his youth, and the lovely obscurity "Your Turn to Drive", which is as close as he's ever come to dreampop. And it's hard to miss the science fiction that's never totally left his lyrics when James Murphy's remix of "Love Is Lost" (with its quotation from "Ashes to Ashes") appears next to "The Stars (Are Out Tonight)" and "New Killer Star", and just down the hall from Pet Shop Boys' reworking of "Hallo Spaceboy" (which itself incorporates a William S. Burroughs-style cut-up of lines from "Space Oddity").


Thank you very much for these CDs. I had found them on a Russian site but I think you have to download each track separately; that was never going to happen. So thank you once again, much appreciated.Miguel.


LOS ANGELES - 80s SYMPHONIC combines the original classic tracks of 15 iconic 80s tracks from David Bowie, a-ha, Foreigner, Simple Minds, Simply Red, Tina Turner, Pretenders, Ultravox and more with brand new symphonic and string arrangements performed by the 50-piece London Studio Orchestra creating brand unique versions of these timeless tracks like you've never heard before.The songs on 80s Symphonic have collectively sold over 20 million copies and have been number one hits in over 20 countries. The brand-new orchestrations for the album are the work of producer and arranger Andy Wright, who has worked with Simple Minds, Eurythmics, Simply Red, Jeff Beck, Massive Attack to name a few.Andy Wright says, "Opening up the tape boxes of the biggest Warner's hits from the 80's was like all my Christmases rolled into one. Having then the opportunity of augmenting the original performances with a 50-piece Symphonic Orchestra has been a dream job. My first call was to my long-time collaborator Sam Swallow, Sam and I have tried to respectfully represent the musicality of the instrumental members of these great bands with Sam judiciously adding additional touches. It could be argued that these records cannot be improved, but...!"Taking the original elements of the multi-tracks and, on 14 of the tracks, the original vocals the songs were arranged by Sam Swallow for a 48-piece orchestra and recorded over three days by the London Studio Orchestra in the legendary 'Beatles Studio' Studio 2 at the world famous Abbey Road Studios. The new version of David Bowie's 1983 classic "Let's Dance" was orchestrated and arranged for strings by the track's original producer Nile Rodgers at Abbey Road Studio 1 where he is the Chief Creative Advisor.Nile Rodgers, who arranged and produced David Bowie's "Let's Dance" also notes "My work with David Bowie and specifically 'Let's Dance' is sacrosanct to me so when I was asked by David's family and Warner's to add orchestration to the original recording I approached it with extreme trepidation. In fact my only concern was to protect David's artistic vision and integrity. In the end I'm very grateful that we did this, as I believe anyone who loves the original will be excited by it. I'm certain David would approve from above."The first single to be taken from 80s Symphonic is one of the most iconic hits of the Eighties "Take On Me" by a-ha. First released in 1984, the song was a worldwide smash in 1985 reaching #1 in over a dozen countries and as of 2017 has sold 7 million copies worldwide. On hearing the new version a-ha's Magne Furuholmen commented, "After the stripped down version of MTV unplugged, comes the full throttle orchestra-version...buckle up!" 80s SYMPHONICTrack Listing:1.
