He concluded that he could not do the project without Ronson, [3] who was enthusiastic when Bowie contacted him for the first time in nine months.

Bowie and the future Spiders officially started work on the new album at Trident Studios in London on 8 June 1971. Similarly, Michael Gallucci of Ultimate Classic Rock contended that Hunky Dory is "where Bowie starts to become Bowie", featuring lyrical and stylistic themes he would replicate on future releases. The critical success of the album prompted Mercury to send Bowie on a promotional radio tour of the US in February 1971. To bottom left is the UK copyright and licensing blurb, which brings me to my only real gripe about this item. At the time of the album's release, Bowie described the song as the city that is "a kind of high-life wart on the backside of the prairie".It seems hard to believe, given the career full of revolutionary and hugely influential stylistic shifts that followed, that this superb record was only David Bowie's fourth. The instrumental track features multiple layers of acoustic guitars atop one another, [19] which was done at Scott's insistence. Others, including Bryan Wawzenek of Ultimate Classic Rock, have commended the wide array of genres present in the songs and their ability to blend together throughout. Muito bem produzido, conta com excelentes músicos como Mick Ronson e Rick Wakeman (que entraria logo em seguida para o Yes.

In The Village Voice, Robert Christgau hailed Bowie as "a singer-composer with brains, imagination, and a good idea of how to use a recording console", and the album "a quick change tour de force that is both catchy and deeply felt". This song is good i think, the piano work, the lyrics, the chorus, its just brilliant, worth a listen too. In November 2022, a multi-disc box set focusing on Hunky Dory was released with the title Divine Symmetry: The Journey to Hunky Dory. In 1998, Q magazine readers voted it the 43rd greatest album of all time; [105] in 2000 the same magazine placed it at number 16 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever.Although now widely acknowledged as one of the best albums of all time, Hunky Dory didn’t make a dent on the U. In 2016, Billboard 's Joe Lynch argued that Hunky Dory provided the "blueprint" for lo-fi indie pop records for the next 25 years, citing Ariel Pink as an artist influenced by the album.

It was described by Bowie at the time as "how some see BD", and its title is a parody of Dylan's 1962 tribute to folk singer Woody Guthrie, " Song to Woody". The album ranked number 16 and number 23 in the 1998 and 2000 editions of Colin Larkin's book All Time Top 1000 Albums, respectively.Release [ edit ] Left to right: Dana Gillespie, Tony Defries and David Bowie at Andy Warhol's Pork at London's Roundhouse in 1971. Station to Station is the 10th studio album by English musician David Bowie, released on 23 January 1976 by RCA Records. His continued collaboration with guitarist Mick Ronson gels on tracks like “Life on Mars,” where the use of Ronson’s cinematic string arrangement proves particularly evocative. Even some of the ones listed for sale on this page aren't correct and, while laminated, do have the GEM logo. Throughout the track, Bowie makes numerous references to Crowley and his Golden Dawn, Winston Churchill, Heinrich Himmler and the "supermen" of Friedrich Nietzsche.
