it was amazing
bookshelves: biography, music-biography
Read in September, 2008

Provides illumination for readers who think they may already know the story. The details of the recording of all albums covered here are covered as well in Pegg's "The Complete David Bowie", but Seabrook finds a new spin to give on this period of Bowie and even Iggy's career. Ultimately satisfying and inspirational, with valuable insight into the process and techniques Bowie developed recording these LP's. I gained a new appreciation for songs from this period I was lukewarm about. And the songs I loved, I found myself loving even more. Also, a valuable track by track analysis of all the music covered here... which in the case of "The Idiot" is worth the book alone because it removes all doubt of exactly what Bowie's contributions to that recording are.
