David Bowie - Divine Symmetry (1996 Acoustic At BBC)

Mr. Bowie - you can do no wrong with this fellow here. Although he has released some music I can't exactly dig recently - nothing can take away from his legacy. Style, Provocateur, Intelligence and Scandal. The man wielded so many tools to go along with the obvious voice and instrumental skills. Truly, enough cannot be said. And here we have a rare acoustic performance for BBC Studios that was broadcast in 1996 and contains a nice fillet of his ouevre. Lovely versions of 'The Man Who Sold The World', 'White Light White Heat' and 'Aladin Sane' are my personal favorites but let me know which ones are yours.

1. The Man Who Sold The World
2. Supermen
3. Interview
4. Andy Warhol
5. Repetition
6. Interview
7. Lady Stardust
8. White Light White Heat
9. Interview
10. Shopping For Girls
11. Interview
12. Quicksand
13. Aladin Sane

Wow, thank you. I'm quite a Bowie fan, and I've never heard this one before. Just started listening to "Quicksand", and I love this version.
