David Bowie

Pin Ups (2015 remaster)



Released: 25th Sep 2015


new recordings of a brace of 60's British hits - a tour through Bowie's taste in 60's music a mixed bag stylistically, opening with the Pretty Things' high-energy Bo Diddley homage 'Rosalyn' & segueing directly into a hard, surging rendition of Them's version of Bert Berns' 'Here Comes the Night', filled with crunchy guitars; 'I Wish You Would' & 'Shapes of Things' were both showcases for Bowie's & Mick Ronson's guitars & 'See Emily Play' emphasized the punkish (as opposed to the psychedelic) side of the song.

'Sorrow', which benefited from a new saxophone break, was actually a distinct improvement over the original & Bowie's slow version of 'I Can't Explain' was distinctly different from the Who's original. ‘Pin Ups’ marked the swan song for the Spiders from Mars & something of an interlude between the 1st & 2nd phases of his international career.
