The Jean Genie single cover 1972

29/5/16 – David Bowie – The Jean Genie – Top Of The Pops Live – 1973 / The Jean Genie – Video Starring Cyrinda Foxe – 1972

Don’t worry, I’m not finished yet and thanks to some helpful suggestions, the tragedy of classic No.2 songs being held off the No.1 spot by unworthy chart toppers continues. The Jean Genie was released by David Bowie in November 1972 as the first single from the forthcoming album Aladdin Sane released in April 1973.

Annette Peacock, I'm The One 1972 - Cover Art

6/2/16 – Annette Peacock – I’m The One – 1972

I’ve written about Annette Peacock before and whenever I hear her music I become transfixed by the pure scope of her vision. She can be sexy and avant-garde, sensitive and scary, catchy and experimental, she’s sixties, seventies, eighties, nineties and futuristic, a timeless wonder, she is Jazz, Blues, Electronic, Rap, Pop, Progressive, Singer/Songwriter, Poet, Funk, Rock, Soul – everything […]

20/1/16 – Dale Griffin – AKA Buffin – 24th October 1948 – 17th January 2016 / Mott The Hoople – Saturday Gigs – 1974

Although another December/January Rock and Roll Death has us wondering when it’s going to stop, in Buffin’s case it wasn’t a surprise. Diagnosed with Alhzeimer’s in 2006 at the age of 58, it was never going to end well. At the Mott The Hoople reunion gigs in 2009 fellow Herefordshire drummer, Pretender, Martin Chambers stepped in […]

Mick Ronson 1974

13/12/15 – Mick Ronson – Only After Dark – 1974 / Human League – Only After Dark – 1980

Mick Ronson, one of the great North Eastern guitars heroes was from Hull and although we love him for his thick growling tone and his exquisite lead solos he was also an in demand arranger, producer and accomplished piano player. See the post here where Lou Reed talks about Ronson and vice versa. http://indeepmusicarchive.net/2013/10/lou-reed-talks-mick-ronson-mick-ronson-talks-lou-reed/ In this […]

15/9/15 – David Bowie – Oh! You Pretty Things – The Old Grey Whistle Test – 1972 / Peter Noone – Oh! You Pretty Things – 1971

A 1972 session for the Old Grey Whistle Test by David Bowie, Mick Ronson, Trevor Bolder and Woody Woodmansey. It wasn’t broadcast till 1982, probably due to a time issue, Queen Bitch and Five Years being two songs that were broadcast. Oh! You Pretty Things is a song from the pre Ziggy album Hunky Dory released in 1971. Although Bowie […]
