We value your input so please make comments at the end of this post.

The second installment of the BowieTest™ wades deeper into the beloved artist’s extensive 1970’s catalog. You’ll need to possess a passionate familiarity with albums like Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust because we drill down into the heart of the Bowie song book – far beneath the safety of his Top-40 hits. Good luck, folks!

Rest in peace, David. Enjoy the view from up there.

BowieTest™ Vol. 2 – Deeper Cuts From The ’70s

The second volume of the BowieTest™ swims out deep into the beloved artist’s extensive 1970’s catalog – far beyond the safety of his Top-40 hits. You’ll need to have a particularly firm familiarity with albums like Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust and Diamond Dogs. You will need to drill down into the heart of Bowie’s 1970’s song book rather than merely float at the top with the ubiquitous classics, like “Starman” and “Rebel Rebel.” Good luck!

Rest in peace, David. Thanks for all the music and the memories that have become part of it.
