David Bowie - Aladdin Sane (1973)

Here it is! Not my favourite Bowie record by any stretch but definitely in my most important records of all time collection.

I was a bare-arsed 13 year old when this bitch of a record ear wormed it’s way into my head, courtesy of my big sister.

The first track I ever heard was “Time” on side two which completely fucked up any teenage/prepubescent sensibilities. This music was just so decadent. Mike Garson’s piano playing was also fucking jazz - what was that all about?

My reasonably conservative musical roadmap took a complete U-turn with this record. I have never fully recovered.

There’s possibly nothing in my entire collection that is as ageless as this masterpiece. The fact that my son Peter listened to this in his car on his wedding day speaks volumes.
