Songs Heard in Record Shops # 1 David Bowie

It's never too late to start a new, spurious series on this blog three and a half years in. This was playing on a Saturday morning in Beatdown the record shop opposite my flat just now. 2016 has been a strange year by whatever measure is applied to it but for many people it remains the year of David Bowie, Prince, Alan Vega and Leonard Cohen. Perhaps the guitar solos from this eight minute version of the track from Diamond Dogs on 1974's David Live are a little too shrill and long but when David is on the mic you kind of want it to go on even longer than it does!
