“He was more of a benefactor than a friend in a way most people think of friendship. He went a bit out of his way to bestow some good karma on me.”
A small tribute today on the first anniversary of Bowie’s death via another icon.
Off his overlooked album from 1986, “Blah,Blah,Blah,” it is probably the most commercial release by Iggy and he disowned it saying it “a Bowie album in all but name”;on the song his low croon suits it really well and suitably co-written, produced and mixed with Bowie and David Richards (Queen, Duran Duran)
Bonus tracks are a couple of longer mixes of a previous single , “Cry For Love” – much more rocky with some mad synth strings (almost Goth Rock) and co-written by Steve Jones, who also contributes guitar (check out that solo!!). Going back to, or updating, the Stooges sound if they were into the Sisters Of Mercy!!
It closes with “Baby It Can Fall” which does sound very much like Bowie, bright synths and big drums, especially on this remix.
