Is this even legal? I hate the idea but that could be just because Im jealous. It appears the iconic David Bowie album “The Man Who Sold The Wold”
Tony Visconti and Woody Woodmansey are taking on this classic for reasons purely selfish. Performing at The Garage in London, all 7 songs will be done- no word on who’s picking up the vocals but it wont be Bowie. Considering this album came out in 1970 the opportunity to hear it live with two of its original creators is pretty cool- but vocals doth maketh the sound. By the way that title track is one of my favorite of all time- I even forgive Kurt Cobain for his groaning version.
Woodmansey tells the Guardian: “The Man Who Sold the World was the first album Mick and I played on, our first even in a proper London studio.
“It was the forerunner of what we could do sound-wise and we just let rip. We spent three weeks recording because we were creating the songs as we went.
“This was the album that showed Bowie trying out things and finding his direction. It got critical acclaim – but we never toured it. So the idea of being able to go out and finally play some of those great tracks live was just so exciting.”
Visconti, show says Bowie is OK with this and adds: “It became the blueprint for the rest of David’s career. I’ve rarely played anything as ambitious and demanding as the music of that great batch of songs.”
September 17th is the big day- bet it gets a digital release.
