Bowie 8/1/47 - 10/1/16 RIP

Oh I’ll be free
Just like that bluebird
Oh I’ll be free
Ain’t that just like me

Bowie's Blackstar Birthday

Black on black. The first Bowie album not to feature him on the front cover and, to my knowledge, the first of his to feature a parental advisory sticker. I like the idea of an album that will appeal predominantly to adults containing a parental advisory sticker. 

The vinyl edition is housed in a stunning sleeve and 12" booklet that the photos don't do justice to.

Oh, and the music is pretty incredible too. Dark and spellbinding, unlike anything he's ever done before and yet uniquely Bowie.
