Each David Bowie album is unique. Some are universally lionised, some regarded as merely legendary, some, pretentious codswallop. But we all have our favourites. In this series of podcasts, I meet up with writers, musicians, critics and assorted woodland folk, to explore their choice of album in rambling roundelays of free-form facting, anorak-grade geekery, pompous pontification, impassioned argument and highly-contentious chat.

You can't help but love the artist and the insight of Joe Walsh who opens up here, as featured in a chapter of my first audio book, about what it's like to be Ringo Starr's brother in-law, to be mentored by Who drummer Keith Moon, how love had eluded Joe for so long, plus joining the Eagles, and gifting Pete Townshend a guitar and amp.

Join us for this 90 minute epic as we continue our mid 80s odyssey through the hectic schedule of D. Bowie, who is dressed in a frightwig and tights hurtling around labyrinths, or smoother than a filtered Turkish gasper, suave and Soho-sexy for Absolute Beginners.

It could very well be the most cohesive sounding collection of strays ever assembled. Comprised mostly of outtakes from their storied past, some that were a decade old, some that had no vocals, others that did, most given overdubs and new vocals, plus a couple new songs, it's an album that got made because The Rolling Stones wanted to tour, but the…

The devil's music, they called it, and kept calling it right up through the 1950's, when rhythm and blues gave way to rock and roll. The push back by the “adults” would only get worse as the music became less restrained and more shocking, to some. We begin this episode in the American south, six years to the day before Jimi Hendrix was born. EVERY …

Welcome back to Albumto album with guest Bowie obsessive Adam Buxton! Scary Monsters is a milestone album. It is one I have long wanted to tackle here and I have quite a few thoughts about it. Here are a few of them. David Bowie entered 1980 restless for change and a new sense of purpose. The generally lukewarm reaction to his previous album Lodger…

Stiles is known for his working with Gordie Johnson of Big Sugar, but that's just a bit of the story of the go-to player who's vibe is as chill as his heart is big, and talent immense, on vintage keyboard instruments and feel-good melodies and vocals. Otherwise known as Crystal Finger, Jay brings along drummer/back…
 
Tim Worthington - writer, podcaster and cultural archaeologist - is someone who digs deep and delights in obscure details. So, it follows that in this episode of Albumtoalbum, he chose to eschew the album format and instead, picked an intriguing slice of Bowie history - the 1971 single 'Holy Holy', originally recorded in the weird dead period just …
