I’ve have just bought this book and it’s fascinating. Amazingly detailed and beautifully illustrated. I can’t imagine any Bowie fan being disappointed with it.
n 1975, Bowie achieved his first major American crossover success with the number-one single “Fame” and the hit album Young Americans, which the singer characterised as “plastic soul”. The sound constituted a radical shift in style that initially alienated many of his UK devotees. He then confounded the expectations of both his record label and his American audiences by recording the minimalist album Low (1977)—the first of three collaborations with Brian Eno over the next two years. This so-called “Berlin Trilogy” albums all reached the UK top five and received lasting critical praise.
