BBC WORLD SERVICE CATCH UP
12th October 2017

If you missed the recent BBC WORLD SERVICE radio documentary DAVID BOWIE's "Heroes" 40th Anniversary hosted by FLORENCE WELCH you can still catch it via the BBC iPlayer for the next 26 days.

Florence Welch, from the British band Florence + The Machine, marks the 40th anniversary of the release of David Bowie's seminal "Heroes" LP by exploring the personal and musical factors that influenced the album's writing and recording in Berlin in 1977.

Florence will feature archive of the late David Bowie explaining why he chose to live and work in Berlin and the impact the city's history had on the masterpiece he created. She'll also meet the album's producer Tony Visconti to get an insight to the unique recording techniques he employed to interpret Bowie's creative vision and how the characteristics of the famous Hansa Studios, which are situated in a huge former chamber music concert hall, contributed to the album's influential sounds. Iggy Pop, who was living with Bowie in Berlin during the recording of the album, recalls how a battle with drug addition, bankruptcy and a legal dispute with his ex wife for access to his son all provided inspiration for the album's lyrics and Brian Eno, who collaborated with David throughout the LP's recording, explains the unique musical structures he and David employed to compose the innovative songs.

Berlin's radical cultural diversity had always fascinated Bowie and Florence will explain how the opportunity to live and work in the city during the turbulent political period prior to the fall of 'the Wall' provided the perfect austere environment for David and his collaborators to experiment with music inspired by several German techno bands of the 70's, including Neu!, Kraftwerk and Can.

LATEST BW COMPETITION - 10 DAYS REMAINING
12th October 2017

Ten days remaining to enter...

Here's your chance to win ONE of THREE copies of 'EARTHBOUND: DAVID BOWIE AND THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH' by SUSAN COMPO, courtesy of Jawbone Press.

This paperback, 288-page book is published on 24th October 2017 via by Jawbone.

Earthbound: David Bowie and The Man Who Fell To Earth by Susan Compo Synopsis: 'Before there was Star Wars ... before there was Close Encounters ... there was The Man Who Fell To Earth.' - advertising tag line for 1981 reissue of the film.

Earthbound is the first book-length exploration of a true classic of twentieth-century science-fiction cinema, shot under the heavy, ethereal skies of New Mexico by the legendary British director Nicolas Roeg and starring David Bowie in a role he seemed born for as an extraterrestrial named Thomas Newton who comes to Earth in search of water. Based on a novel by the highly regarded American writer Walter Tevis, this dreamy, distressing, and visionary film resonates even more strongly in the twenty-first century than it did on its original release during the year of the US Bicentennial.

Drawing on extensive research and exclusive first-hand interviews with members of the cast and crew, Earthbound begins with a look at Tevis's 1963 novel before moving into a detailed analysis of a film described by its director as 'a sci-fi film without a lot of sci-fi tools' and starring a group of actors - Bowie, Buck Henry, Candy Clark, Rip Torn - later described by one of them (Henry) as 'not a cast but a dinner party.' It also seeks to uncover the mysteries surrounding Bowie's rejected soundtrack to the film (elements of which later ended up his groundbreaking 1977 album Low) and closes with a look at his return to the themes and characters of The Man Who Fell To Earth in one of his final works, the acclaimed musical production Lazarus.

My Bowie Story: Memories of David Bowie by Dale K. Perry Just published is MY BOWIE STORY: MEMORIES OF DAVID BOWIE by DALE K. PERRY (ISBN: 9781532030116).

You may recall this special Bowie fan book project last October asking for contributors. Now, after a lengthy 12 months this work is finally now published with over sixty different writers, eight-five stories and more than thirty photographs.

Synopsis: Dale K. Perry can still picture herself at a shopping centre at age twelve, pooling her money with her best friend so they could buy the album with that 'Space Oddity' song. A few years later, she went to her first Bowie concert, and even though she arrived to discover her seat was behind the stage, it didn't matter: She was in the same building as David Bowie.

In 'My Bowie Story', she teams up with sixty other storytellers to look back on more than four decades of memories featuring Bowie. Filled with heartfelt stories and photographs, the fans describe how Bowie's music, personas, and creativity changed their lives. The eighty-five stories also offer a glimpse of Bowie's kindness as he interacted with his admirers while relating the impact his message had on the sexuality, education, and the lifelong achievements of multiple generations. From Space Oddity to Blackstar, the tales include personal encounters with Bowie and offer deep insights that longtime fans and those just discovering his brilliance will cherish.

Containing 392 pages, the book is available in softcover or e-book (at iUniverse, Amazon, B&N) and will make a wonderful holiday gift for all the Bowie fans in your life.

You can purchase My Bowie Story: Memories of David Bowie NOW via Amazon or direct from the publishers iUniverse website.

Note: All royalties from the sale of 'My Bowie Story' will be donated to charity in memory of David Bowie.

ANCIANT MEETING / ANNOUNCEMENT
3rd October 2017

'Parlophone respond to DAVID BOWIE 'Berlin' box set mastering criticisms' by Paul Sinclair from superdeluxeedition.com website...

David Bowie 'A New Career In A New Town (1977 - 1982) Box Set In the last few days there has been mounting criticism from some of the audiophile community about perceived mastering errors on Parlophone's new David Bowie box set 'A New Career In A New Town'.

In terms of specifics, criticisms levelled include the following points:

- There is a volume drop during the title track of "Heroes" at around the 2.50 mark.
- Low has a rather overcooked bass-heavy remastering which spoils side one, in particular.
- Various issues with the Lodger remaster, including a similar increase in bass some tape/noise flutter being present and an incorrect fade-up on the beginning of 'Red Sails'.

Not everyone complaining has problems with all of the above, but there is a general consensus that given the status of the iconic track, the "Heroes" issue is disappointing and rather puzzling. The accusation is one of sloppiness; lack of quality control.

In fact, the strength of feeling is reflected in the reviews on Amazon UK many of which bring up these issues. There have been enough complaints for the UK arm of the online retailer to actually stop selling the CD box set for the time being (it's still available from third party sellers) so this issue is obviously of concern to the record label.

SDE put these criticisms to JULIAN STOCKTON, David Bowie's publicist and and as a result I was invited to Warner's London HQ this morning to discuss this issue in some depth, with Julian and Tim Fraser-Harding (President, Global Catalogue, Recorded Music for Warner Music Group).

'Bottom end' on remastering

During a conversation that lasted close to two hours, the team stressed how much time and energy had gone into both getting the music and the presentation of this set right. I was told, for example, that over 50 vinyl test pressings for just one of the albums in A New Career In A New Town were checked. In terms of the issue around the mastering and the additional bass or 'bottom end' on albums like Low and Lodger, the point was strenuously made that Tony Visconti has never been involved in remastering these albums before, and what you hear on these new remasters is how he always wanted them to sound. Back in the 1970s, there was only so much bottom end you could deliver, due to the limitations of vinyl, but this was an opportunity to address that. Visconti of course, was the producer of all four records (Low, "Heroes", Lodger and Scary Monsters) and therefore 'in the room' when they were being made. He has the credibility to make this call, even if the sound isn't to everyone's taste (or what they are used to via previous remasters). This approach was discussed with Visconti and agreed on beforehand. In other words, the object was never to make these sound as much like the original vinyl pressings as possible. Warner Music/Parlophone categorically reject the notion that these sound differences constitute any kind of error or fault with the box set.

"Heroes" 'change in volume'

In terms of the problem on the title track of "Heroes", it was explained that this is down to an issue on the master tape. It was stressed that for all four albums, the label went back to the original analogue master tapes for new digital transfers (done at 192/24). The issue on the master tape of "Heroes" is described as a 'loss of energy' on that title track that starts at around the 2.42 mark, and lasts for about four or five seconds. Parlophone stressed that they were very keen to maintain the integrity of using the original master tape. So rather than 'fly in' a section from another tape generation or source (such as a safety copy) they kept to the original master tape transfer and the track "Heroes" was given a boost of high frequency during the period of this loss of energy. When this high frequency boost finishes (around the 2.50 mark) the effect creates the impression of a drop in volume but Parlophone insist that this simply isn't the case. The level is consistent with the start. Again, Warner Music/Parlophone reject the notion that this disc is in any way faulty. You are listening to the original master tape with this slight frequency adjustment for a short period in the middle of "Heroes" to correct an issue inherent with the master tape itself. I asked why this issue on the master tape hadn't come up before and was told that it was probably because this was the first time in a very long time that the original master tape was being used and no-one knows when the issue with the tape may have come about.

Tape hiss etc.

Warner Music / Parlophone emphasised that there was no de-noising at all on any of the remasters within this box set any hiss present is as per the original master tapes.

Above is a summary of the issues discussed at the meeting, but below you can read a statement in full issued by Julian Stockton, David Bowie's publicist:

'DAVID BOWIE A NEW CAREER IN A NEW TOWN - "HEROES"

Concerning "Heroes" what fans are hearing is not a level drop. This is, through mastering, an attempt to resolve an issue that exists on the original master tape.

On the flat unmastered transfer, there was a temporary loss of energy on the track just before 2.50. During the album mastering some high-frequency automation (in the region of +- 6dB) has been added in order to compensate for this. So to clarify, there is not a drop in volume, there is a high frequency boost for a couple of seconds at the loss of energy which then returns to normal and the track continues to the end at a level consistent to the start.

As the co-producer of "Heroes" Tony Visconti, was both fully involved and approved the remastering of this and all original albums within the set.

DAVID BOWIE A NEW CAREER IN A NEW TOWN - REMASTERING

The albums contained in A New Career In A New Town are how Tony Visconti, who was not involved in past remasterings, always wanted them to sound. He was previously hampered by the restrictions of vinyl regarding the bottom end.

Any tape hiss on the albums comes straight from the original analogue tapes. For A New Career In A New Town, there was no de-noising as had happened on the previous remastering of these records. The hiss is far more true to the sound of the original analogue tapes which Bowie and Visconti would have heard when making the record.'

WHEN ZIGGY PLAYED THE MARQUEE
1st October 2017

When Ziggy Played The Marquee by Terry O'Neill Published this month is WHEN ZIGGY PLAYED THE MARQUEE: David Bowie's Last Performance as Ziggy Stardust by TERRY O'NEILL.

When Ziggy played The Marquee Club in Soho, London, in October 1973, most of those invited to the small venue did not realise that this would be the last performance David Bowie would ever give as Ziggy Stardust. Terry O'Neill, celebrated photographer, was given unprecedented access to document the event. O'Neill captured Bowie and his crew backstage as they went through costume changes, and Bowie transformed into the character he'd soon put to rest. On stage, dodging television cameras and lights, O'Neill snapped the incredible stage presence for which Bowie and his crew had become renowned. O'Neill remembers of Bowie: "He became a character on stage. As much as a person takes a role in a play for the West End or on Broadway, learning the lines, putting on the costumes - this was, I think, the way Bowie treated his stage. This night at the Marquee, I witnessed a modern-day Hamlet - and it was Ziggy Stardust". Foreword by Gary Kemp.

       - Hardcover.
       - 208 pages.
       - Publisher: ACC Art Books.
       - Date: 14th September.
       - Foreword: Gary Kemp.

About the Author: Terry O'Neill has had a star-studded career. He has been in the business of capturing the most iconic, candid, and unguarded moments of the famous and infamous for six decades. His reportage photography chronicled the evolution of fashion in the postwar era, and later the emergence of bands such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and The Animals, and icons like David Bowie and Elton John. He has been photographer-of-choice for a multitude of celebrities, from Frank Sinatra and Audrey Hepburn to Raquel Welch and Paul Newman, and remains the only photographer to have captured shots not only of every James Bond to date, but also more than 25 Bond girls and a staggering 150 Oscar-nominated actors and actresses. O'Neill was awarded with the Royal Society of Arts' highest honour, the Centenary Medal, in 2012.

You can pre-order When Ziggy Played the Marquee which is now scheduled for 14th September.
