Info


Plastic soul is soul music that is believed to lack authenticity. Unlike the similarly termed blue-eyed soul, plastic soul was considered especially kitschy and insincere compared to true soul music. In the eyes of soul music devotees, songs and albums described as plastic soul were those which seemed to be cheap attempts at replicating the characteristic sounds and qualities of soul music without truly understanding or genuinely representing the genre, either out of actual ignorance, poor.

A visionary since the very beginning of his career, David Bowie was the legit Pop The moment David Bowie and Andy Warhol met. In 1971, while traveling. There were three distinct periods in the career of David Bowie during the 1970s. For die-hard David Bowie fans the transition from Diamond Dogs to Young Americans was not easy, yet this DVD is better than most of the Under Review-type analyses out there, for much of the same crew that gave us the superior Mott the Hoople Under Review work their magic here, again unraveling the tale of the thin white duke and his. You know, he called that record plastic soul, but no one will dare call it plastic soul now, Carlos Alomar, David Bowie's longtime guitarist, says of the newly unearthed album The Gouster, out today as part of the spectacular Who Can I Be Now 1974-1976 box set. Why Because it came from the soul of David Bowie. You can't call it plastic soul. It's the perfect soul album. The Gouster was born in the summer of 1974, at recording sessions at Philadelphia's Sigma Sound during a break in the tour for Bowie's Diamond Dogs album. David Bowie performs on the Dick Cavett Show on Dec. 4, via Getty Images file. Music Icon David Bowie reportedly uttered these words to Luther Vandross in December of 1974. The declaration is just a snapshot of the special relationship between the two musical geniuses, recorded within the pages of the Craig Seymour biography, Luther: The Life and Longing of Luther Vandross. Ava Cherry, a backing singer on the album says she brought Bowie to the Apollo in Harlem to help him build the soul sound that he kept hearing and wanted to be sonically part of. True to chameleon form, Bowie says in voiceover, I tried to do my own version of that kind of music. David Bowie autographs copies of his newest album 'Outside' at the grand opening of a Herald Square music store 26 September 1995 in New York. Characteristically for Bowie, what took place at Sigma Sound was total soul immersion. He took on a brand new persona, The Gouster a hip American soulboy in baggy slacks and red braces and the phrase became the albums working title and the title of a lost pure soul album that would emerge from out-takes of the session in 2016. It wasnt so much a concept as a way of setting the tone that we were going to make a very hip album, said Visconti. Bowie was born David Robert Jones on 8 January 1947 in Brixton, London. His mother, Margaret Mary Peggy née Burns 2 October 1913 2 April 2001, was born at Shorncliffe Army Camp near Cheriton, Kent.

Few had succeeded as Bowie did now. The album's sound, which the singer identified as plastic soul. David Bowie Plastic Soul. 레이블: Main Stream MAST-114. Format: DVDVerified Purchase. David Bowie: The Plastic Soul ReviewDavid Bowie: The Road to the Railway and Station To Station. Beware These two DVDs are exactly the same. The documentary follows Bowie's career from Diamond Dogs, through David Live, Young Americans, The Man Who Fell to Earth, Station to Station, and ending up with the Berlin trilogy, although, in actual fact it is a DVD about Young Americans and what came before and after Berlin is mentioned as an afterthought. I would guess that a good 45 minutes is about the Young Americans album, with the other bits sharing about 5 minutes each

Dont_Wory
important note, This is not the show reviewed as this date in Pim J De La Parras book!
don't buy this disc expecting Bowie to interrupt "Changes" and blast out "Panic In Detroit"!
so now we've dealt with what this cd isn't we can deal with what it is, This is an excellent audience recording of the late 1974 Soul Tour, possibly THE Best recording of this leg lots of audible detail from every instrument.
however apart from excellent tight grooving versions of Sorrow, Rebel Rebel & Changes - the last 2 being very like the superior Station To Station Tour, this rock fan feels David is journeying up a musical blind alley that leaves him sounding like a retro nostalgia act. Earl Slick was getting impatient and this reviewer can see his point.
Things are redeemed somewhat with The Jean Genie where slick can let loose, Moonage Daydream follows but its very soulified , the worst of the tour, vastly inferior to Madison University or Radio City Music Hall. Earl Slick provides a great solo but the effect is of a Lion roaring in captivity, the song ends in a confused mess.
a couple of soul songs then Suffragette city is murdered, Earl Slicks guitar is mixed ridiculously low and the song is smothered by awful over the top backing vocals of the coked-up shouting variety, for a second it seems like slick is breaking through but the fader is soon yanked down again.
the "tedious psychodrama of Rock 'n'Roll Suicide" - to quote a newspaper review of the tour follows and David does the vocal equivalent of "Blacking-up" - cringeworthy, embarrasing and borderline offensive.
Diamond Dogs follows and the sound mixers hand on Earl Slicks fader is relaxed a little but not enough. theres more saxophone than we've ever heard on this song, but I must acknowledge that the audience clearly love what they are hearing "see you tommorow!" says Bowie and thats it.
