ChangesNowBowie was recorded in 1996 on the run up to Bowie's 50th Birthday Concert at Madison Square Garden and featured on the BBC along with an interview and a number of tributes on his birthday on 8th January 1997 and only recently released as part of this year's Record Shop Day.
Only nine mostly acoustic tracks on which he is joined by Gail Ann Dorsey (bass/vocals), Reeves Gabrel (guitars/vocals) and Mark Plati (keyboards and Programming).

Lovely stuff


  1. Some nice performances, it has to be said. But the slew of unremarkable Bowie material that pours out every Record Store Day is getting pretty tiring now.

  2. Interesting. Don't think I've ever come across this before, and I thought I had a pretty full Bowie collection.

  3. I'd class myself as a pretty full-on Bowie fan, but the seemingly never-ending slew of reissues and live albums is beginning to overwhelm me now. I wonder what the rush is to get it all out at once? I'd rather be drip fed (in the manner of Bob's Bootleg Series) so that I have time to fully appreciate each individual release.
    Having said all that, ChangesNowBowie is a nice addition to the canon, obvs.
