On my turntable: David Bowie - Hunky Dory

My Bowie period was short, from '96-'97, (maybe '98, tops). Of all the albums I bought during that time, Hunky Dory (1971) is my favorite. Despite some sporadic lush arrangements, the album's strength is in its simplicity. Stripped-down tracks like "Queen Bitch", "Kooks", and "Oh! You Pretty Things" are standouts. Great record.

I came out because of the record, in 1972. It's a long story...maybe I should blog it.

OH that would be a story worth blogging about.
