Too much special ultra-superb radio album is on permanent storage press CD. It is contained in this work is radio special number “ChangesNowBowie” of BBC broadcasted on “January 8, 1997”. Bowie It is a special program to celebrate your 50th birthday.
The composition of the program is a special studio session & interview. With Mary Ann Hobbes as a personality, Bowie’s music companion provides birthday messages and questions (prerecorded) and Bowie responds to it. Between those responses, the program’s own live session is also swept away.

【Excellent BBC session which is also a legend】
In our shop, this hand music program is usually a bonus or gift. However, this work is “special”. The content of the show itself is wonderful than anything, but the sound that conveys it is brilliant. It’s a good sound, as it is a radio program in the 90’s. Actually, this program also has a pre-departure such as “ULTIMATE BBC SESSIONS” “DIVINE SYMMETRY”. However, this work is completely different from them. It is a master that is much more clear and more vivid than the already-fledgers, as a researcher who is always acquiring the bowie title of our shop independently.
Special sessions drawn with that sound are exceptional. Speaking of “50 years old of Bowie”, 50th anniversary commemorative concert which is familiar also in pro shot “50 TH BIRTHDAY BASH” is famous, but this session was recorded during the rehearsal. While strumming the acoustic guitar, I sing plenty of thought. As a matter of fact, there are songs that are not complete unplugged, but overseas enthusiasts are a masterpiece that is becoming a “legend” in the middle. Moreover, the selection of the song is also wonderful. TIN MACHINE’s “Shopping For Girls” will also be shown, but all nine other songs are all in the 70’s. Especially, I can hear plenty of great songs from “Man who sold the world” to “Ziggy Stardust”.
Besides, this work also includes outtakes “I Can not Read” and “Repetition [Alternate Take]” that were not flushed in this broadcast. In addition, 2 songs “Dead Man Walking” and “Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)” bonus are recorded from the session of the TV program “The Jack Docherty Show” after ten days.

【Interview with deep talk depressed】
Although such a studio session is an eye opener, interviews that are sandwiched between moments are also wonderful. Too wonderful. As mentioned above, Bowie’s musicians are commenting and asking questions, but their lineup is luxurious. Enumerating … … Brett Anderson (SUEDE), ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN, MIK · HACKNEL (SIMPLY RED), Neil Tennant (THE CURE) who also co-starred on the 50th anniversary live, (PET SHOP BOYS), Demon Albarn (BLUR), Sean Rider (HAPPY MONDAYS), Brian MORCO (PLACEBO). Celebrities celebrating the 50th birthday of Bowie celebrities whose names remain in old and new British rock history.
Its contents are also great. Robert Smith’s playful birthday songs are funny, but the questions asked from friends are also deep. It is quite different from the inner ring story that tends to be common, and interesting stories of the fan’s eyes are plenty. I picked up some … …

– Why did you call him “Bowie”?
“Bowie knife (a kind of a large knife, hero of the West Pioneering era, named for what James Bowie had favorite), I liked that both sides are sharp edges. Well, the name is Tekito It was. ”

– What songs do you think you wanted to write yourself?
“Shipbuilding” I think it’s one of the most beautiful songs, I can only cry with the intro, especially the Robert Wyatt version is the most tragic and beautiful. ”

– Why did you drink alcohol?
“Every day I wake up” I thought, “It’s the lowest in my life”

– How was it with Andy Warhol?
“He did not think so well, but he seemed to like my shoes, with shoes that I got from Mark Boran, a semi-wedge heel in canary and yellow, because he It was designed shoes! ”

– What’s your favorite costume?
“I do not think that I’m just a” clothing. “I always connect costumes and characters, and when I look at old photos I remember the entire character from time to time. For me, costumes are life experience experience (Laugh) Costume is not just a “clothing clothing.” It is a badge that shows you who you are, it is a symbol. ”

About Bono
“Bono has sent me two great biographies of Samuel Beckett (a playwright born in Ireland), one of them” He has the same hairstyle as you and I surely have stiletto heel shoes ” I wrote it, but Beckett is a completely different hairstyle from me …. ”

– You became the first “neutral icon”, did not you?
“I wanted to be a provocative entity, so I made an intersection of conflicting things (men and women), then at the moment there were two on my head, one was” attracting people’s attention The other thing is “to live in a closed world is totally incomprehensible.” (Omission) I still think that the most important thing in my life is “who am I, Or something, I will never hide it. “If you clear it first, you can enjoy yourself for that much longer.”

– Why do not you write a musical?
“In my head I’ve written 100 musicals, but I always come to my mind when I actually do it, it’s really terrible, I have never been written to the end, eventually it will be” Broadway ” It’s really disappointing to write a musical without falling into a solid Broadway, perhaps that’s my last ambition. ”

… etc … etc. This is part of the Hong. There are other interesting stories such as memories of Brian Eno and drug dependence of the 1970s.
In such circumstances, Scott Walker is the best. It is a singer / songwriter of the United States in the 1960s, but Bowie who heard a message from him took a big breath. “Wow …. (How much, it is wonderful … I can see God in that window, he was my idol.” Behind the story behind, I hear a sound as a lonesome sound. Perhaps the Bowie was wiping his tears. Even from the voice, deep and deep emotions are transmitted to us that are listening.
A wonderful studio session and a deep interview, and Bowie who is blessed by friends and makes me chest. Everything is just a “legendary show”. Radio album drawing with the highest peak sound ever found by researchers themselves. “Legend” to “highest peak” as a piece. Please, please spend this weekend with your real bowie in this work.

当店では、この手の音楽番組はボーナスやギフトになるのが通例。しかし、本作は“特別”なのです。何よりも番組の内容自体が素晴らしいのですが、それを伝えるサウンドも見事。90年代のラジオ番組ですから音が良くて当たり前。実際、この番組は『ULTIMATE BBC SESSIONS』『DIVINE SYMMETRY』等々の既発もあります。しかし、本作はそれらとはまったく違うもの。いつも当店のボウイ・タイトルを監修してくださる研究家が独自入手したもので、既発群よりもはるかにクリアで生々しいマスターのです。
そのサウンドで描かれる特別セッションが格別。“ボウイの50歳”と言えば、プロショット『50TH BIRTHDAY BASH』でもお馴染みの50周年記念コンサートが有名ですが、このセッションはそのリハーサルの合間に録音されたもの。アコースティック・ギターをかき鳴らしつつ、思い入れたっぷりに歌う。実のところ、完全なアンプラグドではない曲もありますが、海外マニアには半ば“伝説”となっているほどの名演なのです。しかも、曲のセレクトも素晴らしい。TIN MACHINEの「Shopping For Girls」も披露しますが、他9曲はすべて70年代。特に『世界を売った男』から『ジギースターダスト』までの大代表曲をたっぷり聴かせてくれるのです。
しかも、本作には本放送では流されなかったアウトテイク「I Can’t Read」「Repetition [Alternate Take]」も追加収録。さらにさらに、10日後のテレビ番組“The Jack Docherty Show”のセッションからも2曲「Dead Man Walking」「Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps)」をボーナス収録しています。

そんなスタジオ・セッションこそが目玉ですが、合間合間に挟まるインタビューも素晴らしい。素晴らしすぎる。前述のようにボウイゆかりのミュージシャンがコメントと質問を寄せているのですが、そのラインアップが豪華絢爛。列挙しますと……50周年ライヴでも共演したロバート・スミス(THE CURE)の他、ブレット・アンダーソン(SUEDE)、イアン・マッカロク(ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN)、ミック・ハックネル(SIMPLY RED)、ニール・テナント(PET SHOP BOYS)、デーモン・アルバーン(BLUR)、ショーン・ライダー(HAPPY MONDAYS)、ブライアン・モルコ(PLACEBO)。新旧の英国ロック史に名を残す著名人達がボウイ50歳の誕生日を祝うのです。

Bowie who left a wonderful studio session and inspiring interview with a special number commemorating the age of 50. However, even though it is a legendary program praised by maniacs all over the world, interviewing in English is somewhat high. Therefore, we prepared a TV special number with Japanese subtitles that you can touch “50 years old Bowie” for those who are not good at English for bonus.
It is contained in this work is the TV program “AN EARTHLING AT FIFTY” recorded in the same “January 1997” as the main press press CD. It is a special number commemorating Bowie’s 50 year old, and the recording place is the same New York as press CD. It is a broadcast in the latter half of the 1990s, and it is an official grade professional shot of Bari Bali as well as quality.
And the content of the program you care about is an interview that focuses on Bowie. The theme is “Bowie’s 50 Years”, a new work “EARTHLING” which was just before release. There was also an interview on the streets in the New York area, where somehow the program DJ asked, “I’m looking for Jiggy Styduast, do not you know?” Or asking, “What do you think the bowie makes jungle?” I will go. “Bowie is a jungle system? Seriously? David Bowie is 50 years old and a jungle?” “Does it start with DJ?” And the expression of fans who are seriously surprised is also sightseeing.
However, it is incomplete to the last. The essential point of course is an interview with the Bowie himself. First of all, the bowie is in a good mood for the strongest impression. Of course, there are scenes to talk to Majima, but about 90% smile. Is not it a smile or something, is not it something? LOL is big enough to be bad. “It’s okay with pronunciation” bowie. “It is not easy to understand whether this is interesting or not, such as” Booi “here,” This hairstyle becomes a drowned rat without a hairdressing agent ” I speak a lot. A model confirming the stage of the “EARTHLING TOUR” to come to the side of the Bowie is reflected, and it is also a matter of thinking that “Oh, rare!” Start playing with that model and shake it in a messy guy saying “California’s gig gho! Of course, I think that it was a black joke of the California big earthquake three years ago (1994), but it is too black ….
Of course, the content of the interview is dark even if I say so. Of course not only the feelings of music but also the circumstances when I wanted to escape from Ziggy, the circumstances of living in Berlin, what suffered from drugs, the reason why I decided to handle management, about the aliens, the life view I lived with the development of rock, The topic is diverse. I will give you some … …

“I was asked,” Looking back on what I did in the 1970s. “Oh, it was awfully something I was doing at that time, I thought that I could use it again.If it is good to combine this riff with this riff … …. gradually “awfully” against me, it was the golden age for me, now is the era of “blue” So I am reviewing myself ”

“Ziggie was a fun and cheeky guy anyway”

“I felt it was my wife when I was clean, we just flew away from Ross, we flew to Berlin, the heroin city, swearing and not knowing anything, chosen by romance and history.”

“When you get out of the world of drugs to the end you feel like coming out with a good human nature, I think it was a pleasant experience since I could experience it, of course there is absolutely no recommendation to anyone.” It will be the same as saying “Please come to the moon with a shuttle.” Actually I’m scared of the accident, I do not recommend it, but I also know that the journey is wonderful I will survive well from that danger I was able to say that I was happy because I was able to do it. ”

“Our generation had been conceived by my own argument anyway and among the things we did were particularly useful was the elimination of the old idea of ​​the 19th century and the class difference, elitism, people I felt that attitude towards sex should also be modified.We made a contribution to the birth of a pluralistic society.The ’70s is the beginning of the 21st century’, is not it the best quote?
“(It’s a little exaggerated, I insist they are the ones who made a big impact on society as a musician’s position …) That’s what we are!”

“Rock can be very precisely and focused on people’s thoughts and reflected at that time I was fascinated with pretty intense music – not Beatles, but Velvet Underground – the Beatles’ Inside Paul is a John Lennon faction ”

“Even when I thought it was quite a big success, I felt very resistance to being a mainstream faction”

… etc … etc. This is part of Hong. From dangerous remarks (to letters) to jokes or earnest words to lost words, all of which is transmitted to vivid by Japanese subtitles and the voice and expression of Bowie himself. Not only is it interesting, but it is an hour that you can see a smile just by watching it. Please look back on “50 years with Bowie” with him who is full of face this weekend.
本作に収められているのは、本編プレスCDと同じ「1997年1月」に収録されたテレビ番組“AN EARTHLING AT FIFTY”。ボウイの50歳を記念する特番で、収録場所もプレスCDと同じニューヨークです。90年代後半の放送でもあり、クオリティはもちろんバリバリのオフィシャル級プロショットです。
そして、気になる番組内容はボウイを中心にしたインタビューもの。テーマは“ボウイの50年”と、当時リリース直前だった新作『EARTHLING』です。ニューヨーク界隈の路上インタビューもありまして、そこではなぜか番組DJが「ジギースターダストを探してるんだけど、知らない?」と訊いて回ったり、「ボウイがジャングルやるってどう思う?」と質問していく。「ボウイがジャングル系? マジで? デヴィッド・ボウイが50歳でジャングル?」「まさかDJでもはじめるの?」と本気で驚くファンの表情も見物です。
しかし、それはあくまで余興。肝心要はもちろんボウイ本人へのインタビューです。まず強烈に印象的なのは、ボウイの上機嫌ぶり。もちろん、マジメに語るシーンもあるのですが、約9割は笑顔。それも微笑みなどではなく、何かキメてる?と訝しくなるほどの大爆笑。「発音は“ボウイ”でいいんだ。こちらでは“ブーイ”と呼ばれる」「この髪型は整髪剤がないと溺れたネズミになる」等、面白いのかそうでもないのか分からないジョークを連発しながら、大いに語る。ボウイの側らに来るべき“EARTHLING TOUR”のステージを確認する模型が映り、「お、レア!」と思うのも束の間。その模型で遊び始め「カリフォルニアのギグだー!」と言いながら、グチャグチャに揺する。もちろん、3年前(1994年)に起きたカリフォルニア大地震のブラック・ジョークだと思いますが、黒すぎる……。





「(少々大げさじゃない? いちミュージシャンの立場で社会に多大な影響を与えたのは自分たちだと主張するのは……)それが僕らなんだよ!」
