"Lot Lizard" is track 3 on side two of the Macho Sluts record

I have vivid memories of walking into used record(/cd) stores in high school and zoning out to Bowie on store speakers while the smell of moldy record sleeves and concert one sheets landscaped scenes of cranky store employees bargaining over trade-ins.

"Lady Grinning Soul" is a great one! The Runaways movie showed Dakota Fanning as Cherie Currie dressing up as Aladdin Sane Bowie and dancing to that at a school talent show. (DJ Julie interviewed Cherie - she said they changed that for the movie. She actually danced to "1984")

Gerry toured with Bowie in 2010 and i guess prior but did he appear on any records? i thought he was a touring musician.

Spirit of Jazz! Improvise, create, and don't look back!

(Just like Ronnie Ross, the sax virtuoso who used to give lessons to Bowie, who then hired him to do the sax solo on "Walk On The Wild Side" -- he did that amazing, gritty, sexy ending in only 1 take! The Spirit of Jazz!)

From a bbc .com article that I factually corrected today: "Dublin guitarist Gerry Leonard performed and worked alongside Bowie for his later albums, Heathen (2002), Reality (2003) and The Next Day (2013)."

Thanks for playing some lesser-known tracks, Dave. I've never heard half of these before. Makes me wish I'd delved into Bowie's catalog a lot sooner.

Dear god, this song flogs my ass into a dancing frenzy.
Avatar 11:02pm BenDoverMD:

Article mentions the Living Room gig of Gerry's in 94 that Bowie showed up at that was essentially Gerry's "tryout." I was there

Oh, yea!!! OHHHH right!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:03pm Matt from Springfield:

"Young Americans"! Title track of...Young Americans!
A good example of the pre-solo Luther Vandross.
(You can also see Luther when he was with a Harlem youth chorus who recorded some appearances for the early Sesame Street - they aired a clip with him from the 1st season onwards).

@coelacanth: He's got marching orders for the morning. ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:05pm Matt from Springfield:

...That earlier crack of mine about 3 hours of "Sexual Healing" covers...that was in fact based on something real ;)
Among many ruminations on Bowie after hearing the news late last night, I thought that Bowie would've done a good cover of Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing", with a "Young Americans" style rhythm. Kind of like Hot Chip's recent cover of it, maybe a bit more "overstated".
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:06pm Alejandroool:

not really into the idea of going to a tribute show unfortunately

Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:07pm Matt from Springfield:

@Ken HP: The irony!
John Lennon made some appearances on that album, I wonder if Bowie chose to refer to that, or if John thought of that as an in-joke.

The caller was off the rails btw - didn't wanna talk with Dave on air yet didn't understand that I was the call screener and that she wasn't on air. I suspect she may have had an adult beverage or 7.
