Ken, are you sure this isn't some kind of publicity stunt? As they say, "follow the money" - Bowie sales are through the roof!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:32am Parq:

@Rich in Wash: Yeah, that came out in 1974. I imagine very few people who were Babs fans in '74 knew Bowie's music and I expect many of them had never heard of him. God only knows what they made of the lyrics in that song.

I can understand why so many people find the Langley album so affecting. This "Oddity" is both wonderful and disturbing.

Was Kurt Gottschalk going to fill in for Amanda at noon and deliver his Bowie tribute? I thought I heard that at one time.

I don't love that Langley Space Oddity. That Charles de Goal was great though.
