Today marks a special edition of my weekly feature, Friday On The Turntable - instead of looking at one album, I am featuring all of David Bowie's records from 1969 - 1980 - and ranking them! It was a mammoth task, and proved frustrating when putting albums that I love against other ones that I love. Nonetheless, I've provided a ranked list - from #12 - #1. Please keep in mind that I left off Pinups (since it is a covers album), and both of the 'official' live albums from that decade.
If you would like the short / textual version of the list, please scroll past the video. If you would like to watch my video discussion, check out the embedded video below - and be sure to click 'Subscribe' on my Youtube channel, for immediate access to my video posts. As always, I look forward to reading your comments and feedback. If you would like to see Part Two, featuring a ranking of Bowie's later catalog, please click here.
The text/pics version is below - don't scroll down yet if you want to enjoy the video.
