Discumentary: David Bowie "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars"
For Nick Drake's second album, Bryter Later, he re-teamed with producer Joe Boyd to produce a more upbeat and lush record. This CD also features musicians from Fairport Convention, The Velvet Underground, and The Beach Boys.
Ronstadt's fifth album was released in 1974, and made her a star. She perfects her folk-rock sound through covers of songs by Paul Anka, Hank Williams and Anna McGarrigle. This album had number one hits on the Country and Pop charts, went platinum, and even earned Ronstadt a Grammy award.
Part glam rock, part progressive rock, Bowie's classic redefined himself in the UK and gave him a hit for the first time in the U.S. Bowie's fifth album follows the story of his androgonous extraterrestrial alter-ego, and is considered among the greatest rock albums of all time.
