Granz being the groovy cat he is, rang out the riffs to this classic Bowie-penned numbah, made famous by Mott the Hoople. (Matt-the-Hoople in this rendition, heheh.) Borris put in some stellar organ and piano. I voxxed it.

Great history lesson for me researching the lyrics about Bowie and the glam rock days. Also, Mott was breaking up as a group due to lack of commercial success when Bowie handed them this anthem. Talk about cool. I also wound up downloading about 15 versions of this song from various artists on iTunes, lol. Even the guy from Iron Maiden did one.

Cheers!

thx Jk, Beatle, pete, JD, Did. In my mind, Bowie is father of Alternative Rock. His musical contributions are as significant as The Beatles, Stones or Zeppelin, but in such a different vane. "Never got it off on all that revolution stuff," a backward jab at what was quickly becoming old school during the Ziggy Stardust days...a dividing line between musical epochs, Bowie's glam years, lyrics and structures enabled a whole new kind of rock music to emanate from the 70's onward. Bowie's stuff is always beautiful, edgy and intelligent. I look at the GaGa's of today and think, "Yeah, try that schtick as a man in the "Nixon"-conservative world of the early 70's. And, do it with extremely great songs and writing--instead of crap, lol." Thing about Bowie is, he brought great songs and a spectacle to the stage, hand-in-hand.

Bowie and Mott the Hoople were huge for me, musically and intellectually. I really enjoyed listening, thx.

I was in the air force when this band arrived on the scene in the UK, I was into Led Zep at that time, like everyone else smiley
A breath of fresh air Mott the Hoople was, they did it first smiley
The band was found by Mr Bowie, playing some club at the time, not sure of the total history, I'm sure it's on the web somewhere.
Loved it from the first time I heard it and even now when it really comes on the radio I float back to those days.
A good rendition this, vox is very good, guitar work is great too.
Slower than the Hooples version, I've not heard Bowies version, can't help feeling he should have left well enough alone, Hooples version is the classic in the Uk anyway.
Great stuff mate. smiley

An exceptional and faithful rendition of this classic. Brilliantly performed. Don't know if you saw the program, but VH1 did a Top 100 Artists of All Time, recently, and Bowie was ranked 12th. 12th!? Not even in the top ten!!!? Behind Prince!? I don't dislike Prince, but... if it weren't for David Bowie (and the NY Dolls) there would be no Prince! Ok. Great track. One comment, though. I would like to hear more bottom end in the mix. I can't pick out the bass.

Hey there Matt and crew..............great job. I really connected with that one and as a lot have already said, I went trippin' straight back to my twisted youth the minute it started playing. There's a lot of heart and soul gone into that tune from what I'm hearing....I love it and it's oh so solid.

I could feel the road miles burning away underneath me while doing a road trip from Mount Gambier to Alice Springs in Australia all those years ago and we had MTH belting that out at max volume through the back of the van while we were snortin' all the red bull dust flying around in the car from the unsealed highway.

You guys really do put out some great sounds and I appreciate being kept in the loop Matt.
Keep up the good work and major congrats to all of you.

One of greatest songs ever produced. Bowie gave Mott their 15 minutes in the sun, and what a fabulous 15 minutes it was. I LOVE this song and I've always wanted to cover it, but lacked the both the sand and the choir...

Cracks me up--we had a UK producer interested in adding this cover to a Bowie tribute album (was Bowie's actual publishing house, too), but the project went idle too long and the interest waned. Was exciting for awhile to think it might make it onto something like that. It got noticed enough for consideration, though. That was fun. (Disappointing it didn't pan out, but hey--c'est la vie.)

Bummer for you guys. That would have been pretty cool. You should send the UK producer dude some flowers or something for trying (even though he probably messed it up for you). Hey, that's what I always do when I almost get on a Bowie tribute CD but, then it doesn't happen. Ha.
