I don’t know who thought of the idea to pair David Bowie with Marc Bolan for a tribute album because in my world they are so wide apart that it ain’t even funny. But you gotta hand it to whoever it was that came up with the idea because they are equally both as important musicians as they are influencer. With 49 tracks and a running time of 3 hours and 31 minutes this is one hell of an album. It is hard for me to pick any sort of fave tracks simply because I have too poor knowledge of the originals. I am ashamed to say that I only know the more popular tracks from each artists repertoire. But I do like both artists. This is sort of tribute album you really need to sit back and listen intensely to, to get all the nuances and a to really appreciate the greatness of the artists. And that it is beautifully packaged doesn’t hurt either. Anders Ekdahl
