And so another era in the musical sojourn of David Bowie begins with this 1977 album. Call it the Berlin era, marking the artist's decision to relocate to the German capital. Low mixed in many new ingredients, including a cut-and-paste songwriting style, ambient sounds, uncommon instruments like the chamberlain and new collaborators, notably former Roxy Music man Brian Eno. "Sound and Vision" bops along on an upbeat tempo, chords and rhythm. Synthesizer waves rush in and Bowie's breathier vocal performance stays afloat on that, while "Breaking Glass" aligns the artist with the Talking Heads-style art bands, rather than the punks of the age. Once again Bowie defied expectations with this record, a point this enhanced and remastered version makes very clear.

Editorial Notes

This is an enhanced audio CD which contains regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files. Personnel: David Bowie (vocals, guitar, cello, harmonica, saxophone, piano, Chamberlin, synthesizers, pump bass, percussion, tapes, ambient sounds); Iggy Pop, Mary Visconti (vocals); Brian Eno (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Carlos Alomar, Ricky Gardener (guitar); Edward Meyers (cello); Roy Young (piano, organ); Peter, Paul (piano, Arp synthesizer); George Murray (bass); Dennis Davis (percussion). The first (Heroes and Lodger would follow) of Bowie's three Berlin albums. Living there as a semi-recluse for three years, he worked with Svengali/producer Brian Eno and the results of their collaborations helped change the face of the European mainstream. Artists such as Gary Numan, Ultravox and OMD were indebted to the sound Bowie had created with the synthesizer to build a somewhat terse wall of sound. Critically acclaimed, but a relative commercial failure, apart from the surprise `Sound And Vision' hit single, it remains as a pertinent reminder of Bowie's ability to surprise and enlighten.
