David Bowie – Blackstar

Blackstar-copy

Better late than never – here comes my top-20 for 2016 – in no particular order so far…

David Bowie – Blackstar.  Considering Bowie’s immeasurable talent, contributions and influence on rock ‘n’ roll I imagine I’d probably put this album at the top of my annual list anyway.  But it just so happens that this record belongs in this spot regardless of the circumstances.

The first time I heard this album I was making a nighttime drive from San Diego to Phoenix.  I had resisted listening to previews of the record so I could take it in all at once the first time I heard it. I had nothing else to do but keep my car pointed straight and listen to this magnificent record unfold.  Man, if we could all pick our own way to “shuffle off this mortal coil” this is the way to do it.
