Notes: David Bowie’s divorce from his wife Angela became final on February 8th 1980 and the following week he was in New York starting work on Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps),the first album after the “Berlin Triology.” Working with producer Tony Visconti and the Alomar/Davis/Murry backing band, they laid down instrumental tracks for the songs that would appear on the album for two and a half weeks. Only “It’s No Game (No. 2)” would be completed. Two months later they would reconvene at Good Earth Studios in London to complete the album. Mixing would be finished by April and the album would be released on September 12th. The album would reach #1 in the UK and climb as high as #12 in the US. It received rave reviews when first released and has since been used as a benchmark.
The liner notes point out : “The album was very well received, peaking at No. 1 in the United Kingdom with U.K. music magazine Melody Maker called it ‘an eerily impressive stride into the ’80s’ and Billboard reported that it ’should be the most accessible and commercially successful Bowie LP in years.’ Another magazine, Record Mirror, going so far as to laud it with seven stars out of five!”.
Fresh From Divorce collects together relevant documents surrounding the creation of the album including alternate versions and demos. And since this was during Bowie’s longest hiatus from live performance (after the Stage tour in 1978 he wouldn’t tour again until 1983), included are two television appearances which are rare live outings from this period

Bowie really went through a rejuvenation period with the release of Scary Monsters. I liked the previous album `Lodger` with Brian Eno.
Robert Fripp deserves credit for his innovations on `Scary Monters` as well.

This blog is merely an index with public links for audio recordings of independent origin (ROIO) which have not been officially released. No audio or video content is hosted here. We only provide meta information files for the ROIOs. If you're an artist (or a legal representative of an artist or its estate) and you don't want your ROIOs shared on this blog for FREE among your fans, you may opt out any time by sending e-mail to the site admin. We will then put you in our list of not allowed artists. This will halt all sharing of your ROIOs in this blog within minutes. BTW, the ROIOs exist, you can't make them vanish. So, why not let your fans get them for free from one another instead of having to purchase them from commercial bootleggers on auction sites?
