In case when reading this, you conclude that I am one of those dudes that just hates covers and people messing with ‘the original’, thought I would share this you all. Well worth a listen.
Amanda’s interpretations delivered here, because I read about it on Maria Popover’s Brain Pickings. Click through for a great interview with Amanda. And Maria’s own article separates out all of the tribute tracks.
this is the 9th post in my series of Bowie Tributes - enjoy
Remember a while back when Radiohead stunned the world and released an entire album – with no price ? Basically they left it to their fans to decide what to pay – pay a premium or ‘steal’ it – my paraphrasing of what good people will think – not their words.
Turns out they did very well with that approach – but of course the nay sayers suggested that of course Radiohead can afford to do that – they are Radiohead. At the time, I was on a bit more of a rant about the stupid music industry than I am these days. Not because the music industry has become more wise – or even that the problems have gone away – just time I guess. I am not part of the industry – simply a passionate watcher from the peanut gallery that involve himself with the professionals in the creative industry and help wherever I can.
