Day 3 finds us back in 1973 once again with Aladdin Sane, David Bowie’s followup to his breakthrough album The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars. I admit that I had a difficult time choosing which Bowie record to feature first, so I went with the iconic lightning bolt cover. Aladdin Sane was the first album of his to really capture my attention, featuring The Jean Genie, Panic In Detroit, Watch That Man, and the title song, with the insane Mike Garson atonal piano solo. Mick Ronson played some killer hard rock ’70’s guitar all over the record, and Bowie’s voice was in magnificent form from beginning to end. I’m quite sure there will be several more David Bowie releases featured before the year is complete!
