Five Years Box album 4: Ziggy Stardust

“Became the special man”

This week we’re looking at 1972’s The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars album, ahead of the release of the David Bowie (Five Years 1969 – 1973) box set (due September 25th).
In January 1972 it seems BW was the first photographer to capture for eternity the beautiful creature we know as Ziggy Stardust.
Whether that BW was Brian Ward with his iconic Ziggy Stardust album sleeve session in Heddon Street or Barrie Wentzell’s pictures for Melody Maker, we’re not quite sure.
Either way, the Melody Maker piece (cover date January 22nd) was the first glimpse of Ziggy as the album sleeve wasn't pictured anywhere for several months yet.
The popular British music weekly ran the first significant Bowie front page feature of the Ziggy era with their OH YOU PRETTY THING interview with Michael Watts. Two Wentzell shots were used, one on the cover and one inside accompanying the feature.
The session took place in the Gem Music offices, and, as you can see from our montage, the front cover picture was reversed, as indeed was the other picture inside.
The feature was possibly the first to mention the forthcoming album title, The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars, too. The album played in the background during the interview, even though Hunky Dory had only been released the previous month.
The following year in another MM interview, Bowie highlighted the significance of this interview, stating: “Yeah, it was Melody Maker that made me. It was that piece by Mick Watts.”
Ziggy Stardust wouldn't be released for another six months and in the meantime, there were many more sightings of Ziggy, including the first public performance of Ziggy with The Spiders (even if they weren’t billed as such yet), the following weekend at Aylesbury on January 29th.
Listen to Ziggy Stardust here.

“Hey that’s far out”

Yesterday we mentioned Brian Ward’s January 1972 session for the sleeve of The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars album in London’s Heddon Street.
Today’s picture is from a subsequent session with Ward which created the images used for the promotion of Ziggy Stardust and the Starman release. More of which, tomorrow.
Listen to Ziggy Stardust here now.

Five Years Box album 4: Ziggy Stardust

“Switch on the TV we may pick him up on...”

We’ve been talking about Brian Ward’s January 1972 Bowie photo session for the sleeve of The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars album in London’s Heddon Street and the studio shots created by Ward for the promotion of Ziggy Stardust and the Starman release.
It seems the first use of a picture from this session was for an interview feature by Danny Holloway in NME dated Jan 29th, 1972. It was the same image as used for the Starman single sleeve three months later.
Though the album title was mentioned in the Holloway article, there was not much more said about it, aside from this brief synopsis of the concept...

    “As we sat in the living room of the huge Victorian house he shares, David played the new Biff Rose album, followed by tapes of his next – titled “The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars.” It`s about the adventures and eventual break-up of a pop group. Ziggy Stardust is the lead singer and The Spiders From Mars are his back-up group (David is trying to persuade his group to call themselves the Spiders.)”

The music press adverts for Starman in April were still plugging Hunky Dory, with no hint of the upcoming Ziggy album whatsoever.
Released on April 28th, Starman gave fans their first Bowie picture sleeve in the UK and two tunes from Ziggy Stardust ahead of the album’s release. The B-side was Suffragette City.
The single finally scraped into the Top 50 UK singles chart two months after its release and after a slow accent it reached the Top Ten, no doubt helped by this ...among other things.

Listen to Ziggy Stardust here now.

Five Years Box album 4: Ziggy Stardust

“Don't think you knew you were in this song...”

The BBC were instrumental in promoting Bowie in the run up to the release of The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars.
From January 1972 right up to the release of the album, aside from catching Bowie live, the only way you were likely to hear any of the Ziggy material being performed would have been via various BBC radio sessions.
This culminated with Starman on the BBC’s Top Of The Pops (TOTPs) as we mentioned yesterday.
But before that, in February 1972, the very first sighting of Ziggy and The Spiders on TV was via the BBC’s The Old Grey Whistle Test (TOGWT). TOGWT was a late night TV show with a more ‘serious’ adult audience, but it didn’t have the reach of TOTPs.
Bowie and the band recorded Queen Bitch, Oh! You Pretty Things and Five Years, though OYPT wasn’t shown till many years later. So the very first televised Ziggy song was an emotional rendition of Five Years with Mick Ronson in less familiar role of pianist. You can watch it here.

Listen to Ziggy Stardust here now.

Five Years Box album 4: Ziggy Stardust

“I could play the wild mutation as a rock & roll star”

In the run up to the release of The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars, the boundaries between David Bowie and Ziggy Stardust became more blurred.
This was in no small part due to the advertising campaign which proclaimed: “David Bowie is Ziggy Stardust!”
The creation of a cartoon Ziggy Stardust, with more than a passing resemblance to Bowie (drawn by David’s friend George Underwood), also served to add another layer of mystery to the whole concept of who and what Ziggy was.
As you can see from our montage, this cartoon image was reproduced for various posters, press adverts and even skin transfers...not to mention a prototype Ziggy Stardust doll.
One thing that was definitely for real though, was the incredible accompanying musical soundtrack to the tale of Ziggy Stardust.

Five Years Box - Album 5: Santa Monica

“And he was alright, the band was altogether”

Following on from last week’s focus on the Ziggy Stardust album, this week we’re looking at, and listening to, the live album that sprang from the first American tour in the autumn/fall of 1972 in support of Ziggy Stardust.
October 20 1972 was the first of two dates at the Civic Auditorium, in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, California. The show was broadcast live by local station KMET-FM, and quickly became the first and one of the most popular live Bowie bootlegs of all time.
Santa Monica was released officially by EMI thirty six years later in 2008 as Live Santa Monica ’72.
It’s a wonderful snapshot of a slightly nervous but confident Bowie as Ziggy Stardust, with a well-honed Spiders From Mars augmented by brilliant new boy, Mike Garson.
If you’ve not heard it before, you’re in for a real treat.

Five Years get five stars in Q magazine

“We've got five stars, what a surprise...”

In the latest issue of Q Magazine (http://smarturl.it/Qoct2015), David Quantick has given the David Bowie (Five Years 1969 – 1973) box set top marks.

Here’s an edited excerpt from his review with a bit from both the intro and the conclusion.

+ - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - +

The past, in David Bowie's case, is not so much a foreign country as an entire solar system of extraordinary planets...the albums Bowie made were each a genre in themselves, blueprints for a career and as different as Venus from Mercury.

Here they are, 10 albums – including two lives, a double rarities collection and one covers disc – in a boxed set, with a booklet introduced by Ray Davies and a general sense of wonder that this creative outpouring, this insane variety of different ideas, sounds and visions, took place roughly in the same length of time of that, say, Mumford & Sons have managed to hesitantly carve out three albums, one of which is different because it doesn't have banjos on it.

These 10 albums are all brilliant...and it's almost extraordinary to realise that this race to space would actually be exceeded, creatively, by the hyperdrive of the next five years.

+ - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - +

And who are we to disagree with that?

Meanwhile, the faint image in the background of our montage was taken of the Warner Music Group building in Burbank, Los Angeles. Hard to get a scale of the Five Years hoarding they are proudly displaying, but you wouldn’t get it through your front door!

Four Stars for Five Years box in MOJO

“MOJO the lion, yeah yeah”

Jim Irvin reviews the David Bowie (Five Years 1969 – 1973) box set in the new issue of MOJO (http://smarturl.it/MOJOoct2015), which also has a full page advert for the September 25 release.
The magazine has awarded the set 4 out of 5 stars and we’ll leave you with Mr Irvin’s conclusion to the piece.

    “In these five years he was pouring out everything he had, pop music that was funny, sexy, chilling and other things that others weren't attempting. It hasn't all aged well, but that antic spirit – the roll-up, here-you-go-Mrs, arts-lab hooligan with a huge left hemisphere – makes Bowie uniquely himself while being many other things, the creator of a body of work no one else has, or will, ever come close to.”

“Then we were Ziggy’s band”

Another big thumbs up for the David Bowie (Five Years 1969 – 1973) box set in the new issue of UNCUT.
There's a nine out of ten review of the release by Bud Scoppa, not to mention a rather tasty double page picture spread of the boy Ziggy and his gang in a short piece about the box contents by Michael Bonner.
The October issue of UNCUT is available in all the usual formats and places now.

Five Years Box - album 6: Ziggy Stardust Motion Picture

“For in front of that door, there is...Me!, Me!, Me!...”

Like last week’s album, Live Santa Monica ’72, David Bowie’s final Ziggy show at Hammersmith Odeon on July 3rd, 1973, was also one of the more popular live Bowie bootlegs before it was picked up officially.

But unlike Live Santa Monica ’72 (which took thirty six years to eventually be released by EMI), Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders From Mars - The Motion Picture Soundtrack, was first issued ten years after the event in tandem with the film in 1983.

Speaking of the film, check out this moving performance of My Death over on the David Bowie YouTube channel now: https://youtu.be/nKmBg-jOYUQ
