Back in the spring of 1977 I bought this album not suspecting just how much Bowie had changed his style of music, again. I put the needle on the turntable and when the opening chords of Speed of Life began playing my first thought was, Wow! I remained seated by the record player through the entire two sides of this album and have loved this disc ever since. This was totally different from any of his previous works and it was the first recording of what was to become known as Bowie's Berlin Trilogy.

I was fourteen years old when Tapestry was released in 1971. It was my first year of high school, life seemed bigger to me than it ever had, and such musicians as: Cat Stevens, Three Dog Night, James Taylor and Carole King were in the background singing the soundtrack of my life. I am now 53 years old and I still enjoy this CD immensely. Not only does it bring back really great memories of my youth, but it is just a great CD. From the opening piano chords of I Feel The Earth Move, to the hits It's Too Late and Smackwater Jack, to her slowed down versions Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow and You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman, King has proven this soft rock masterpiece has stood the test… Read more

Get out your Go-Go Boots, mini skirts, paisley shirts and bell bottoms, this stack of twenty groovy tunes is a fun additon to any party! When I played it at a party I recently hosted, absolutely everybody wanted to know where they might get a copy of it. Some very interesting takes on some familiar songs on this recording. Particulalry listen for Dieter Zimmermann and his pop orchestra's take on Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love, and Inga's German language version of Sonny and Cher's The Beat Goes On. Although some would consider this series cheesy, I say cheese is good and this entire series is a whole lot of fun. Get it. It will put a smile on your face.
