One of the reasons his music is so excellent is due to the fact that he is always willing to try new things. One of his most interesting experiments came about in 1973: Pin-Ups. This was an album consisting mostly of sixties pop-rock covers - NO Bowie originals were featured.
David Bowie has always been a man to try new things in the musical world, and it serves him well most of the time. This album is no exception. This an excellent album, through and through, despite the lack of Bowie originals.
Interestingly, Bowie doesn't cover any Beatles or Dave Clark Five tunes on this album, but what he does cover is excellent.
For instance, we get a cover of the Who classic I Can't Explain, which is a bit slower and more melodic than the original. Bowie's new take on the song is great, even if the style differs drastically of that from the original.
See Emily Play is a composition by Syd Barrett (of Pink Floyd fame), and Bowie does this song well, too. But, of course, my personal favorite song featued here would have to be the Easy Beats cover, Friday On My Mind. Bowie takes an old favorite and breathes new life into it!
Through and through this is a very good album, even if it's very different from what you're used to hearing from Mr. Bowie.
No Bowie die-hard should overlook this one.

The muse holding the giant magic wand is Amanda Lear. 1973.
Nice to see the beautiful Amanda Lear as a Goddess here, and the Lindsay Kemp troupe I think. One of my favorites, just so stylish...
Amanda Lear of course was very close to Salvador Dali she wrote the book 'Dali and Me', and then Bowie, Bryan Ferry etc.
A cabaret artist, 60's fashion model, 70's Eurodisco singer to great acclaim, and now artist/actress and TV talk show host. Dali paid for her sex change in Casablanca.
