Pin Ups does not seem to get muck of a mention on these pages yet it represents a pivotal album between
Ziggy and his future alter egos.

Bowie sonic interpretation of songs from the 60's back in 1973 surely deserves some loving. There must
be plenty of out takes that could be used beyond Growing Up which latterly was put on the Dianond Dogs
Bonus and Amsterdam.

I enjoy it very much. The Pin Ups 'White Light White Heat' ended up on Ronno's Play Don't Worry.

Some say Pin Ups is a worse album than Reality.

Yes really!

Bought it when it came out - not a duff track on it - loved it and played it to death.

It is a great album. Far too many knock it.

There was talk of a Pin Ups 2 in the late 70's yes?

I think he used Pins Ups to try out new vocal techniques. It's around this time his he used the deeper voice. As heard on Sorrow.

That's a good point ,because Bowie's voice is really all over the place sonically speaking and before Diamond Dogs which I always thought was Bowie's first experimental vocal after Ziggy ?

I agree all Bowie's little vocal nuances are on display on Pinups ,I'd guess he always thought of Pinups as throwaway stuff and whilst possibly having fun he also felt he could afford to try different vocal techniques too ?

The chemistry between Bowie and Ronson is superlative on Pinups !

pin ups has balls it really rocks.
yeah the best of ronno and the drumming is sublime on this album.
bowie's vocals have an experimental feel about them but are amongst his best i feel.
why sorrow was chose as the lead single i'm not sure although a top 3 hit i feel theres a lot better on there which needs to be heard.
see emily play,here comes the night,friday on my mind especially are far superior.

Yeah the album just gels beautifully ,I'd guess the lack of singles would be because he didn't want to be seen as a plagiarist too much ?

I prefer to think of Toy as a Pin Ups 2 rather than Tonight.

You should get it andy.

Toy is of a similar feel to Pin Ups but at the same time is an advancement on the concept of pin Ups as well.
