2017 EU reissue oon 180g LP=featuring the title track and single 'Rebel Rebel', 1974's Diamond Dogs was conceptually built off of George Orwell's dystopian classic 1984, brimming with tension and angst which stood in stark contrast to the disco music that was beginning to crowd the airwaves. It also displayed hints of Bowie's interest in the music he heard in America. However, authentic soul with a unique UK perspective meant this was far from being a homage.

Driven by an entirely deeper dynamic than most pop artists, David Bowie inhabited a very special world of extraordinary sounds and endless vision. Unwilling to stay on the treadmill of rock legend and avoiding the descent into ever demeaning and decreasing circles of cliché Bowie continually evolved blurring genres and identities while remaining artistically radical and relevant throughout his trailblazing career.

Bowie's first album of original material since killing off Ziggy Stardust, 1974's Diamond Dogs was conceptually built off of George Orwell's dystopian classic 1984, brimming with tension and angst which stood in stark contrast to the disco music that was beginning to crowd the airwaves. It also displayed hints of Bowie's interest in the music he heard in America. However, authentic soul with a unique UK perspective meant this was far from being a homage.

Propelled by the signature single "Rebel Rebel," Diamond Dogs hit the No. 1 spot in the U.K. and served as Bowie's big breakthrough in the U.S. where it climbed into the Top 5.
