From the recording sessions for the "Absolute Beginners" soundtrack in the mid 80's, Bowie clowns around in the studio and does multiple takes imitating the singing styles of Bruce Springsteen, Bob Dylan, Loud Reed, Iggy Pop and a few others

This is great.

What the hell was he doing after Dylan? Tom Waits? Joe Cocker? Iggy was hilarious. I don’t know what he was going for after Iggy.

Breaking down David Bowie's 'Heroes' - Track-by-track
Producer Tony Visconti uses the original master tapes from sessions at Hansa Studio in Berlin to get to the heart of the title track from 'Heroes', one of David Bowie’s best-loved songs.

We hear the song built up by individual contributions, including those from guitarist Robert Fripp, Brian Eno's 'synthesiser in a briefcase' and of course David Bowie's powerful, harshly emotional vocal.

This film with Tony Visconti is an extended version of that on the BBC Four programme Music Moguls: Melody Makers. It closes with the iconic music video for 'Heroes', directed in 1977 by Stanley Dorfman.

thanks, Artemis, really interesting, love the Fripp, Eno guitar tone thing

speaking of Bowie, the new album has really, really grown on me in the past week. It really is a brillant album.
