The album that saved David Bowie's career
52 years ago this week, a 24-year-old David Bowie was getting ready to release the album that would save his career. Backed by a brand-new band, later to be called The Spiders from Mars, Bowie came up with an album that turned his situation from dire to Hunky Dory. It would go on to be considered one of the best of his entire stellar career. For this week's edition of the Chronicles of Rock, Randy recounts the tale of Hunky Dory by David Bowie.
