The Diamond Dogs - Nothing Else mp3 album
Diamond Dogs" is a 1974 single by David Bowie, the title track of the album of the same name. The lyric introduces the listener to Bowie’s latest persona and his environment; Halloween Jack dwells on top of an abandoned skyscraper ("Manhattan Chase", . One Chase Manhattan Plaza) in a post-apocalyptic Manhattan. The guitar sound is heavily influenced by The Rolling Stones, and signalled Bowie moving away from glam rock and closer to a proto-punk Stooges-influenced sound.
The Diamond Dogs album was released 43 years ago today! This song was from Young Americans but we did it on the Diamond Dogs tour oy did David sing it well! . In a not-very-surprising move, Parlophone will issue the Record Store Day David Bowie live album. The Year of the Diamond Dogs.
Diamond Dogs suffers precisely because of this - he doesn't know how to move forward. Originally conceived as a concept album based on George Orwell's 1984, Diamond Dogs evolved into another one of Bowie's paranoid future nightmares. Throughout the album, there are hints that he's tired of the Ziggy formula, particularly in the disco underpinning of "Candidate" and his cut-and-paste lyrics. However, it's not enough to make Diamond Dogs a step forward, and without Mick Ronson to lead the band, the rockers are too stiff to make an impact

The Diamond Dogs are a group of dog creatures who first appear as the antagonists of the episode A Dog and Pony Show, led by the three dogs Rover, Fido, and Spot. After they see Rarity using her gem-finding spell, they kidnap her and force her to find gems for them. They are not particularly smart, allowing Rarity to trick them with ease
Diamond Dogs (live, 2004). They'd taken over this barren city, this city that was falling apart. They'd been able to break into windows of jewelers and things, so they'd dressed themselves up in furs and diamonds. In the year of the scavenger: Diamond Dogs is made partly out of stolen goods. It opens with applause lifted from the Faces’ live album Coast to Coast (you can hear Rod Stewart yell hey just as the guitar riffs kick in), and towards the end there’s a blatant rip of Bobby Keyes’ saxophone line on the Stones’ Brown Sugar. Bowie’s main guitar line might well be a rewrite of the Stones’ It’s Only Rock ‘n Roll (But I Like It), which was born out of a jam session that Bowie took part in.
After killing Ziggy on the last concert of the Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars era, and after saying goodbye to his musicians (Mick Ronson, Trevor Bolder and Mick Woodmansey), Bowie found himself in a paradigm where he was alone, without musicians. But an idea appeared: he wanted to do a 1984 musical. So he talked with George Orwell’s widow, Sonia Orwell, and asked her about the rights of the novel. Sonia refused to give him the rights. So Diamond Dogs had to became another kind of creature
Diamond Dogs is a music studio album recording by DAVID BOWIE (Prog Related/Progressive Rock) released in 1974 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. A very good album with a few rough patches, David Bowie's Diamond Dogs is a nice poppy diversion from all the constant Prog, while also having enough proggy, experimental passages itself to make sure things stay interesting. A good album, but won't appeal to everybody, and certainly not to every Prog fan.
