David Bowie Tonight 1984

Tonight is David Bowie’s thirteenth studio album and third entry into the 1980s.

Spawning three UK singles : Blue Jean /Tonight/Loving The Alien , it reached number one in the official album charts.

A ‘rushed’ album according to David as writing on tour was really not an ideal option and was received with critical reception.

I’ve grown to love this album over the years with the highlight for me being the Iggy Pop duet finale ‘Dancing With The Big Boys’.

Released on LP/cassette and later CD formats.
