I think everyone under 65 heard Bowie's first, didn't they?

Yeah but you can HEAR Sonny on it. Well, unless she was a ventriloquist or something.

They're both such godawful singers. I don't want to know.

No, the Contours one. I thought that was the original.

Is there a caveman version going back farther?

To this day, I'm pretty sure the only version of "Diamonds and Rust" I've heard is the Judas Priest version.

Same for me. I might have heard the original 'Shapes of Things' first.


Almost the opposite for me, but I didn't hear 'Pin Ups' for a long time. When I was buying Bowie albums that was regarded as very much bottom of the pile.

:lol:

Yeah, not a big fan of the original either. Not a big fan of Baez in general, to be honest.

Same for me , I’d never heard it until I bought the Five Years box set from a few years ago. It confirmed what I’d always suspected that it was one of his least essential albums.

Although I probably use The Sonics' version as my reference now.
