David Bowie in 2002

Low is the 11th studio album by the English musician David Bowie, released on 14 January 1977 by RCA Records. Recording sessions began at Hérouville‘s Château d’Hérouville in September 1976 and ended in October at Hansa Studios in West Berlin. The cover artwork, a profile of Bowie from the film The Man Who Fell to Earth (1976), was intended as a visual pun, meaning “low profile”. RCA refused to issue Low for three months, fearing it would be a commercial failure. Upon release, it divided critical opinion and received little promotion from either RCA or Bowie. Nevertheless, the album reached number two on the UK Albums Chart and number eleven on the US Billboard Top LPs & Tape chart. Two singles were released: “Sound and Vision“, which peaked at number three on the UK Singles Chart, and “Be My Wife“. In later decades, critics have rated Low one of Bowie’s best works, and it has appeared on several lists of the greatest albums of all time. (Full article…)
