Bowie’s eighth studio album, recorded following the disbanding of the Spiders from Mars, working (again) with producer Tony Visconti.

The recording band includes Tony Newman and Aynsley Dunbar on Drums, Herbie Flowers on Bass, Mike Garson on Keyboards, and Bowie (credited only by last name) playing guitar, saxes, moog, and mellotron.

The cover painting is by Dutch artist Guy Peeliaert (see Decadence, Dystopia & Dread: How Guy Peellaert Unleashed the Diamond Dogs) though RCA Victor airbrushed out the dog’s privates until EMI/Rykodisc restored them in the 1990 CD reissues.
