Like many of my generation, my introduction to David Bowie was in the summer of 1983 with the Let’s Dance album.
That album is simply iconic 80s. What more can be said about the album on which China Girl, Modern Love and the title track can be found on the same side?
It would take years for me to realize an edited Cat People (Putting Out Fire) is on the second side of the vinyl.
During one of my recent trips to New York for CMJ, I went crate digging in a few Lower East Side record stores and purchased another copy of Let’s Dance to replace the one I gave away.
