The Washington Post Acclaims Moonage Daydream As A 'masterpiece'.

21 Jun 2002

The Washington Post has given our new book by David Bowie and Mick Rock the very highest of praise. Writer Richard Harrington as follows: 'another limited edition masterpiece from England's Genesis Publications... draws from 6,000 images shot by Rock during Ziggy's 18-month reign on earth. It also features a 15,000-word text by Bowie, who's hardly ever gone on record -- certainly not at such length and with so much detail -- about Ziggy and the glam era.'

David Bowie is certainly in the news at the moment. As well as launching Moonage Daydream, he released (to strong reviews) a new studio album titled Heathen on 10 June, he is curating the current Meltdown festival of music and arts in London and he seems ever-present in the press. Meanwhile on 8 July (16 July in USA) EMI will be issuing a special 30th anniversary edition of the Ziggy Stardust album, a 2-CD collectors' package featuring the original album on CD1, and 12 tracks associated with the Ziggy album on CD2, including a previously unreleased mix of the song 'Moonage Daydream'.
