Articles about David Bowie

Articles about his studio albums:

Albums not made, but produced by Bowie:

  • Raw Power by The Stooges: A 1973 album where he did the mixing.
  • Transformer by Lou Reed: A 1972 album that Bowie co-produced and performed backing vocals on.
  • The Idiot by Iggy Pop: A 1977 album which he produced, added musical instrumentations to and co-wrote some of the songs, and performs backing vocals. Is generally seen as a prelude to the Berlin Trilogy, given the similarity in production style, Bowie's heavy involvement that ended up shaping it into one of his albums in all but name, and the fact that the opening track, "Sister Midnight", was written into Bowie's own "Red Money" on Lodger in 1979.
  • Lust for Life by Iggy Pop: A 1977 album which he produced, co-wrote, and added musical instrumentation and backing vocals to. Bowie would later cover "Neighborhood Threat" and "Tonight" on Tonight in 1984.
