Buddha Of Suburbia Finally Released

Buddha Of SuburbiaWell, it looks like someone finally had the good sense to re-release one of David Bowie’s lost masterpieces, The Buddha Of Suburbia. Recorded and released in 1993, it is the soundtrack to the mini-series based on Hanif Kureishie’s coming out, coming of age novel of the same name, set in middle class England. Originally released only in Europe, it’s proved to be both illusive and costly for Bowie afficianados (I paid over $50 on eBay for a copy) to track down and enjoy. I first heard it in 1996 in New Mexico and was blown away. Bowie has always had a fetish for flashy guitarists such as Mick Ronson, Carlos Alomar, Adrian Belew, and Reeves Gabrels, on “Buddha” he employs a young and cocky, Lenny Kravitz to provide the fiery fretwork. Amazon is taking pre-orders for the release, which will be available to be shipped on October 2nd.
