“Listening to ‘Bowie Songs One’ on headphones for the first time. Wow! To say I have been blown away is an understatement. Your arrangements and piano playing are exquisite. The song selection and choice of singers is impeccable. It makes you realise what great songs they are. Bowie would have loved this album. Thanks for creating it, Clifford.” David S.
Moving forward, I am already working on gathering more singers for Bowie Songs Two.
