For my first AotW selection, I'll be playing David Bowie's The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. I have the original vinyl that I'd like to play, but I need to make sure we can get through it without putting a penny on the needle - I've not treated this original pressing very well over the years. I'll have a digital version as well, just in case.
One can read all about the album on Wikipedia and I'm not going to go into a ton of detail about the origin, the history or any of those details. I chose the album because it was really the first album I can remember playing as an album - wearing headphones and listening from start to finish. And then doing it again. I have my favorite songs on the album, to be sure, but it's really the album as a whole that is a work of art.
