Track One Music Club
Track One Music Club was launched in January 2017 as a spin-off of Chapter One Book Group.
The current schedule can be viewed below:
The Man Who Sold the World
In his third album, Bowie departed from the largely acoustic stylings of his sophomore effort and explored hard rock and heavy metal. While David Bowie has been regarded by many as the first Bowie album proper, The Man Who Sold the World has been described as the true start of Bowie’s decades-long exploration of music. Noted for its sonic heaviness, the album delves into dark, sometimes disturbing subject matter including insanity, gun-toting assassins, an omniscient computer, Lovecraftian Elder Gods and a sexual encounter in the depths of Hell with a being who may be God, the Devil or something else altogether. Despite being described by one publication as “rather hysterical”, The Man Who Sold the World was a critical and commercial success and has been credited with inspiring the goth rock, dark wave and science fiction elements that continue to be found in rock music to this day.
Blizzard of Ozz
The Prince of Darkness might have still been smarting after being fired from Black Sabbath in 1979, but his release of Blizzard of Ozz showed that he still had plenty of life left in him. Despite some controversy surrounding the album, most notably its single “Suicide Solution”, Blizzard of Ozz was both a critical and commercial success and cemented Ozzy Osbourne as a solo talent. Hailed by Rolling Stone as one of the greatest metal albums of all time, the album has sold over six million copies worldwide since its release in 1980.
