Diamond Dogs 1974

Though this introduced us to new character Halloween Jack, Ziggy’s influence was still evident in this glam-heavy concept album based on George Orwell’s novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. Bowie wanted to make a stage version of the book and had started work on it, but was denied the rights by Orwell’s estate. Thus, songs already written were used for this album, mostly morphing into the second side of 1984. Produced by Bowie alone, the overall result was one of a glam, ‘Big Brother’-themed dystopia.
