Produced by Bowie and Ken Scott, Ziggy… is probably Bowie’s most lauded record. A huge commercial success, it frequently appears in ‘Best Album’ lists and is cited by many as a significant influence. Sparkling with the romance of pop stardom – outrage, drugs, sexual ambiguity and unashamed glamour – it is a concept album telling the tale of a fictional pop-star and his band. Its victory was compounded by an infamous performance of its fourth track, Starman, on the UK’s Top Of The Pops where – all spiky orange hair, multi-coloured jumpsuit and bright eye make-up – Bowie merrily camped it up with his arm draped over Spiders’ guitarist Mick Ronson.
