I have to admit to being addicted to Youtube. You can find some of the most obscure videos in just about every category. I am a huge David Bowie fan and was amazed when I found a substantial number of videos from the mid- 1970’s – in my mind the most creative period of his career. Bowie was one of the first to experiment with the music video format. Here is a 1977 video of "Be My Wife" which is from the album Low; you can clearly see that Bowie was still dealing with heroine addiction at the time. The album was the second of three recordings that he did with Brian Eno in Berlin, Germany. Go to just about any point in his career and you find that Bowie was ten years ahead of the game.
