Great single... and my favourite bowie album - the Fripp is all over it too!! Strangely, nobody I mention it to nowadays ever seems to remember UP THE HILL BACKWARDS being issued as a single and played on the radio a lot ( although 32 was a miserable chart position for a Bowie single which might explain it!! )

Cool, I love It's No Game 1 and the title track. Would be interested to hear others' favourite Bowie albums. Mine is Outside from '95 - I am one of those odd individuals who thinks some of his recent stuff is even better than his seventies. CN
