Really a filler album by Bowie it has the classic SORROW, not that it's bad. I hated Let's Spend The Night Together cover on Alladin Sane. Was reluctant to even listen to this but it's surprisingly pretty good. Cool album cover is famous with model Twiggy

If you don't mind cover albums, it's worth getting. I myself am not a fan of this.

Brilliant! Much better than Aladdin Sane. Many of these covers are much better than the originals.

Bowie's covers of his 60's favourites, most people will have heard Sorrow, but its full of excellent covers of some really great tracks from the 60's, Pink Floyds See Emmily Play, The Who's Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere, & I Can't Explain, & IMO the best Track, Where Have All The Good Times Gone, - The Kinks
