David Bowie: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars (RCA)

Jon Tiven, Phonograph Record, July 1972

Ziggy Stardust is the Aftermath of the Seventies, where every track is a hit and no fillers; what’s more Bowie is with his band and rocking at the seams of his kelly green jump-suit all the way down to his screwed down hairdo.
