Five Essential Albums
Garrett Borns, who records as BØRNS, has covered David Bowie's "Moonage Daydream" extensively in his live sets—a supple, tender take on that song from 'The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.' So when we asked Garrett if he'd compile his 'Five Essential David Bowie Albums' for us, we weren't surprised to find that album in his top five picks.

Producer, engineer and archivist Steve Rosenthal sadly had to close his 28-year-old recording studio, The Magic Shop, earlier in March, falling prey to voracious New York rents. David Bowie recorded his last two albums at The Magic Shop, 'The Next Day' and 'Blackstar.' We reached out to Steve and asked if he'd write about his Five Essential David Bowie Albums as we celebrate Bowie as our first FUV Essential artist.
