David Bowie‘s second and final album with his late 80s group Tin Machine is reissued on limited edition 180g crystal clear & turquoise vinyl. Originally released by Victory Music in 1991, Tin Machine II is the second and final studio album by Tin Machine. After this album and the supporting tour, frontman David Bowie resumed his solo career. Tin Machine II’s reputation has only increased over the years. Uncut magazine placed the album on their list of 50 Great Lost Albums (their list of great albums not currently available for purchase), calling the album “extraordinary”.

The band features Tony and Hunt Sales on bass and drums and Reeves Gabrels on guitar. 

As with all Bowie albums, there are plenty of strong tracks here to make this a must-have. Opening track “Baby Universal” is pure Bowie. He re-recorded this track in 1996 for his 1997 album “Earthling“, but the track was not released on the album. It was eventually released in 2020 on the Bowie EP “Is It Any Wonder?“. Both the first and second singles, “You Belong In Rock ‘n Roll” and “Baby Universal” both charted well, but it was “One Shot” that became the hit single of the album and peaked at #3 on the US charts.

The album’s cover (which was censored for its original USA release) was created by Edward Bell, who had previously worked with Bowie on creating the artwork for Scary Monsters.

The second album features the hit single “You Belong In Rock ‘n’ Roll” as well as “One Shot” and “Baby Universal”.

This is released on 8th April 2022 via Music on Vinyl
