Hunky Dory was released in the summer of 1971 on RCA Records, and it features such songs as "Quicksand," "Life on Mars" and "Changes," all of which Bowie write himself.
Aladdin Sane was Bowie's sixth studio album, which was released two years later on RCA Records (1973). It included such tracks as "Watch That Man," "Panic in Detroit," "Time," as well as "Let's Spend The Night Together," where he collaborated with Mick Jagger and Keith Richards of The Rolling Stones.
His Diamond Dogs album had elements of glam rock and it consisted of such singles as "Rebel Rebel," the title track "Diamond Dogs" and "1984."
With his cover album Pin Ups, Bowie proved that he could take any other artist's song, twist it and turn it into his own. He was able to breathe new life into Pink Floyd's "See Emily Play," as well as The Who's "I Can't Explain" and their hit "Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere."
Let's Dance is Bowie's most successful album to date, and one of his finest musical works, featuring the title track, "Modern Love" and "Without You."
