Pinups 3

A variety of other artists' songs covered by Bowie

A nice attempt at the artwork, trying to use themes from Pinups but the quality of the original pictures used is far from ideal.  The subtitle is 'Raise Arms'.  Typical of this series, there are mistakes on the sleeve.  These tracks are all available elswewhere.  All in all a forgettable recording - for the completists among us!

I am over-critical because it is a pirate recording as well as a bootleg.  To add further insult to injury, it is a cheap CDR designed to dupe the unsuspecting Bowie collector into thinking they have a silver CD.  This practise is particularly distasteful.

It Ain't Easy

Sleeve notes originally recorded by the Kinks, which is completely false.  The original songwriter is Ron Davies, not Ray Davies (of the Kinks).  In 1973, a Frenchman named Alain Kan performed a cover of It Ain't Easy in French (called appropriately Pas si facile). Apparently, Kan never released another song.  This version is from John Peel's Sunday Concert, Paris Cinema Studios, London, UK on 5 June 1971.
