The EMI Years


On these pages you will find the Post RCA 7” singles, there was a overlap for a couple of years starting with Under Pressure which David Bowie recorded with Queen. It was this single that led to David Bowie signing for EMI in 1983.

I’ve finished this section now, I’ve included a few singles that are not strictly ‘Bowie’ singles like ‘Pretty Pink Rose’ by Adrian Belew, I’ve also left others out that could be included like ‘Province’ by TV on the Radio. It’s not an easy call, but I think I’ve made the right decision
