In 1983, Bowie released his 15th studio album “Let’s Dance”, which blended the dance sensibilities of producer Nile Rodgers with blues guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan. The single and album went to number one around the world - and the accompanying “Serious Moonlight” world tour played to record-breaking audiences, establishing him as a mainstream international star.
30 years after the release of the album Absolute Radio pays tribute to “Let’s Dance” with a documentary that explores this pop masterpiece. An album that remains Bowie’s biggest and fastest selling album.
Music journalist Mark Sutherland and noted Bowie author David Buckley provide track-by-track analysis, alongside original interviews and archival recordings of Bowie in '83. Other contributors include the album's engineer Bob Clearmountain, backing singer Frank Simms, producer Pete Waterman, Duran Duran's John Taylor, and Peter Godwin from Metro.
