Early David Bowie Previously-Unreleased Song Goes Online

(Classic Rock) A previously-unreleased David Bowie track that was recorded in 1970 has been made available for the first time. To Be Love is being streamed by its writer and producer Ron de Strulle as a tribute to the icon, who died in January after a cancer battle. It can be heard and downloaded via mindbodynetwork.com.

It was the first song Bowie recorded during his first trip to the United States, after he'd been offered the opportunity of 24-hour studio access for two weeks.

Ron de Strulle, who worked with impresario Tom Ayers and Frank Zappa drummer Aynsley Dunbar at the time, tells the Huffington Post: "My first impression of David was that he was warm, open, friendly, and not looking for star treatment like most of the other artists who came to RR Studios.

"He was interested in the production process and excited about anything creative. He couldn't get over the way we could produce loop delays and reverberation plays.

"David could pick up an instrument and play anything. He'd say, 'I never played this instrument before' - then he'd cut loose and play. Pure genius." Read more here.
