Jeff Rougvie is opening up his archives to give fans a fascinating inside look at the majesty, music, and vision of David Bowie. As Rykodisc’s VP of Special Projects, he worked directly with Bowie for over 10 years and on nearly 20 releases. What followed re-affirmed David Bowie’s genius for a new generation, and helped him rediscover his creative powers.
In 1989, Rykodisc, a tiny indie record label from  Salem, Massachusetts was hand-picked by David Bowie to curate his amazing body of work spanning 1969-1980. These recordings included classics like Space Oddity, Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust, Young Americans, Low, Heroes, and Scary Monsters. This partnership garnered a Grammy Award for their innovative Sound + Vision 3-album catalog introduction. Jeff Rougvie was the man behind the scenes in this amazing story.

"Despite Bowie's persona as an unearthly being, I got to know him as a real man, with real human challenges, who turned his battles into a body of work that made an indelible mark on our culture." ~Jeff Rougvie
