17 Years Ago Today- David Bowie Releases “Comeback” ‘Heathen’ LP (Watch “Cactus” Live ’02)

17 years ago today (6/11/02),  David Bowie released his 22nd studio album Heathen. It was considered a comeback for him in the US market; it was his highest charting album (number 14) since Tonight (1984), and earned some of his strongest reviews since Let’s Dance (1983) . Heathen marked the return of record producer Tony Visconti,who co-produced (with David Bowie himself) several of Bowie’s classic albums. The last album Visconti had co-produced was Scary Monsters in 1980. Heathen features a cover of “Cactus” by The Pixies- watch Bowie perform that track live in 2002.
