Ep61: 1977 - Low and Heroes and The Idiot and Lust For Life vs. Nothing! Absolutely Nothing But Sadness! or The Rampaging Rock Bottom of 1977

1977, ho hum, nothing much happening here at Bowie vs. Dylan podcast, just a random year of the comings and goings of David Bowie and/or Bob Dylan.  Let's see, what might be the rub?  Probably an album or two apiece from the two of them of varying quality and breadth, some number of singles from Bowie and maybe one from Dylan (if we're lucky, that is), a tour or something, certainly the ridiculous exercise of assigning points to their subjective pursuits coming out in the wash to basically a tie.  I mean, that's been the story, more or less, since this podcast's inception 61 episodes ago, what could possibly be the big difference this time around? (Puts on this very episode, vigorously checks notes while half-listening, becomes increasingly horrified) Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...there's no other way to say it, it's a bloodbath.  Although looking at the year (1977), I bet you can't tell which artist comes out on top!  You'll have to listen yourself to find out who!  Oh boy, who could it be?!?!?!? (Slowly starts laughing, changing uncomfortably over a matter of 30 seconds into maniacal guffawing, passes out, drools a little but clearly needs the time of relative rest and peace, on this edition of Bowie vs. Dylan.)
