David Bowie David Bowie AKA Space Oddity on 180g Vinyl LP

David Bowie's "Real" Debut: Remastered 180g Vinyl LP of 1969's David Bowie AKA Space Oddity Marks Beginning of Icon's Constant Creative Reinvention

Originally titled David Bowie, then subsequently Man of Words, Man of Music, the album that became widely known as Space Oddity was reissued under that name again in 1972, peaking at #16 on Billboard's Albums chart and #5 in the UK. Produced by Tony Visconti (except for the title track, produced by Gus Dudgeon), the album represents a giant leap forward in Bowie's songwriting and is the first truly essential Bowie album.

Equally notable for its collaborators, including session players Herbie Flowers, Tim Renwick, Terry Cox, and Rick Wakeman, Space Oddity pays homage to the influences of the then-burgeoning London artistic scene and delves into psychedelic folk-rock, and prog. Its genre-defying template created a blueprint of the musician who would become, over the next decade, one of the world's most innovative and inimitable artists.

"As was the case with Miles Davis in jazz, Bowie has come not just to represent his innovations but to symbolize modern rock as an idiom in which literacy, art, fashion, style, sexual exploration and social commentary can be rolled into one." - Rolling Stone
