David Bowie Space Oddity: 40th Anniversary Edition on Limited Edition LP

2009 Remastered Version

First released on November 14, 1969, Space Oddity was originally titled David Bowie then subsequently Man of Words, Man of Music. The album was then re-titled Space Oddity when it was reissued in 1972, peaking at #16 on Billboard's Albums chart and #5 in the UK. Produced by Tony Visconti (except for the title track, which was produced by the late Gus Dudgeon), the album was a giant leap forward in songwriting for the musical chameleon and is considered by many to be the first truly essential David Bowie album.

Also notable for its collaborators, including session players Herbie Flowers, Tim Renwick, Terry Cox and Rick Wakeman, Space Oddity pays homage to all the influences of the London artistic scene and delves into psychedelic folk-rock, as well as prog, with its genre-defying template creating a blueprint of the musician who would become, over the next decade and more, 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
