David Bowie - Space Oddity b/w Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud (7" - Picture Disc: 40th Anniversary Edition)

$17.99

Early bands David Robert Jones played with – The Kon-Rads, The King Bees, the Mannish Boys and the Lower Third – provided him with an introduction into the showy world of pop and mod, and by 1966 he was David Bowie, with long hair and aspirations of stardom rustling about his head. Kenneth Pitt signed on as his manager, and his career began with a handful of mostly forgotten singles but a head full of ideas.

It was not until 1969 that the splash onto the charts would begin, with the legendary Space Oddity (which peaked at No. 5 in the UK). Amidst his musical wanderings in the late 60s, he experimented with mixed media, cinema, mime, Tibetan Buddhism, acting and love. The album, originally titled David Bowie then subsequently Man of Words, Man of Music, pays homage to all the influences of the London artistic scene. It shows the early song-writing talent that was yet to yield some of rock-n-roll’s finest work, even if it would take the rest of the world a few years to catch up with him.

This special 40th Anniversary edition 7" picture disc contains the UK single edit of Space Oddity on side A and Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud on Side AA (single B-side with spoken introduction). Both sides are stereo. The image for side A is from the David Bowie Archive, originally used for th 1969 Philips French picture sleeve. A photo by Vernon Dewhurst is used for side AA.
