Editorial Reviews

Special 40th Anniversary two CD edition of David Bowie's classic 1969 album released in a digipak with an extensive booklet featuring rare photographs, memorabilia, and sleeve notes. Disc One features the original album remastered from the original analogue master tapes. Disc Two features 15 bonus tracks, of which eight are previously unreleased, including two ultra-rare demos. The album, produced by Tony Visconti (bar 'Space Oddity' itself which was produced by the late Gus Dudgeon), was a giant leap forward in terms of songwriting for Bowie compared to his eponymous debut, and can be considered as the first truly essential David Bowie album. Noted for a list of collaborators, including session players Herbie Flowers, Tim Renwick, Terry Cox and Rick Wakeman, the album delves into Psychedelic Folk-Rock, as well as Prog, with its genre-defying template creating a blueprint of what would become, over the next decade and more, one of the most inimitable British artists. EMI.
