David Bowie - David Bowie (Space Oddity)
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
David Bowie aka Space Oddity was the second studio album from David Bowie. The album was originally released as a self-titled album, but later released titled Space Oddity as to not be confused with his UK self-titled debut album. However, the album reverted to the original eponymous title for a 2009 reissue.
This album features David Bowie's first hit single, "Space Oddity" and sets the tone for the spacey Ziggy Stardust to come. Space Oddity was a giant leap forward for David Bowie in terms of songwriting as compared to his eponymous debut and it is considered the first truly essential Bowie release.
Noted for a list of collaborators, including session players Herbie Flowers, Tim Renwick, Terry Cox and Rick Wakeman, Space Oddity delves into psychedelic folk-rock, as well as prog, with its genre-defying template and it helped create a blueprint that over the next decade would make Bowie the most inimitable British artists.
