David Bowie - Pin Ups [Picture Disc]
|Status:||ITEM CAN SHIP IMMEDIATELY|
Pin Ups features Bowie covering songs by the likes of Pink Floyd, The Kinks and The Who. When originally released in 1973, the David Bowie / Ken Scott produced album was preceded by the only single, "Sorrow".
Its now-iconic cover sees Bowie pictured alongside 60s supermodel Twiggy, who was also namechecked in a song on ‘Aladdin Sane’ released that same year. The photo session was shot in Paris for Vogue magazine, but at Bowie's request was used for the album instead.
This same image is used for Side 1 of the picture disc. Originally, the back cover and insert featured Mick Rock photographs and Side 2 of the picture disc uses one of his artworks which utilized images from that session. This picture disc includes a reproduction of the insert, and the back cover is as the original.
Exclusively pressed by Parlophone Records in celebration of Record Store Day 2019. Die-cut outer-sleeve.
