David Bowie is the second studio album by the English musician David Bowie, released under that title by Philips in the UK, and as Man of Words/Man of Music by Mercury in the US, on 14 November 1969. It was reissued in 1972 by RCA Records as Space Oddity (the title of the opening track, which had reached No. 5 in the UK Singles Chart). Space Oddity was the name used for CD releases of the album in 1984, 1990 and 1999, but it reverted to the original, eponymous title for 2009 and 2015 reissues.

David Bowie is the self-titled debut studio album by English musician David Bowie, released on 1 June 1967, on Deram Records. Its style and content bears little overt resemblance to the type of music that he was later known for, such as the folk rock influenced "Space Oddity" or the glam rock of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

5 David Jones acquired his famous eyes in 1962 when his best friend, George Underwood, punched him during a fracas over a girl. The injury permanently paralysed the muscles in his left iris, creating the illusion of heterochromia or different coloured irises. 9 The failure of his eponymous debut album – a Swinging London affair that mixed pop, music hall and psychedelia – and its novelty single The Laughing Gnome in 1967 – prompted the newly renamed David Bowie to follow art rather than populism. Enrolling in Lindsay Kemp’s London Dance Centre, he began to explore mime, commedia dell’arte and his sexuality (the two were probably lovers). Here Robert Fripp’s guitars and Brian Eno’s electronics rise until Bowie’s voice is fighting against the music – a lone individual against the elements. 32 By 1980, Bowie’s legacy was sufficiently rich that he could call upon his followers for inspiration.

Originally released as David Bowie in the UK and Man of Words/Man of Music in the US, David Bowie’s second album was reissued as Space Oddity in 1972. It was known under the name of its lead single – by far the most famous song on the album – on four subsequent releases, but from 2009 was released under its original name of David Bowie. Confusingly, so is Bowie’s 1967 début. Although the lead single hit in the UK, and eventually reached in 1975, the album was less successful, peaking at in the UK and in the US. Bowie was just getting started. David Bowie/Space Oddity Q&A.

Like thousands of music fans all over the world, David Bowie fell in love with New York because of the Velvet Underground. He would visit the city for the first time in 1971, coming over to do press for Hunky Dory; he insisted on being introduced to both Iggy Pop and Lou Reed immediately

The best David Bowie collaborations find the legendary artist mixing his unique vision with other like-minded musicians. Here are 12 essential examples. Bowie found kindred spirits in Placebo, and, as Brian Molko told uDiscover in 2016, after hearing the title track from their second album he tracked the Placebo frontman down in Barbados to tell him, I really, really like it, so I’ve written my own harmony part. Initially wanting to perform it with the band at the BRIT Awards, Bowie was later convinced to make it one of the official David Bowie collaborations, recording it with the band for a single release. Arcade Fire: ‘Reflektor’

Bowie’s voice was brilliant. Unparalleled I would say, but I am hardly unbiased. But beyond mere range, Bowie had an inimitable style  . Bowie’s voice was brilliant. Bowie has said in interviews that he used his voice as a tool or instrument in recording so his vocals became whatever they needed to be to express what he was trying to achieve as a songwriter. Bowie had the ability to sing with incredible ease and confidence and his technique combined with his incredible range was magnificent

This is from a Quadrophonic encoded FM Broadcast in 1974, DTS theatre systems will decode the quad signal.Ziggy Stardust & Width of a Circle were broadcast too but there was no room on a single LP for those songsits a pity a 2LP wasn't made with the full broadcast and the 1980 floor show tracks as fillerThis is still my favourite source for this concert, and i'm told CD transfers of this LP are still selling strongly as bootlegs.midway through the Diamond Dogs Tour Bowie and Earl Slick went into a recording studio in the mid west and overdubbed Earl Slick's guitar to beef up the sound. according to an engineer at the session Slick replaced at least some of Jeff Becks parts.no wonder it sounds so powerful with Earl Slick on it!so maybe you could call it cheating but but its such a great listen I can easily overlook its strange originsthere is a pitch wobble issue that gets worse as the show goes on but not enough to spoil your enjoyment.the broadcast had certain words beeped out , (Viscounti deliberately did it badly to show how ridiculous it was)in some cases the bootleggers were able to patch the censored sections with part of the album versions in other case there is a small editthe wierd hollow sound of the 1983 official release kind of shows the logic of the 1974 guitar overdubs (i'm assuming they were stripped out for the official release)in 73/74 Bowie fans were clamouring for an official live release and when it happened it was the anaemic David Live so copies of this show and the santa monica show from 72 were rapturously received

Yahm
Is this the music from Ziggy Stardust: the Motion Picture with the two songs they did with Jeff Beck?

I don't understand why Discogs allows these to be merged into one single listing. The original 'Last Stand' is a totally different album from the rest of them. It has two extra tracks, original yellow and black TAKRL labels and a different insert. It should be listed separately from the 2nd issue and all subsequent releases.

You could always have a go yourself at doing some editing

Found this in a basement. Put on side 2, thought I had uncovered a dark secret of witchcraft until I heard Bowie come in saying " TIIIMEE" Hilarious!

Info I got from 'a true conoisseur' I think it's useful to post it here:The first edition released in 1974 had two extra tracks: Rebel Rebel and Panic In Detroit. Came with inserts in various colors. This edition is extremely rare.The second edition: minus the 2 extra tracks. Also released in 1974. Came with inserts in various colors and the mark 2 in the left top corner.Later on the bootlegger started to use printed on covers, using the designs of the old inserts and the new standard back on all releases. So, the third printed on release also had the 2 on the cover.

The gig was notorious, probably apocryphal though, for its highly charged sexual atmosphere. Allegedly couples were making out, boys masturbating and girls giving head; all in full view of other audience members. This probably explains why the bootlegger, with a sense of humour, added the 'Orgy' narration on at the start of side two before 'Time', a track itself that doesn't shy away from sexual imagery with its, "Falls wanking to the floor", line for instance. (How that shocked dear mama when she first heard Aladdin Sane!). There are also two other flashes of humour at the end of each side where the creator has directly lifted two questions probably from a sex manual record. Respectively one goes, "....bisexuals cannot be trusted or even close friends. True or false?'' and the other''...the average size of a fully erect penis is 18 inches. True or false?''. This may sound a bit puerile on just reading this but it is in keeping with the zeitgeist and the feel of the record.The album itself whilst a little rough around the edges sound wise is far superior in my opinion to the official, heavily studio overdubbed, version released years later. What it sometime loses in quality is made up for in its raw power, energy and excitement. Note that on 'Suffragette City' when it comes to the, ''Wham bam thank you mam" sequence this is a direct lift from 'Ziggy' probably because Bowie became inaudible at this point due to the audience screaming the line back so the bootlegger has inserted the overdub. Overall and ace bootleg and a must have for a true connoisseur.

It was my understanding that this version of the gig was taken from a TV broadcast and that the overdubs were clunky repairs to censored lyrics - the title line in Rock'N'Roll Suicide is also overdubbed from the studio album track. The word 'suicide' is actually cut from All The Young Dudes without repair. Seems the censor was too slow on the button to prevent 'Bitch' getting through on Moonage Daydream and, curiously, allowed 'wanking' through on Time. But that's the nature of censorship - dumb and inconsistent. With all it's faults, though, I agree this version of the show has balls to spare compared with the emasculated official release.
