Five Years Box album 1: Space Oddity

“And the papers want to know”

As you may have noticed by now, in the run up to the release of the David Bowie (Five Years 1969 – 1973) box set (due September 25th), we’re taking a look at each of the LPs contained within.
This week we’ve been looking at the first album in the set, Space Oddity. Our montage shows just a few of the various press pieces relating to the single which preceded the album and gave Bowie his first Top 5 hit in the UK.
One of David’s music press supporters at the time was Penny Valentine, whose review in Disc and Music Echo must have persuaded a few buyers to help the record reach that #5 spot. Here’s the full thing which was even reprinted on the front of the RECORD RETAILER trade magazine.

    David Bowie Space Oddity single review by Penny Valentine, Disc and Music Echo. (Published July 10, 1969. Cover date July 12, 1969)

    David Bowie – an amazing sound!

    I have a bet on in the office that this is going to be a huge hit – and knock everyone senseless. There are disbelievers among us! David Bowie has always been talented but had a nasty knack of sounding like Tony Newley. Good records came from him but nothing to actually make you fall over. This does though. In fact I listened spellbound throughout, panting to know the outcome of poor Major Tom and his trip into the outer hemisphere. Apart from that – and some really clever lyrics – the sound is amazing. Mr. Bowie sounds like the Bee Gees on their best record – "New York Mining Disaster" – and has managed to arrange the backing to sound like a cross between the Moody Blues, Beatles and Simon and Garfunkel. It's obviously going to do well in America, which is nice. OUT TOMORROW

Stay tuned for more Space Oddity celebrations.

Five Years Box album 1: Space Oddity

“And the stars look very different today”

We’ve been looking at Space Oddity this week, the first album in the David Bowie (Five Years 1969 – 1973) box set (due September 25th).

To promote the reissue of both the Space Oddity and The Man Who Sold The World albums by RCA in late 1972, the label released the title track from each album in a picture sleeve single in the US in early 1973.

The single was further promoted with a new video shot by Mick Rock in New York in RCA’s studio 3. The promotion paid off as it gave Bowie his first American Top 20 single when it reached #15 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Check out Mick Rock’s Space Oddity video here on YouTube.

Stay tuned for more Space Oddity celebrations.

“I gazed a gazely stare”

This week we’re looking at The Man Who Sold The World ahead of the release of the David Bowie (Five Years 1969 – 1973) box set (due September 25th).
You’re probably familiar with the ‘dress’ sleeve for this album which originally only made it to the UK and Australia. But that’s a whole other story.
Pictured here is an alternative shot from the session by Keef (Keith MacMillan) which we’ve mocked up to a finished sleeve.
We also made another one with David wearing his other less flamboyant ‘man’s dress’, which you can view by swiping/scrolling the picture here.
Listen to The Man Who Sold The World here.

Five Years Box album 2: TMWSTW

“He said I was his friend”

The Man Who Sold The World, has sounded pretty good in the hands of others. Regular visitors to this page will know Tony Visconti and Woody Woodmansey’s Holy Holy with Glenn Gregory have been faithfully reproducing the album live over the past year to very enthusiastic audiences.
Possibly one of the better known renditions of the title track was Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged in New York version (recorded in November 1993), which introduced the song to a whole new audience. And then there was Midge Ure’s version.
Forty one years ago a 25-year-old Lulu released the first of a few career resurrections in the shape of the Polydor 45, The Man Who Sold The World/Watch That Man.
Produced and arranged by David Bowie and Mick Ronson the track reached #3 on the official UK singles chart, Lulu's first top ten hit for five years.
The unlikely coupling created lots of press for the release, the Daily Mirror article in our montage being just one such item.
The success of the single prompted RCA to take full page adverts for the Bowie album of the same name with the wording: Contains the original version of The Man Who Sold The World.
It's a cracking record with a superb arrangement and unmistakable Bowie backing vocals on the chorus, not to mention a great Bowie sax riff and guitar licks from Ronno that aren’t on the original Bowie version. Apparently DB is a bit partial to the Lulu version himself.
Lulu went on to record a couple more songs with David that ended up on his own Young Americans album after he decided to keep them for himself...but that's another story.
See Lulu’s promo video for The Man Who Sold The World here on YouTube.

“We spoke of was and when...”

This week we’re looking at The Man Who Sold The World ahead of the release of the David Bowie (Five Years 1969 – 1973) box set (due September 25th).

Just unearthed from The David Bowie Archive ® is the advert, bottom right in our montage, for the original 1970 US release of TMWSTW.

Top left is the 1974 advert we mentioned previously, which was placed by RCA following the success of Lulu’s version of the song when it reached #3 on the official UK singles chart.

Top right are various adverts for the RCA issues of both TMWSTW and Space Oddity in 1972.

However, one thing we’ve yet to trace is a UK advert for the Mercury dress sleeve from 1971. Anybody out there ever see one?

Five Years Box album 3: Hunky Dory

“Strange fascination, fascinating me”

This week we’re looking at 1971’s Hunky Dory album ahead of the release of the David Bowie (Five Years 1969 – 1973) box set (due September 25th).
Though the public may have been slow to pick up on Hunky Dory, this is the album that united critics in their praise of Bowie and his music.
Here follows a couple of excerpts from reviews published at the time.

    Hunky Dory review for Changes magazine by Henry Edwards, December 15, 1971

    Mr David Bowie is not just another pretty face. And that's saying something in an age in which beauty is only skin deep, and more than enough to get anybody almost anything. David's flaxen hair, his piercing blue eyes, his blush red lips, have made him the inevitable envy of the of the world’s aspiring Starlets. Happily, however, these purely physical traits are attached to a sensibility, and that special Essence of David makes Hunky Dory a special record indeed.

    I am sure that, one day, the fist of the Almighty invaded the boy's skull, plucked his brain from his cranium, and after gingerly admiring and caressing it, decided it was too precious to share, and smashed it to smithereens. The result is much like the outpouring of a gaily coloured, kaleidoscope, fragmented but dazzling, jagged bits and pieces of unusually shaped objects, incessantly changing patterns with every gust of wind, each one a very special Bowie song.

    + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - + - +

    Hunky Dory review for Rolling Stone, by John Mendelsohn, 6 January 1972

    DAVID BOWIE, the swinging/mod Garbo, male femme fatale, confidante to and darling of the avant-garde on both sides of the Atlantic, and shameless outrage, is back, and with a bang, although bearing little resemblance to the dangerous loony of The Man Who Sold The World from earlier this year.

    For the most part, Dave is back, after an affair with heavy! high-energy killer techniques, back into his 1966-ish, Tony Newley/pop-rock thang, and happily so. Hunky Dory is his most easily accessible, and thus most readily enjoyable work since his Man Of Words/Man of Music album of 1969.

    Hunky Dory not only represents Bowie's most engaging album musically, but also finds him once more writing literally enough to let the listener examine his ideas comfortably, without having to withstand a barrage of seemingly impregnable verbiage before getting at an idea.

Listen to Hunky Dory here now.

Five Years Box album 3: Hunky Dory

“Hooked to the silver screen...”

This week we’re looking at 1971’s Hunky Dory album ahead of the release of the David Bowie (Five Years 1969 – 1973) box set (due September 25th).

One of the best-loved songs on the album is Life On Mars? which became a #3 hit when it was released as a single in 1973.

The song is frequently listed among Bowie fans’ favourite songs. In fact, it remains the UK's best-selling vinyl single of the decade so far according to The Official Charts Company.

One of the factors that has no doubt contributed to Life On Mars? continued appreciation, is the stunning video which was directed by photographer Mick Rock.

Alternative Ziggy Stardust sleeve revealed

“...gaze a while down the old street“

For those of you that follow our Instagram page, you may have noticed that we’ve been teasing Parlophone’s rather nice alternative Ziggy Stardust cover, pictured here in its full glory.
The artwork features an alternative Brian Ward shot from the original Ziggy sleeve session in London’s Heddon Street and it has been coloured in the style of Terry Pastor’s original colour scheme.
The sleeve houses Ken Scott’s 2003 mix of The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars (previously only available with the Limited Edition 40th Anniversary Vinyl version of the album), and it’s included with both the CD and vinyl versions of the David Bowie (Five Years 1969 – 1973) box set, due September 25th.
Next week we will be focusing on David Bowie’s classic 1972 Ziggy Stardust album.
