Two Bowie vinyl exclusives for Groninger
“There’s a sailor who sings...”
A limited edition pressing of David Bowie’s Man Of Words/Man Of Music album is to be issued on blue vinyl, alongside classic versions of Amsterdam and My Death as a limited edition orange vinyl 7" single.
The records are being released via Parlophone to celebrate the opening of the V&A’s David Bowie is at the Groninger Museum, Groningen in the Netherlands, on December 11th, 2015. The records are exclusive to the exhibition. (http://smarturl.it/DavidBowieGoingDutch)
Man Of Words/Man Of Music was the US version of the 1969 David Bowie album on Mercury, aka Space Oddity.
Amsterdam is Bowie’s 1971 cover of the Jacques Brel song (with lyrics translated to English by Mort Shuman). Produced by David Bowie and Ken Scott, the track was originally recorded during the early sessions for the Ziggy Stardust album at Trident Studios, in London. It was eventually released as the B-side of the Sorrow single in October, 1973.
Despite the simple arrangement of Bowie’s vocal and Mick Ronson’s acoustic guitar, it’s a thrilling version of the song.
The recording of My Death (Brel/Blau/Shuman) on the B-side, was recorded live at Carnegie Hall, in New York on September 28th, 1972. Both Amsterdam and My Death were popular performances during live Ziggy shows.
MAN OF WORDS/MAN OF MUSIC BLUE VINYL LP EXCLUSIVE TO THE NETHERLANDS DAVID BOWIE IS' EXHIBITION Release date December 11th for the exhibition opening at the Groninger Museum, Groningen, the Netherlands.

The records are being released via Parlophone on the day of the opening on December 11th, 2015.

Apologies to Mort Shuman for the crude appropriation of his English lyrics for Amsterdam, to provide today’s lyric quotation.
