Hunky Dory still incredible at 44
“Oh, look out you rock ’n rollers“
David Bowie’s Hunky Dory LP (his first for RCA), was released on this day in the UK in 1971. The album had already been released in the USA at this point, as had the attendant single, Changes. However, despite a decent press campaign and very appreciative reviews, the record didn't enter the UK Top 50 for another ten months and it took several more weeks before it entered the Top 20 at the height of Ziggymania. It eventually peaked at #3, incredible when one considers how important a recording the majority of Bowie fans (and indeed, rock fans in general), consider Hunky Dory to be today. If for some mad reason this masterpiece has escaped you thus far, prepare yourself for greatness here.

44 years Ago Today – David Bowie Releases Classic ‘Hunky Dory’ LP (Watch “Oh You Pretty Things”)
December 17, 2015 by Glide
44 years ago to day (12/17/71), David Bowie released arguably his strongest recorded effort to date Hunky Dory. Bowie’s fourth album was the first production featuring all the members of the band that would become known the following year as Ziggy Stardust’s Spiders From Mars which consisted of consisted of Mick Ronson on guitars, Trevor Bolder on bass guitar and Mick Woodmansey on drums, although Hunky Dory also featured Rick Wakeman on piano. With only two singles (“Life on Mars” “Changes”) on the album, it was rounded out with a complete package of 11 songs that are all classic in their own variety. Bowie himself considers the album to be one of the most important in his career. Speaking in 1999, he said: “Hunky Dory gave me a fabulous groundswell. I guess it provided me, for the first time in my life, with an actual audience – I mean, people actually coming up to me and saying, ‘Good album, good songs.’ That hadn’t happened to me before. It was like, ‘Ah, I’m getting it, I’m finding my feet. I’m starting to communicate what I want to do. Now: what is it I want to do?’
