David Bowie: Hunky Dory 12"

Parlophone Records


David Bowie's Hunky Dory still sounds as invigorating, fresh, and kaleidoscopic in scope as it did upon original release more than four decades ago. Built from a six-song demo he had used to entice RCA to sign him and featuring the timeless songs "Changes" and "Life on Mars," Bowie's first album recorded with producer Ken Scott finds the musical chameleon back in the role of singer/songwriter. He pays tribute to his influences with the postmodern pop songs "Andy Warhol," "Song for Bob Dylan," and the Velvet Underground inspired "Queen Bitch." Almost immediately, Bowie followed the record up with the instant classic The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.
