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.

Similarly, the liner notes incorrectly list the personnel for "Lightning Frightning" as those who played with Bowie during the Space Oddity period, when in fact the personnel were members of the Arnold Corns sessions proto-group. Rykodisc later released this album in the AU20 series (RCD 80132) with 24-bit digitally remastered sound.

The world mourns today after David Bowie, one of the most defining and iconic figures of the last century, passed away yesterday following an 18-month battle with cancer. A huge blow to music fans the world over, Bowie’s impact on not just music but culture in general cannot be overstated. A savant when it came to pairing image, character and music to create a cultural entity of himself greater than the sum of his influences, it was Bowie’s ability to craft a mythology around himself while backing it up with timeless music which truly set him apart from his contemporaries. It would be the time Bowie spent in the US promoting his third album The Man Who Sold The World (1970) that would inspire him to create his greatest creation to date, the outer-space pop idol Ziggy Stardust. A melding of the image and character of Iggy Pop with the music of Lou Reed, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and The Spiders from Mars would come to be one of the most seminal albums of the 20th Century.

This 1969 release features David Bowie's first hit single, "Space Oddity," and sets the tone for the spacey Ziggy Stardust to come. But other than the title track, Space Oddity isn't a glam-rock album. For that phase, one must move ahead to 1970's The Man Who Sold the World. These folk-based tracks largely present Bowie as a surrealist singer-songwriter. The bitter and sarcastic "Letter to Hermione" is the most impassioned track here, presenting, as it does, the angry side of this master of cool

In April 1971, it was released in the UK on the Mercury label with a striking photography by Keef (Keith MacMillan) of David wearing a dress. Mercury released The Man Who Sold the World with yet another cover in Germany. Commonly known as the round cover, this version is the rarest of the three Mercury releases. RCA reissued the album worldwide (along with Space Oddity) in1972 with a black and white Ziggy-era cover shot taken by Brian Ward. Scroll the images to view all four version of the album. 1.

This included albums and singles, like Space Oddity, The Laughing Gnome, and of course, Life on Mars?. Life on Mars? is about a girl who’s fed up with the world, and wants to escape from Earth, raising the question, Is there life on mars? Along with the song, Bowie teamed up with Mick Rock to produce a music video for Life on Mars?, in promotion with the single
