David Robert Jones AKA David Bowie, 1947 – 2016. Innovator. Inspiration. Icon.
David Bowie (aka Space Oddity) is the second studio album by Bowie. First released in 1969, this version was re-mastered for the Bowie Five Years Box Set in 2015.
Still one of David Bowie's best-known songs, "Space Oddity" was a largely acoustic number augmented by the eerie tones of the composer's Stylophone, a pocket electronic organ.
The album came about after Bowie had made the transition from a cabaret/avant-garde-inspired musician to a hippie/folk-based sound and as such the album is a major turning point from his 1967 debut.
