TMWSTW released In the UK on this day In 1971

on April 10, 2016

 

“You’re face to face with”

 

David Bowie’s third studio album, the Tony Visconti-produced The Man Who Sold The World, was released on this day (April 10th) in 1971 in the UK.

Issued the previous November in the US, the UK release was delayed in no small part due to ‘problems’ regarding the sleeve artwork.

Pictured here (clockwise from top left) are the original US and UK versions, the German round cover, and the standard worldwide 1972 RCA reissue.

Don’t forget the RSD picture disc issue of the German round cover released this coming Saturday, April 16th.

Four great sleeves, one classic

Dennis is pictured here guesting with Bowie during an encore of Let’s Dance at a special BowieNet show at the Roseland Ballroom,
