“We spoke of was and when...”
This week we’re looking at The Man Who Sold The World ahead of the release of the David Bowie (Five Years 1969 – 1973) box set (due September 25th).
Just unearthed from The David Bowie Archive ® is the advert, bottom right in our montage, for the original 1970 US release of TMWSTW.
Top left is the 1974 advert we mentioned previously, which was placed by RCA following the success of Lulu’s version of the song when it reached #3 on the official UK singles chart.
Top right are various adverts for the RCA issues of both TMWSTW and Space Oddity in 1972.
