“Watching him dash away”
Forty years ago on a glam-rocked planet, on April 13th 1973, Aladdin Sane was gifted to the world (see the RCA adverts on the Facebook version of this item for evidence).
We would clearly be preaching to the converted if we tried to suggest to you how great an album Aladdin Sane is, particularly as the album was voted #5 in a recent poll of Bowie’s studio albums on David Bowie (Official).
We will be celebrating this and the release of EMI’s Aladdin Sane 40th Anniversary remaster on Monday, with a new contest on the Facebook page.
For the curious among you, the picture here is of one of the rarer formats of the original album. It’s the American Aladdin Sane reel-to-reel.
