“We spoke of was and when”

 

Today we celebrate the November 1970 US release of Mike Weller’s ‘cartoon sleeve’ version of David Bowie’s The Man Who Sold The World, which you can see in the advert reproduced here.

Following the brouhaha over Bowie’s original intended artwork for the album, TMWSTW wasn’t released in the UK for another six months.

But that’s a whole other story that we’ll be looking at shortly.

Meanwhile go have a listen to this fine Tony Visconti produced recording on the David Bowie (Five Years 1969 – 1973) box set.
