It's safe in the city to love in a doorway To wrangle some screams from the dawn And isn't it me, putting pain in a stranger? Like a portrait in flesh, who trails on a leash Will you see that I'm scared and I'm lonely? So I'll break up my room, and yawn and I Run to the centre of things Where the knowing one says: "Boys, Boys, it's a sweet thing Boys, Boys, it's a sweet thing, sweet thing If you want it, boys, get it here, thing For hope, boys, is a cheap thing, cheap thing"
David Bowie is the second studio album by the English musician David Bowie, released under that title by Philips in the UK, and as Man of Words/Man of Music by Mercury in the US, on 14 November 1969. It was reissued in 1972 by RCA Records as Space Oddity (the title of the opening track, which had reached No. 5 in the UK Singles Chart). Space Oddity was the name used for CD releases of the album in 1984, 1990 and 1999, but it reverted to the original, eponymous title for 2009 and 2015 reissues.
David Bowie is the self-titled debut studio album by English musician David Bowie, released on 1 June 1967, on Deram Records. Its style and content bears little overt resemblance to the type of music that he was later known for, such as the folk rock influenced "Space Oddity" or the glam rock of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.
These are just some of the ingredients in the story of how DAVID BOWIE pulled himself out of his ’80s malaise with TIN MACHINE – a band of fucking heathens who paved the way for his creative rebirth in the following decade. Here Reeves Gabrels, Hunt Sales and Tony F. Sales, Kevin Armstrong and producer Tim Palmer reveal all to Rob Hughes about Bowie’s creative motivations.

Visconti reconnected with Bowie during the mixing of Diamond Dogs, and then was called in to work on 1974s David Live album. It was never clear to me who was actually in charge," says Sanborn. It was very much, in retrospect, a collaboration between David and Tony. But closer to home, for me, he was just one of the guys, slugging away, trying to make this shit happen, like the rest of us. That this album sat on a shelf for all these years is a testament to that. Stream The Gouster, from the newly released box set Who Can I Be Now?
A previously unreleased David Bowie album is set to be released. The Gouster, recorded in 1974, was Bowie’s experiment in soul and funk, which later morphed into Young Americans, released in 1975. We weren’t ‘young, gifted and black’ but we sure as hell wanted to make a killer soul album, which was quite insane, but pioneers like the Righteous Brothers were there before us. So The Gouster began with the outrageous, brand new, funkified version of David’s classic John, I’m Only Dancing, a single he wrote and recorded in 1972, only this time our version sounded like it was played live in a loft party in Harlem and he added (Again) to the title. Back home, Visconti forged ahead with the mix until he received a phone call. He later recalled: A week or so later I was in London mixing the album and I got a call from David.
