The Man Who Sold the World (1970) - David Bowie

David Bowie - The Man Who Sold the World album cover« David Bowie

I remember the first time I heard The Man Who Sold the World I was walking through store called "Brendles" and the RCA version was playing on a turntable. Even though I had only heard Ziggy Stardust at this point, I knew right away it was David Bowie.

I ended up buying the 1970 Mercury version with the cartoon cover, but it was real scratchy and a line from "Width of a Circle" was clipped out. That made me wonder if it was a legit copy.

Bowie T-shirt The Man Who Sold the WorldMy first rock and roll t-shirt that I bought from Reznick's was dark blue with the 1972 RCA cover. I still have that t-shirt.
