  • This is Bowie's debut album (originally titled LOVE YOU 'TIL TUESDAY), which was released in June 1967.
  • After a few years of cutting R&B covers and shouty Beatle/Who knock-offs, David Bowie graduated to the sort of dizzying musical experimentation which was soon to make him the stuff of legend. DAVID BOWIE shows a Bowie far removed from of Davie Jones the King Bees or Manish Boys, well on his way to the eclectic luminary status he was soon to achieve. DAVID BOWIE is a surprisingly sprawling affair--composed entirely by the 19-year old Bowie, it reflects a drastic movement from the imitative, R&B-tinged early efforts to a staggering musical complexity and often-abstract poetic wordplay.
  • Embracing the hyper-dramatic efforts of then-man-about-town Anthony Newley ("Uncle Arthur," "Please Mr. Gravedigger,") Bowie works in bizarre, lyrical dreamscapes which must have made the young Robyn Hitchcock swoon--namely the stand-out arpeggiated guitar and medieval melodic tone of "Come And Buy My Toys." Soon enough, the cheeky musical theater atmosphere would disappear, and a parade of successive reincarnations would continue to redefine popular music for decades to come.
