The album, which features Bowie covering songs by the likes of Pink Floyd, The Kinks and The Who, hit number one on pre-orders alone when it was first released 46 years ago.
Its now-iconic cover sees Bowie pictured alongside 60s supermodel Twiggy, who was also namechecked in a song on ‘Aladdin Sane’ released that same year.
Side one of the picture disc features that image, taken by Justin de Villeneuve initially for Vogue magazine. Side two features a Mick Rock photograph from the same session that was used for the LP’s back cover.
Bowie’s music has become a fixture of Record Store Day. Limited edition releases of his work over the years have included picture disc singles for ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Suicide’, ‘Changes’, ‘Drive-In Saturday’, ‘TVC 15’, ‘Life On Mars’ and ‘The Jean Genie’.
Album releases have included limited editions of his self-titled debut album, ‘Let’s Dance’, and a picture disc version of ‘The Man Who Sold The World’.
