Just when you thought you couldn’t spend ANY MORE on David Bowie reissues, here is a shot of the forthcoming 40th anniversary seven-inch picture disc of Space Oddity.
In case there is any confusion, this is the anniversary of the 1975 RCA reissue which was when the single actually got to number one in the UK. Despite this, the track listing of the reissue is in line with the 1969 Philips version and features the UK Single Edit version of the song, backed with the B-side version of Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud.
This Space Oddity anniversary is of course well out of sync, but is consistent with the era, coming between Fame and Golden Years. If you are collecting these then Amazon France have this new one for €10 or just over £7, which isn’t bad.
Space Oddity picture disc is released on 2 October 2015.
