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.
Fame and Fashion is a David Bowie compilation album issued in 1984 by RCA Records featuring songs recorded between 1969's David Bowie and 1980's Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps).
Fashion" is a track from David Bowie's 1980 album Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps). It was released as the second single from the album and was accompanied, like its predecessor "Ashes to Ashes", by a highly regarded music video. It was ranked as the 8th best single of 1980 by the NME magazine. According to co-producer Tony Visconti, "Fashion" was the last song completed in the Scary Monsters sessions, its bassline and some of the melody taking inspiration from Bowie's 1975 hit "Golden Years".
DAVID BOWIE is unarguably fashion’s king of self-invention. Mod teenager, hippy with dishevelled curls, Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, Thin White Duke – Bowie has changed his style more dramatically than any other musician in history.

The lightning bolt represented the duality of the mind, although Bowie later explained that the "lad insane" of the album's title track was inspired by his brother Terry, who was diagnosed as a schizophrenic. With his then-wife, model, actress and musician Angie Bowie, at his retirement party, held at London’s Café Royal. Although many thought he was retiring from the stage, Bowie threw the soiree to say goodbye to Ziggy Stardust – his performing persona

David Bowie was Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, The Thin White Duke. A dapper gentleman and a stylish freak. During his life, he was as much as fashion innovator as a musical vanguard. Following his passing, we are taking a fashion trip through a career that raised eyebrows and launched trends. Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images.
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.

If you can possibly get your hands on any of these, I guarantee you evenings of listening pleasure, and you will encourage a new high-minded circle of friends, although one or two choices will lead some of your old pals to think you completely barmy.
