2016 EU reissue on 180g Vinyl LP-David Bowie's first album of the 1970s, the Tony Visconti-produced The Man Who Sold the World represents the beginning of the landmark artist's classic period. Mick Ronson's guitars occupy hard-rock and psychedelic domains, and Bowie pursues a sound that's simultaneously bizarre, fuzzed-out, and alien. Made more famous by Nirvana's cover of the title track on MTV Unplugged in New York, The Man Who Sold the World goes much deeper than one song. The record points in the unpredictable, innovative directions Bowie would travel throughout the 1970s. In addition, the album's cover, on which Bowie wears a dress, remains a landmark image and indicative of his bold refusal of hard-and-fast sexual identities.

David Bowie Explores Hard-Rock Twists on 1970 Landmark The Man Who Sold the World: 180g Vinyl LP Features Title Track Famously Covered by Nirvana and Stellar Remastered Sound

David Bowie's first album of the 1970s, the Tony Visconti-produced The Man Who Sold the World represents the beginning of the landmark artist's classic period. Mick Ronson's guitars occupy hard-rock and psychedelic domains, and Bowie pursues a sound that's simultaneously bizarre, fuzzed-out, and alien. Made more famous by Nirvana's cover of the title track on MTV Unplugged in New York, The Man Who Sold the World goes much deeper than one song. The record points in the unpredictable, innovative directions Bowie would travel throughout the 1970s. In addition, the album's cover, on which Bowie wears a dress, remains a landmark image and indicative of his bold refusal of hard-and-fast sexual identities.

Bowie said of Nirvana's cover: "I was simply blown away when I found that Kurt Cobain liked my work, and have always wanted to talk to him about his reasons for covering 'The Man Who Sold the World' and that it was a good straight forward rendition and sounded somehow very honest."
