The instrumental track features multiple layers of acoustic guitars atop one another, [19] which was done at Scott's insistence. Also, over 3,000 people claim to have this but I imagine it's people mixing up other orange label UK versions. In 2013, NME ranked the album third in their list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, behind the Beatles' Revolver and the Smiths' The Queen Is Dead. He concluded that he could not do the project without Ronson, [3] who was enthusiastic when Bowie contacted him for the first time in nine months. Keyboardist Rick Wakeman, noted session musician and member of the Strawbs, [3] plays piano on the album; [19] he previously played Mellotron on David Bowie (1969).

However, Pegg disagrees, writing that there's no evidence to support this claim and Farthingale herself has rejected this theory.VG+ (Very Good Plus): This record has clearly been played before, but has only a moderate reduction in sound quality, despite a possible slight loss of shine and some surface marks.

The album received little promotion from RCA due to its unusual cover image and a warning that Bowie would be changing his image for his next album.

Ronson then suggested his acquaintance Trevor Bolder, a former hairdresser and piano tuner who had previously seen Bowie in concert in 1970 and met Ronson at Haddon Hall.Release [ edit ] Left to right: Dana Gillespie, Tony Defries and David Bowie at Andy Warhol's Pork at London's Roundhouse in 1971. With the exception of my little grump about the rear sleeve I have found nothing really wrong with it.
