SPYING THROUGH A KEYHOLE
marking 50 years since David Bowie’s first hit, ‘Space Oddity’, this 7" singles boxset compiles nine previously unreleased recordings from the era during which ‘Space Oddity’ was first conceived.
The title is a lyric taken from the previously unknown song, ‘Love All Around’, and though most of the other titles are known, these versions have never been officially released until late last year. Most of the recordings are solo vocal and acoustic home demo performances, unless otherwise stated. The design of each single label is presented to reflect the way David sent many of his demos to publishers and record companies, featuring his own handwritten song titles on EMIDISC acetate labels. The singles themselves are all mono and play at 45 r.p.m.
