Very Limited Edition 40th anniversary 7” picture disc of David Bowie’s iconic ‘Life On Mars?’ single.
Originally appearing on the Hunky Dory album, ‘Life On Mars?’ was released as a single on 22nd June, 1973 on RCA – reaching #3 in the UK - when Bowie’s career had gone stratospheric following the huge success of his The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars and Aladdin Sane albums and tours.
This 40th anniversary release features the rare Ken Scott mix, (mixed at Abbey Road Studios in 2003 that created the Ziggy Stardust 5.1 mixes) on the A-side and on the AA-side ‘Life On Mars? (Live)’ taken from a recording at The Music Hall, Boston on 1st October, 1972’, previously only available on the 2 CD 30th Anniversary Edition of Aladdin Sane.
Both sides feature photos from legendary photographer Mick Rock: the A-side, a photo from the era-defining ‘Life On Mars?’ promo film, which the photographer also directed; the AA-side a photo from the Music Hall, Boston concert.
