David Bowie Metrobolist (aka The Man Who Sold The World) Limited 180gram Vinyl LP

As with the Space Oddity 50th anniversary vinyl, as well as a 180g black vinyl edition, it will come as limited edition handwritten numbered copies on gold vinyl (# 1971 - 2020) and on white vinyl (# 1 - 1970) all randomly distributed.

Overview:

November 2020 sees the 50th Anniversary of the release of David Bowie’s The Man Who Sold The World in North America. The album marks the beginning of a collaboration with guitarist Mick Ronson that would last through classic works including Hunky Dory, Ziggy Stardust and Aladdin Sane—as well as the first in a 10-year series of indispensable albums stretching through 1980’s Scary Monsters…

Originally titled Metrobolist, the album's name was changed at the last minute to The Man Who Sold The World. The 2020 re-release of the album under its Metrobolist moniker has been remixed by original producer Tony Visconti, with the exception of the track ‘After All’ which Tony considered perfect as is, and is featured in its 2015 remaster incarnation.

The Metrobolist 50th anniversary artwork has been created by Mike Weller who was behind the historically controversial “dress” cover which Mercury Records refused to release.

Side A

1. The Width Of A Circle
2. All The Madmen
3. Black Country Rock
4. After All

Side B

1. Running Gun Blues
2. Saviour Machine
3. She Shook Me Cold
