In honor of the 50th anniversary of the moon landing yesterday, here’s a demo version of Bowie doing Space Oddity with John “Hutch” Hutchinson that appears on the Mercury Demos (released this past June) and I believe was also on the Sound + Vision box set. Fascinating to hear this classic song in such an early form and to put yourself in the shoes of the people listening to the demo – must have blown them away. Also funny to hear Bowie say some of these songs might be single material – ah, I think so!
One thought on “Song of the Day Sunday Morning 7/21/19 David Bowie – Space Oddity (Mercury Demo)”
Wow, that’s pretty cool! Admittedly, it perhaps primarily something for fans of early David Bowie and this tune. I’m both!
