.
☕️ the ALBUM
RCA Records released the sixth studio album by David Bowie on 19 April 1973.^
.
☕️ the SLEEVE
Design by Brian Duffy and Celia Philo.
.
Brian Duffy (15 June 1933 – 31 May 2010) was an English photographer and film producer, best remembered for his fashion and portrait photography of the 1960s and 1970s. Co-founder in 1973 with Celia Philo of the Duffy Design Concepts studio. ^
.
The decision to get Duffy in to shoot the “Aladdin Sane” album cover was made by Bowie’s then manager, Tony Defries. “I was looking for an iconic cover image and artwork that would help me to persuade RCA that Bowie was sufficiently important to warrant megastar treatment and funding, in order to propel him to exactly that status.”^^
.
The famous red and blue lightning bolt which is painted across Bowie’s face was, in fact, inspired by the logo on a rice cooker in the studio kitchen. “In the studio we had a sort of mobile make-up table with mirrors on it, and on wheels,” Duffy's studio manager Francis Newman recalls. “I remember David sitting in front of that with makeup artist Pierre Laroche, and they had obviously talked about using this flash. Well, Pierre started to apply this tiny little flash on his face and when Duffy saw it he said, ‘No, not fucking like that, like this.’ He literally drew it right across his face and said to Pierre, 'Now, fill that in.'”
.
A shot that became the defining look of Bowie’s long career, and has been referred to as the “Mona Lisa of pop.”**

Há 45 anos, David Bowie lançava o single Life On Mars. Sua gravação original para o disco contava com uma intrincada composição de piano do tecladista Rick Wakeman. A música faz parte do álbum Hunky Dory.

So Life on Mars? by David Bowie was released as a single 45 years ago today. It’s interesting how #bowie never personally rated the song (perhaps its origins being based around Bowie’s bitterness at being passed over for adapting what became My Way for Frank Sinatra played no small part), though it went on to become one of his best loved signature tunes, possibly the greatest thing he ever wrote, aided substantially by that incredible #mickronson string arrangement. And who can forget the iconic video, as seen above? Classic. #davidbowie #lifeonmars #single #45 #birthday #classic #pop #rock #video #1973 #mickrock #glam #franksinatra #myway #instagood #instamusic #instapopular #instafollow

本日は、Modern Records 3号店(ロック専門)で、【70s Rock】のシングルをアップしました。 こちらの7inchは、最期まで時代と共に変化し続けた、ロック史上不世出の天才アーティスト、【David Bowie】の2012年作品で、Mick Rock撮影による128ページの写真集が付属された、Virgin Recordsの限定STEEL缶 BOX SET。 映画 《オズの魔法使い》の挿入歌『Over The Rainbow』をベースに作られたという、サバービア選出の美し過ぎる大名曲『Starman』、Mott The Hoopleに楽曲提供を断られた曲としても有名な、 Mick Ronson参加のグラムロック『Suffragette City』を、特製スリーブ付きでカップリングしたRed Waxで、Bowieファンに大人気のコレクターズ・アイテムです。 ●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●●● Syd Barrett、Lou Reed、Iggy Popなど、1970年代を彩るミュージシャンを撮影した《Mick Rock》の写真は、グラムロック・ファンにとっては本当に特別な存在で、1972年にボウイと運命的な出会いを果たした【”Ziggy Stardust”の初期衝動】を見事に捉えたものばかり。 「ミックは、僕が自分自身を見るのと同じ視線で僕を見てくれる」とBowieが語った通り、お互いのアーティスト性を高め合う、とても大切な関係だった事が伝わってきます。 昨年原宿で行われた【Mick Rock展覧会】も、本当に沢山のファンの方が来場されておりましたが、今回こちらの写真集からはレアショットを何枚かアップさせて頂きましたので、お好きな方にご覧頂けましたらとても嬉しいです♪

A brilliant day with some brilliant people! Our rock n’ roll geek-tour of London started by us finding the street/building on the front cover of Bowie’s ‘Rise and Fall’ album. A surreal experience!

David and Mick at a conference (if I remember correctly 😅) with the rest of the spiders from mars! ❤️ I must say, David looks especially Ziggy here, only thing missing is any makeup 🎶 And of course the ever talented Mick Ronson is always awesome to see and listen to✨
