Bowie's 'Space Oddity' Turns 40

David Bowie purists, unite! According to NME, David Bowie will release a 40th anniversary edition of his 1969 debut album, Space Oddity October 12. The special release -- originally issued as a self-titled effort in November 1969, only to be renamed Space Oddity in 1972 -- will be completely remastered and will also include several previously unreleased demos, b-sides, radio sessions and more! The 40th anniversary edition will also be available as a digital release and on 180 gram vinyl. Nice!
