David Bowie is a true pop chameleon, changing colours to suit his environment; but like the creature itself he does this out of necessity and compulsion. Already with Hunky Dory Bowie shows his habit of shape-shifting at least in terms of image. The music on this 1970 album kicks off one of the artist's best singles, "Changes," a sly and bratty farewell to the hippie era and an evaluation of all things glam. This album is part of EMI Records' re-release campaign, offering all of Bowie's discs in remastered and enhanced format. This latter element allows fans to jump from disc to the Internet where they arrive at Bowie's site and beyond.

Editorial Notes

This is an enhanced audio CD which contains regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files. Personnel: David Bowie (vocals, guitar, saxophone, piano); Mick Ronson (guitar); Rick Wakeman (piano); Trevor Bolder (bass); Mick Woodmansey (drums). Digitally remastered by Dr. Toby Mountain. Subdued and acoustic, HUNKY DORY was the calm before the storm for David Bowie, who would explode a year later with ZIGGY STARDUST. This was Bowie in transition--hinting at his love for the theatric ("Life On Mars?"), and showing off his ability to suss out a generation's evolving self-obsession ("Changes"). HUNKY DORY was also a tour of the posters framed on young Bowie's impressionable walls. His obvious romance with pre-punk New York City is evident in "Andy Warhol," and his fascination with the public-private schism shows up in "Song For Bob Dylan." In hindsight, "Dylan" seems an introduction to Bowie's idea that a rock performer needs an alter ego. He was preparing for his transformation into Ziggy Stardust.
