David Bowie is the self-titled debut studio album by English musician David Bowie, released on 1 June 1967, on Deram Records. Its style and content bears little overt resemblance to the type of music that he was later known for, such as the folk rock influenced "Space Oddity" or the glam rock of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.
Released as a companion compilation to 1981's David Bowie - Another Face and designed to cover the remaining recordings previously released by the Decca group, this collection includes two recordings from that earlier release and omits one recording that is on neither collection (album version of Rubber Band).

Image caption David Bowie: One of the defining artists of his generation. It's one year since music legend David Bowie died of cancer. The musician died two days after his 69th birthday, having kept his illness hidden from everyone except his family and closest collaborators. For his final album, Bowie dispensed with his regular band and hired a group of young jazz musicians to push his music in a new direction. It was adventurous and exciting, but the star wasn't sure how fans would react. The album's artwork, which presents a single black star on a white background, is also loaded with symbolism.
You know, he called that record plastic soul, but no one will dare call it plastic soul now," Carlos Alomar, David Bowie's longtime guitarist, says of the newly unearthed album The Gouster, out today as part of the spectacular Who Can I Be Now? (1974-1976) box set. "Why? Because it came from the soul of David Bowie. You can't call it plastic soul. It's the perfect soul album. But at the end someone shouted, 'Play it again!' And he got this huge grin on his face and said, 'Really?' And everyone screamed, 'Yes!!' And he played it again, and that started the party. Shortly after that evening, Bowie and his band left for the second leg of his Diamond Dogs tour-now dubbed Soul Dogs-and Visconti headed to London to mix The Gouster. But Bowie wasn't finished.

Best David Bowie Albums interactive top ten list at TheTopTens®. Astonishingly good album. You like David Bowie? His early work was a little too jazzy for my taste, but when Hunky Dory came out in '71, I think he really came into the mainstream, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Freddie Mercury and Alice Cooper, but I think Bowie had a far more flamboyant, androgynous sense of style. Second most underrated album, with Lodger being the first I like the song Everybody Says Hi.
David Robert Jones (8 January 1947 – 10 January 2016), known professionally as David Bowie (, BOH-ee), was an English singer-songwriter and actor. He was a leading figure in the music industry and is considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century, acclaimed by critics and musicians, particularly for his innovative work during the 1970s. The character was spearheaded by the success of his single "Starman" and album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, which won him widespread popularity. In 1975, Bowie's style shifted radically towards a sound he characterised as "plastic soul", initially alienating many of his UK devotees but garnering him his first major US crossover success with the number-one single "Fame" and the album Young Americans.
