1972 David Bowie promo single with three 1971 songs on it: “Life On Mars” from Hunky Dory, “Moonage Daydream” was a 1971 single, and Bowie started performing “It Ain’t Easy” in concert in 1971 – the latter two of course reworked during the 1971 sessions for Ziggy Stardust

This fantastic Brian Ward photo of the pre-makeup Ziggy 1.0 was also used as the cover for the 1972 reissue of The Man Who Sold The World, with the 1971 “dress” cover not restored until 1990.

I think David Bowie and all those crazy bands in the 70s tried too hard to stick out. Why couldn't they just be chill and play? I guess I just don't like all the commotion.
