Offered for sale is a Japanese pressing of the 1973 LP Aladdin Sane by David Bowie, complete with original obi.
Aladdin Sane was the sixth studio LP by David Bowie, released in 1973. The album reached #1 in the UK and #17 on the U.S. album charts, helped by the single “Jean Jeanie.”
Ziggy Stardust wrote the blueprint for David Bowie’s hard-rocking glam, and Aladdin Sane essentially follows the pattern, for both better and worse. A lighter affair than Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane is actually a stranger album than its predecessor, buoyed by bizarre lounge-jazz flourishes from pianist Mick Garson and a handful of winding, vaguely experimental songs.
