The groundbreaking album classic in a new edition! "Aladdin Sane", David Bowie's sixth album, was first published on April 13 in 1973 on the label RCA Victor. For Bowie, it was at that time an extraordinarily productive time. By "Ziggy Stardust" became Bowie in his native England to a sought-Star; the majority of the songs on the new album was written during an extensive tour of the USA. The studio recordings took place between October 6, 1972 and January 24, 1973 in London's Trident Studios, and in the RCA studios in New York and Nashville. It should be the last album recorded with Bowie "Spiders" in the occupation of Mick Ronson (guitar, piano, backing vocals), Trevor Bolder (bass) and Mick 'Woody' Woodmansey (drums). At the same time made her debut with the avant-garde jazz pianist Mick Garson a new one from Bowie's employees on this album. Bowie himself can be heard on the album not only as a singer but also as a guitarist, harmonica player, pianist and saxophonist. He also produced the album together with Ken Scott. Bowie called "Aladdin Sane" as "Ziggy goes to America". In places, the album is more rock than its predecessor - as for example in "Panic In Detroit". In the opener "Watch That Man", the influence of the Rolling Stones is obvious and there is also the cover version of "Let's Spent The Night Together", while the riffs of the UK-No. 2-single "The Jean Genie" more reminiscent of Muddy Waters. The "futuristic nostalgia" of "Drive-In Saturday" - the single reached number three in the UK charts - can, however, be traced back to the doo-wop music of the 1950s. "Cracked Actor" wrote Bowie after he gave a concert at the Hollywood Boulevard and transmit the impressions in a piece of pure rock and roll. The commitment of the remarkably talented Mike Garson influenced some of the key songs on the album, especially the title track, with its dissonant and improvised parts, the cabaret song "Time" and "Lady Grinning Soul" at the end of the album. More than 100,000 pre-orders there were at that time for the album, what it had not seen since the heyday of the Beatles. "Aladdin Sane" was also the first album of Bowie, which reached number one on the UK charts. The new remastered 40th Anniversary Edition of "Aladdin Sane" was headed by Ray Staff at London's Air Studios. Staff already had the original album manages studios in the Trident. Last year, he has been praised for its remastered 40th Anniversary Edition of "Ziggy Stardust" to the skies.
