Aladdin Sane is the sixth album by David Bowie released in 1973 and is the follow-up to his breakthrough The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.  It was the first album he wrote and released as a bona fide rock star.

Aladdin Sane was one of six Bowie entries in Rolling Stones list of the 500 greatest albums of all time (at #277) and ranked No. 77 on Pitchfork Media's list of the top 100 albums of the 1970s.

The majority of Aladdin Sane was recorded at Trident Studios in London in January 1973, between legs of Bowie's US Ziggy Stardust tour. 

Aladdin Sane featured a tougher rock sound than its predecessor Ziggy Stardust, particularly on tracks like Panic in Detroit (built around a Bo Diddley beat) and Bowie's breakneck version of the Stones' Let's Spend the Night Together.

The album was also notable for its exploration of unusual styles such as avant-garde jazz in the title track and Brechtian cabaret in Time. Both numbers were dominated by Mike Garson's acclaimed piano work, which also featured heavily in the faux James Bond flamenco ballad Lady Grinning Soul, inspired by singer Claudia Linnear.

Two hit singles that would be included on the album preceded its release, The Jean Genie and Drive-In Saturday.

Aladdin Sane debuted at the top of the UK charts and reached No. 17 in America, making it Bowie's most successful album commercially in both countries to that date. The album is estimated to have sold 4.6 million copies worldwide, making it one of Bowie's highest-selling LPs.

This is pressed in Europe on 180 Heavyweight Vinyl using the 2013 Remaster, with a Gatefold Sleeve and Inner Picture Sleeve replicating the original artwork, including fanclub form.
