David Bowie is the self-titled debut studio album by English singer-songwriter David Bowie, originally released in June 1967 via Deram Records.

Recorded at Decca Studios, London, and produced by Mike Vernon (John Mayall & the BluesbreakersEric ClaptonFleetwood Mac), David Bowie was influenced at this stage of his career by the theatrical tunes of Anthony Newley, music hall numbers by acts like Tommy Steele, some of the more whimsical and "British" material by The Kinks' Ray Davies, Syd Barrett's slightly cracked nursery rhymes for the early Pink Floyd, and the Edwardian flam shared by such contemporary songs as The Beatles' "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!".

Although the album bears little overt resemblance to the type of music that later made Bowie famous, such as the folk rock of "Space Oddity" or the glam rock of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars, some commentators have discerned embryonic themes that inform the artist's more mature work.

"We Are Hungry Men" is told by a self-styled "messiah" whose persona would reappear in different forms in the songs "Cygnet Committee" (from the album Space Oddity), "Saviour Machine" (from The Man Who Sold the World) and "Oh! You Pretty Things" (from Hunky Dory), as well as in the protagonist of The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.

This limited vinyl reissue includes remastered versions of both the mono and stero mixes of the album.

Check out the tracks "Sell Me A Coat", "Love You 'Till Tuesday", and "Rubber Band"

This double album 2LP record set is a reissue (July 2010) on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl featuring remastered audio in both mono and stereo mixes, housed in a gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves, pressed in Europe.
