The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1LP)
A milestone in popular music, Bowie’s fifth studio album introduced the world to Ziggy Stardust!
Unlike its predecessor, ‘Hunky Dory’, Bowie’s fifth album was predominantly guitar based and set him on a path to stardom with his Glam Rock sound and style. You can hear Spiders From Mars guitarist Mick Ronson’s iconic sound on some of Bowie’s most enduring classics like ‘Ziggy Stardust’ and ‘Suffragette City’ and of course ‘Starman’.
In 2017, the album was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry which designates it as a sound recording that has had significant cultural, historical, or aesthetic impact in American life.
Featuring the 2012 remastered audio pressed on 180g heavyweight vinyl, ‘The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars’ is included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die, plus Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
