David Bowie – Space Oddity

March 10th, 2019 | by admin

On 2 February 1969, David Bowie went in to Willesden’s Morgan Studios to cut a new song, ‘Space Oddity’, with colleague John ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson (who sings the ‘ground control’ sections) for ‘Love You Till Tuesday’, a film that was being made by Bowie’s then manager, Kenneth Pitt. Bowie subsequently demoed further versions of the song in an attempt to secure a record deal, which led ultimately to a contract with Mercury/Philips and the world-famous hit version recorded on 20 June 1969. The February recording finally became part of Decca when Pitt sold the rights to Love You Til Tuesday to PolyGram in 1984.
