As part of Amazon’s monthly $5 MP3 album deal for March 2012, David Bowie‘s Hunky Dory is on sale for only $5.
This wonderful 1971 album by music’s greatest chameleon, David Bowie, finds him in an early phase of his career. But, it is still a mélange of different sounds and styles that he would find himself interchanging as easily as shedding musical skin later on in his career. Hunky Dory, which contains one of his most well known songs, “Changes,” also has tunes as diverse as the cabaret style “Fill Your Heart,” the aching “Life on Mars?,” the steely knives pointed at the songs “Andy Warhol” and “Song for Bob Dylan,” the out and out rocking “Queen Bitch,” and the haunting “The Bewlay Brothers.”
Browse the main sale page to see the other 99 albums on sale for only $5 each in MP3 format through the end of March 2012.
