Nicholas Pegg on Space Oddity

Join me and The Complete David Bowie author Nicholas Pegg for a lengthy ramble around 1969's 'Space Oddity' and discover why this 'debut' was in fact, probably the most raw, personal and heartfelt Bowie album ever made. From breakups to breakdowns, disillusionment, bitterness and resignation, rock, folk, country and space jams  - a relative flop on release (apart from the hit title track) this remains an extraordinary breakout album from an extraordinary fellow.
