Limited 180 gram vinyl LP pressing. "Hunky Dory" is the fourth album by David Bowie, recorded in mid-1971 and released by RCA Records in December of the same year. This album marked Bowie's first release through RCA, a label he would be associated with for the next decade. "Hunky Dory" has garnered critical acclaim since its release and is widely considered one of Bowie's finest works. In fact, Time magazine included it in their "100 Best Albums of All Time" list in January 2010, with journalist Josh Tyrangiel praising Bowie's "earthbound ambition to be a boho poet with prodigal style." The album cover's style, designed by George Underwood, was influenced by a Marlene Dietrich photo book that Bowie brought to the photo shoot.

Other Information

The LP comes in a white poly-lined inner sleeve and includes a replica lyric sheet insert and a plain white (unlined) paper inner sleeve, presumably replicating the original inner sleeve. The front cover is laminated, while the back side is non-laminated, replicating the original release. Some copies may have a "Made in Germany" sticker on the rear sleeve, and the barcode is a sticker. Although 2015 is printed on the center labels and sleeve, the LP wasn't released until February 2016.

The catalog number appears as 0825646289448 (DB69733) on the spine, DB 69733 on the back cover, and as DBXL1 (DB69733) (0825646289448) on the labels. Track listings may vary between the insert, labels, and back cover for certain tracks.

The runouts are etched, and Optimal plating symbols are mirrored. A sticker on the front cover indicates that the vinyl is remastered heavyweight 180g.

The album was produced by Ken Scott, with assistance from an actor, and remixed at Trident Studios in London. The front cover artwork is credited to George Underwood and Terry from Main Artory (London). The copyright and licensing information is detailed on the rear sleeve, insert, and labels.

Overall, the LP presents a meticulous reproduction of the original release with additional details and credits provided for collectors and enthusiasts.
