40th Anniversary Heavyweight Vinyl & Hi Res Audio Edition. Here's the edition of Ziggy Stardust everyone has been waiting for since David Bowie executed the character onstage nearly 40 years ago. Originally released through RCA Victor on June 6, 1972, Ziggy Stardust was Bowie’s fifth album, co-produced by Bowie and Ken Scott. The album eventually peaked at #5 on the UK Album Chart. Its influence is immeasurable, as it converted legions of fans, becoming the zeitgeist and a major influence on the next generation, particularly to those involved in the punk movement. Famously, Bowie killed Ziggy at his peak at London’s Hammersmith Odeon, on July 3rd, 1973. Pop music was never the same again.
