Released in November 1969, David Bowie's second studio album 'Space Oddity' is often seen as the first example of the musician hitting his stride. The title track, an eerie acoustic song augmented by squiggles of stylophone and inspired by the stillness and isolation of Stanley Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey', gave Bowie a number 5 hit in the UK charts. The rest of the record is made up of stranger fare - the rough guitars of 'Unwashed and Slightly Dazed', the nine minute folk rock masterpiece 'Cygnet Committe' and 'Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud', which has the distinction of being Bowie's first collaboration with guitarist Mick Ronson, and includes a full orchestra.
