**IN STOCK NOW**
Originally issued in the UK via RCA on November 14, 1972, 'The Jean Genie' was the first single taken from his then still-to-be released album Aladdin Sane. Bowie was now a superstar, writing on the run while touring.
Bowie told NME in 1973 that, with the track, he "wanted to get the same sound the Stones had on their very first album on the harmonica." With its infectious heavy blues riff and its beat that made it at once in-time-yet-forever-out-of-kilter with glam rock, it became Bowie's biggest hit to date.
The b-side of this 40th anniversary version will have the audio from the recently-recovered BBC Top Of The Pops performance of 'The Jean Genie' from January 1973, which captures the blazing confidence of Bowie and the fabled Spiders from Mars [Mick Ronson, Trevor Bolder and Woody Woodmansey] at their peak.
With both versions remastered by original Trident engineer Ray Staff and superb, in-era shots to illustrate both sides of the vinyl, 'The Jean Genie' is available in a strictly limited run.
Whether his work is being used significantly in the London 2012 Olympic opening and closing ceremonies, or the media frenzy created around next year's retrospective at the V&A, David Bowie's influence is stronger today than ever. This edition of ‘The Jean Genie' is an appropriate celebration of one of the greatest singles from one of the greatest artists of all time.
