''The Man Who Sold the World'' is the third studio album by David Bowie. It was originally released on Mercury Records in November 1970 in the United States and in April 1971 in the UK. The album was Bowie's first with the nucleus of what would become the "Spiders from Mars", the backing band made famous by ''The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars'' in 1972. Though author David Buckley has described the singer's previous record ''Space Oddity'' as "the first Bowie album proper", ''NME'' critics Roy Carr and Charles Shaar Murray have said of ''The Man Who Sold the World'', "this is where the story ''really'' starts". It has been claimed that this album's release marks the birth of glam rock. - Wikipedia
