The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (often shortened to Ziggy Stardust) is the fifth studio album by English musician David Bowie. It is a concept album telling the story of a fictional rock star named Ziggy Stardust. It peaked at No. 5 in the United Kingdom on the UK Albums Chart and No. 75 in the United States on the Billboard 200, then improved to a No. 21 position in the wake of Bowie's death.

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars has been consistently considered one of the greatest albums of all time, with Rolling Stone magazine ranking it the 35th greatest ever. It was ranked the 20th greatest album ever in a 1997 British survey, the 24th greatest of all time by Q magazine and one of the 100 greatest releases ever by Time magazine. A concert film of the same name, directed by D. A. Pennebaker, was recorded in 1973 and released a decade later in 1983.

Give me one year of Bowie and I would be eternally grateful. This is Five Years!

Beautifully curated with original artwork,
Comprehensive song collection from the era.

Includes:
-David Bowie (aka: Space Oddity) [1969]
-The Man Who Sold The World [1970]

Bowie: 5 Years can't be recommended enough.

Please take care of the contents, as the packaging is delicate in its original form.

This album reminds me of Bowie's horizontal collaborations with The Stones' Mick Jaggar.
