“Changes” was first released in January 1972 and was the first of two singles taken from the album Hunky Dory.
The AA-side for the 2015 picture disc is ‘EIGHT LINE POEM (GEM PROMO VERSION)’ which is making its official debut with this picture disc.
“Collectors of the 40th anniversary series of picture discs (which celebrate the original RCA releases of Bowie’s singles), have long bemoaned the absence of ‘Changes’ from the series on account of it being the first Bowie single on RCA,” reads a press release. “… it gives us great pleasure to finally announce this release.”
Also available on Record Store Day will be a limited edition white/clear vinyl ‘Side By Side’ 7″ edition of “Kingdom Come”. One side features the original 1979 Tom Verlaine version of the track while the second side features the Scary Monsters (And Super Creeps) version.
Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. The 2015 Record Store Day will take place on April 18th.
