1971’s Hunky Dory has long been, and remains, one of my very favorite Bowie albums. But after I heard the version with the bonus tracks, I found the original studio version to fall a little flat when compared with it’s demo counterpart. I love the acoustic jagged edges the demo leaves mixed in with Bowie’s vocals. Great stuff. Also, check out this cover Dinosaur Jr. did on the Whatever’s Cool With Me ep. In fact, this Dino version was my introduction to the tune back in high school.
