Recording: 1984

David Bowie and the Spiders From Mars recorded an early version of ‘1984’ on 19 January 1973.

At the time Aladdin Sane was still incomplete, suggesting that the song was a possible contender. It was not to be, however, and the song was re-recorded again later in 1973 and in early 1974.
