Notes

Issued on 3-pronged push-out centre blue Philips labels with silver print; housed in a generic Philips die-cut sleeve.
This issue doesn't state 'mono ▽' on either label side - until 1969 the presence of an 'F' in the matrix of UK releases indicated 7" 45 RPM Mono.
The B-side is the so-called 'acoustic version' of Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud.
No track times appear on this edition.
℗ 1969

I have an unusual version of this and have no idea how rare it is. It has Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud label on both sides although it does play Space Oddity. Not in good condition. Cheers

Edited one year ago
the cosmic-sounding intro of "Space Oddity" is due to the use of the Phrygian mode and Neapolitan chord

We have a variant of this 3 prong Philips no MONO label which has no MONO on A label as shown in your pic but WITH MONO on the B label

Has a Stereo version ever been issued apart from the Promo?
