I bought a mint sealed copy of this and there is a scratching sound on side 1 Changes track above Bowie's left eye. Defries then paid off Bowie's debts to Mercury through Gem Productions, and the label surrendered its copyright on David Bowie (1969) and The Man Who Sold the World. It was described by Bowie at the time as "how some see BD", and its title is a parody of Dylan's 1962 tribute to folk singer Woody Guthrie, " Song to Woody". The remasters of Bowie's studio albums since around 2015 have just been awesome; bringing a newfound wealth of colour and sound to some already legendary LPs.

The lyrics focus on the compulsive nature of artistic reinvention and distancing oneself from the rock mainstream. As a co-producer Bowie took an active interest in the album's sound and arrangements, an about-face from his generally hands-off attitude during the Man Who Sold the World sessions. Bowie and his new backing trio, soon to be named the Spiders from Mars, played for the first time on 3 June on BBC DJ John Peel's radio programme In Concert.

Erlewine wrote: "On the surface, [having] such a wide range of styles and sounds would make an album incoherent, but Bowie's improved songwriting and determined sense of style instead made Hunky Dory a touchstone for reinterpreting pop's traditions into fresh, postmodern pop music".Already owning Hunky Dory on vinyl and knowing that picture discs do not provide the best sound quality this picture disc was purchased for display as a collectors item and particularly for the poster. On the record’s opening track (“Changes”), Bowie immediately throws down a gauntlet with the lines “Ooh, look out you rock ‘n’ rollers” and “Pretty soon now you’re gonna get older” accompanied by the repeated incantation for his audience to “turn and face the strange. In 1999, the original album was rereleased on CD through Virgin/EMI with 24-bit digitally remastered sound.

The same year, Consequence of Sound ranked the album number 18 on their list of the 100 greatest albums of all time.In 2016, Billboard 's Joe Lynch argued that Hunky Dory provided the "blueprint" for lo-fi indie pop records for the next 25 years, citing Ariel Pink as an artist influenced by the album.
