However, Pegg disagrees, writing that there's no evidence to support this claim and Farthingale herself has rejected this theory. On the surface, 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. The style of the album cover, designed by George Underwood, was influenced by a Marlene Dietrich photo book that Bowie took with him to the photo shoot.

So, he hired a different manager, began looking for a new label, and turned production reigns over to sound engineer Ken Scott of Abbey Road fame. To the rear its the same image and handwritten style track list and annotations, but no 'Mainmain' or 'Gem Productions' although 'Gem Productions' appears on the labels and the logo is on the insert.

Within the context of his career, it is considered to be the album where "Bowie starts to become Bowie", definitively discovering his voice and style.

Immediately before the vocal take, Bowie told Scott, "Don't listen to the words, they don't mean anything.

Kooks" is noticeably lighter than the two tracks it is sequenced between but, according to Pegg, ultimately "carries a hint of [the album's] preoccupation with the compulsion to fictionalise life, as Bowie invites his son to 'stay in our lovers' story'". In 2021, to celebrate the record's 50th anniversary, Parlophone announced a vinyl picture disc reissue of the album (2015 remaster), which was released on 7 January 2022. Holy Holy", recorded in November 1970 and released as a single in January 1971, was a commercial flop.

Scott accepted the position as a way to gain experience, although at the time he didn't believe Bowie would become a huge star. Parlophone should be ashamed of themselves [again] for another milk of the Bowie teat, and done so disgustingly shoddily. With Wakeman in the line-up, on 9 July Bowie and his band recorded two takes of "Bombers" and "It Ain't Easy", the latter featuring backing vocals by Dana Gillespie. M (Mint): The record itself is in brand new condition with no surface marks or deterioration in sound quality.

Although Bowie normally waited to name his albums until the last possible moment, the title "Hunky Dory" was announced at the John Peel session.
