Product description

Product Description

In August 1971, David Bowie's manager, Tony Defries had 500 promo LPs pressed to secure Bowie and fellow Mainman artist Dana Gillespie a record deal. This promo album, featuring seven Bowie songs on one Side A and five by Gillespie on the flip is often referred to as the BOWPROMO white label album. It came in generic white outer and inner sleeves, and had no printed labels so its matrix number (BOWPROMO 1A-1/1B-1) is the only way to safely identify it. This Record Store Day release faithfully replicates the original promo, with Bowie's seven tracks on one side, and adds five exclusive Bowie prints.

When considering the rip off prices offered by some sellers remember this is a Ltd Edition of 15,000 copies!
This is not and will not be a rare item.

It's a beautifully packaged album and I like it. But the channels are flipped meaning the liner notes are wrong. Still, most people won't mind that, because it's a legendary piece of work from Bowie which shows how many of the songs evolved for Hunky Dory a few weeks later. Bombers is a great song as well, I sometimes wish he'd kept it on HD rather than Fill Your Heart!
I would have loved to hear Dana Gillespsie as well, the flip side of the original bowpromo.

Fantastic release of the very rare original and betters that by being carefully boxed ...the lp is in glossy plain white sleeve , wrapped in green tissue with a sticker with rough mix on the outside of the plain white sleeve, (the only one ive ever seen was Dana Gillespies copy with diff message on outside . Has stapled history of the promo and some glossy prints from the front cover sessions by Brian Ward . Its nice to hear this on vinyl (its been heavily bootlegged and is a nice heavy slab of vinyl . Its a well put together item ...pricey but id would worth it .
