DAVID BOWIE David Bowie (Rare 1969 UK Philips black & silver 9-track stereo LP, generally regarded as the first Bowie album proper, featuring Space Oddity and the early masterpiece Cygnet Committee, gatefold picture sleeve SBL7912)
See 'Additional Info' for further details on this legendary collectable Bowie record!

More Details
What we have here is one of the most sought after worldwide David Bowie collectables - the original pressing of what is generally regarded as the first Bowie album proper, performed by Bowie and a cast of uncredited 'Friends' including Herbie Flowers, Rick Wakeman, Moody Blues bassist John Lodge and [on 'Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud'] Mick Ronson.
Despite this stellar line-up and the success of the 'Space Oddity' single, the album was a commercial failure, hence it's scarcity today - it would be reissued in 1972 by RCA, but with a new title and a totally different sleeve

The colour gatefold sleeve on this issue is literally a work of art in itself. It features an image of Bowie on the front based on Hungarian-born artist Victor Vasarely's piece 'CTA 25 Neg', with George Underwood's drawing 'The Depth Of The Circle' on the reverse illustrating aspects of the album's lyrics. The lyrics themselves are printed across the centre of the gatefold.

The sleeve shows light print wear around the edges, although nothing which distracts from the superb artwork; there is a little edge scuffing and some light colour removal from the spine. Despite this, the interior remains excellent with all of its text legible and in all, the sleeve is free from splits and tears.

The label has some light spindle marks on otherwise clean labels, the vinyl retains a deep sheen with a few scuffs and faint hairlines in places but nothing that affects play and is graded Excellent.

This is an item that defines 'rare'. They just don't come along very often - this is only the fifth Excellent copy we've ever had!
