RARE and CLASSIC original UK advanced promotion copy45 from 1966
RARE RARE RARE RARE!
This is from my own
collection and has been in my possession since the very early 1970's
I am not a dealer, I am
not an expert, but as a teenager I worked in a record shop and I do have a
large trunk full of LPs and singles most bought new between 1963 – 1983. Rather
reluctantly I need to downsize my collection so, in no particular order, here
we go. This won’t be a quick job, (they will all be checked first) and some I
know are ultra rare: Doowop, Rockabilly, and plain bizarre!
I try to describe
accurately and honesty all items I offer for sale, if you are unsure or want
more information please ask.
I will mention all
defects or flaws I am aware of.
If I miss anything it’s
not deliberate and I offer a money back guarantee. Check my feedback and bid
All pictures are of the
actual item and not digitally improved.
Please assume all
records I offer DONT jump or stick unless I say they do. If they do on your
equipment, I won’t argue - just send it back for a refund. I am NOT liable for
return postage or other costs.

USE OF DESCRIPTION
Surface Marks = Superficial, usually light marks, hairlines or light scuffs that
Scratch = a needle mark that goes below the record’s surface, some will
sound, some will not, my play-grade will inform.
Original = a record that has been pressed with the recognised first label
design, does NOT neccessarily mean a very first pressed record.
First Pressing = A record that I believe to be a genuine very first pressed
record. I may be wrong so that’s why I will state the stamper and matrix
numbers if at all possible, for those who know what they mean, the information
is there for the collector to decide.
Surface Sound = Mild, light sound, usually light crackle or similar.
Distortion = Break up of the actual sound caused by groove wear or damage
from a chipped stylus. The symptoms of distortion are high frequency clipping,
moderate constant crackle or an echo type sound quality.
Some I will. Some I wont. I’m
copying the tracks I like on to CDs. Others I’ll listen to extracts only. Some
I cant bear to listen too and many I just haven’t got the time to play-grade.
If there are suspect visual marks I’ll usually play grade and describe any

From another sellers description (sold in 2010):
"It goes without
saying that this is an impossibly hard to find 45
Released as David Bowie, his backing band 'The Buzz' remained uncredited
on this 45. -This we suppose may possibly have been due to the fact that in
1966 Columbia also released a 45rpm by a band who were also called 'The Buzz' -
They also released only one single as well i.e. - "You're Holding Me Down"
/ "I've Got A Buzz"... ( a very cool 45 ). But this other 'Buzz' came
from Scotland. It was a completely different and unrelated band and it did NOT
feature David Bowie.
David Bowie's 'THE BUZZ' formed around February 1966. The line up consisted of
David Bowie on vocals guitar and saxophone, John 'Hutch' Hutchinson on guitar,
John 'Ego' Eager on drums, Derek 'Chow' Boyes on keyboards, and Derek 'Dek'
Fearnley on bass guitar.
Derek 'Dek' Fearnley left the band later that year in June and was replaced by
Billy Gray ('Haggis'), who also left the group around November time after which
the band then apparently continued for a while as a 3 piece.
Presumably inspired by hearing this 45 ~ good old Radio London sponsored half a
dozen Sunday Afternoon shows at the London's famous Marquee Club in Soho, that
ran from April through until mid June called 'The Bowie Showboat'...
Although we auctioned another rare and early David Bowie demo quite recently,
we still like to think that this is actually his best early single...
A very rare opportunity to grab this rare and highly sought after David Bowie
45 in it's demo form and it would make a perfect addition to any serious
DJ or David Bowie collection -
Don't miss it !
Although we always welcome new ebayers - Due to the rarity of this particular
45 we request that
if you have under 10 positive feedback that you please contact us before
placing a bid on this item... "
