PLEASE READ BEFORE BIDDING:
Please read the entire auction listing, including shipping costs, before writing to ask a question.
OUR GOAL IS CUSTOMER SATISFACTION. In order to meet that goal, we will ALWAYS work with our customers on any concerns that may arise. In theunlikely instance that you feel the need to open a resolution dispute before working with us, you will immediately be blocked from any further chance to acquire the rare music we present each and every week.
Payment is required within seven days. We mail all paid items ONE WEEK after auctions end. Please keep in mind our listings are time consuming in detail and we are often traveling to find these gems, which at times delays the delivery schedule by a day or two. We ALWAYS process and ship every paid order. We have no control over parcels once they are mailed from our local Post Office.
Overseas mail to some countries (Italy, Russia, France, in particular) has became very slow. Opening a dispute for slow mail is unacceptable and will result in blocking the bidder. We work hard to provide excellent service as is represented by our 8000 plus positive feedback.
We use a VPI machine and thoroughly clean all records. Each order is carefully packaged by removing the LP from the jacket to avoid seam splits, use of 3 ml plastic cover sleeves over each LP and jacket, cardboard pad inserts, and placed in sturdy record mailers for safe delivery.
We take Customer Service seriously, and want you to be satisfied. Please give us 5 stars in each category through the feedback system, and we will be able to effectively continue to fulfill your passion for rare and collectible music! We have served thousands of satisfied customers - far more than our feedback records indicate - and our aim is to continue to do so.
Thank you for your interest and support.

(unless it's a similar perfect still sealed copy)
After a few years of cutting R&B covers and shouty Beatle/Who knock-offs, David Bowie graduated to the sort of dizzying musical experimentation which was soon to make him the stuff of legend. DAVID BOWIE with his toytown/popsike grooves, shows a Bowie far removed from of Davie Jones the King Bees or Manish Boys, well on his way to the eclectic luminary status he was soon to achieve. DAVID BOWIE is a surprisingly sprawling affair--composed entirely by the 19-year old Bowie, it reflects a drastic movement from the imitative, R&B-tinged early efforts to a staggering musical complexity and often-abstract poetic wordplay.
Embracing the hyper-dramatic efforts of then-man-about-town Anthony Newley ("Uncle Arthur," "Please Mr. Gravedigger,") Bowie works in bizarre, lyrical dreamscapes which must have made the young Robyn Hitchcock swoon--namely the stand-out arpeggiated guitar and medieval melodic tone of "Come And Buy My Toys." Soon enough, the cheeky musical theater atmosphere would disappear, and a parade of successive reincarnations would continue to redefine popular music for decades to come.
