Item Description

DAVID BOWIE

BY

DAVID BOWIE

ORIGINAL 1969 

NEW ZEALAND 

PHILIPS RECORDS


This is an incredibly hard pressing to find. This is from NEW ZEALAND and comes in the seldom seen semi Flip back Gate Fold sleeve as you will see if you double click the pictures. 

AND I WANT ALL BIDDERS TO DOUBLE CLICK THE PICTURES 

BECAUSE THIS SLEEVE HAS DAMAGE. There is a 2 inch tare on the bottom of the spine. Half way up the spine there is a hole + damage. The front has a tiny piece of sleeve damage bottom right corner . On the inside of the gate fold there is some ink where someone has scribbled over a name. Apart from that lot, its perfect !  The labels are very good and they are really lovely deep groove Philips labels with the typical Silver typeset on the black background . Side two does have a mark on it but its still very respectable. The vinyl has a few wispy hairlines but there have no effect on the playing .The record plays entirely and all the way without jumps skips or sticking. In the background and the dead 

wax areas you can hear slight background static noise for but it does not spoilthe listeners enjoyment and its been my experience over the years that this sort of static noise can actually play out the more you play the record. I have not played this LP much chiefly cos I have a lot of LPs and only about 6 hours a week to devote to listening . Id give it 8.5 out of 10 for the playing of the 47 year old record. Testament to how hard it is to find one of these is staring you  RIGHT IN THE FACE !

 In all my years collecting , constantly up grading, this one right here

is the best one that I ever came across. THIS IS AN EXCEPTIONALLY DIFFICULT LP TO LOCATE. AN ORIGINAL NEW ZEALAND DAVID BOWIE PHILIPS LP !

Im test playing this right now. There is a joiner building me a disabled ramp for my 15 year old Golden retriever (she cant go down steps any more). He has just said "Alan, WHAT A SONG" (Space Oddity) . I said "thats the worst one on the whole LP". Time will tell ..........

Maisie`s ramp is now made ........The joiner agrees.

A very rare pressing of the best acoustic

LP ever made.

DAVID BOWIE.
