David Bowie _ David Bowie [Deram Mono DML 1007] (incredibly rare 1st release)
A wonderful piece of vinyl history from arguably the greatest recording artist of all times, I still cannot believe that we are no longer going to hear any new music from David.
I will be listing a significant Bowie album collection with pretty much everything covered in the 70’s catalogue (including the USA 1st release and a later Argentinian release of this album). Please contact me if you have an item of interest from this period. I will be willing to end the auction if a sensible offer is received.
Pre-sale viewing is welcome. The LP looks and feels better in hand than the pictures portray. It is 40 years old and there is some inevitable age related wear and tear. FRONT COVER: The laminate still exhibits a nice gloss and there are no tears. There is the odd edge crease and the laminate has lifted in a few places most notably top left where a small piece of laminate has come away. The glue flap has come away from the front and rear cover and will need re-gluing; I have chosen not to do this. REAR COVER: There is slight feinting and yellowing from age related storage. There is sellotape discolouring along the top edge although the sellotape has been removed. There is a small 4mm tear on the top right edge. INNER SLEEVE: The inner sleeve is non-original although the protective type. VINYL: I stress I no longer own a turntable and cannot guarantee playback (from memory the vinyl played well). I can guarantee you an honest visual appraisal and a full refund if not entirely satisfied, please don't shoot me if it does not meet your expectations. I am being totally honest and items of high value can bring about disagreements in condition with some buyers expecting perfection. The vinyl looks clean and has a nice shine to it. At 12” face level there are only two visible marks. At 6” under light and manipulating viewing angles some scratching can be seen.
Please check out my excellent feedback and if you have any queries then please do not hesitate to ask. I offer a 100% no quibble refund if you are not entirely satisfied.

Without doubt this will be my best listing although there are some classics to come. I have never known so many watchers and questions, I do have one serious offer on the table - thank you. As requested I have posted a few extra photographs. I will upgrade the postage from standard second class at no extra cost (if you are within a reasonable distance I will probably suggest hand delivery/collection.
