Title : The Prettiest Star / Conversation Piece

Manufacturer : Mercury

Serial : 6052 011


Sleeve - EX condition but please check the scans and make your own minds up!! The only thing to note is that there are two small 'A's written in black biro at the end of the title for some reason. 

Disc - EX condition, a few light surface marks from sleeve drag, labels are perfect 

Really, really great shape for such an old release - I paid a fortune for this nearly 30 years ago, advertised as MINT / MINT, it's not but I wasn't too unhappy when I received it.

If you notice any flecks when viewing the discs or dark areas on the cover I'm afraid that's due to my bad scanning! If the sleeves or discs are marked I will mention it above - sorry for the shoddy work!! 

I have been very lucky with previous sales from a few buyers that have spent a lot of their hard earned money on my records, if you are one of these great buyers and need a few days or so to arrange extra funds for these or future purchases please drop me a line through eBay, I am more than happy to accommodate and really appreciate your business and fully understand your obsession!!


As there are still a few Bowie pic sleeves to list (and hopefully sell) I am more than happy to combine postage for multiple items. I am also happy to wait if you are bidding on other items that finish a few days later, just drop me an email to let me know. Again any difference in postage can be refunded through PayPal or I'll send an amended invoice through

As some items are relatively low value if you want to save money and have the items despatched not recorded and without a signature I will do that but entirely at your risk. I will get proof of postage but will not accept responsibility if the the item goes astray within the postal system!


  • This item is from my personal David Bowie collection. Nearly all purchased through Record Collector magazine and more recently eBay
  • All pictures are of the exact item being sold.
  • All gradings are visual only, I no longer have a turntable and most of the collection was never played by me. (Picture cover obsessive!!)
  • Postage costs can be combined on multiple purchases - please await an invoice and I'll recalculate the postage or discount through Paypal.
  • Your item(s) will be shipped the next business day after I receive your payment.
  • Should your order exceed over £ 50.00 I will pay for additional insurance as required (UK only)
  • I always leave feedback on the day the item has been despatched. Please consider leaving feedback for me after you have had a chance to inspect and enjoy your purchase.
  • Please avoid questions on the last day of the auction. I might not have enough time to give you an answer before the auction ends.
  • All items despatched will be securely packaged and labelled - all deliveries will require a signature at your end. (see above also)
