Item Description

DAVIE JONES WITH THE KING BEES - LIZA JANE - LOUIE, LOUIE GO HOME This single was the first recording to be released as a single by David Bowie, but under the name Davie Jones with The King Bees.
It was recorded during a 7-hour session at Decca Studios in West Hampstead, London in 1964 when Bowie was 17 years old.
This 100 genuine 1964 pressing is a genuine UK DEMO 45 on the Decca-pressed Vocalion Pop label: V.9221 Machine stamped matrix numbers: CPDR-33318-T1-1C CPDR-33317-T1-1C Counterfeits copies have hand-etched matrices.
Earliest possible Decca stamper codes: 1/B 1/B Housed in its original plain brown paper sleeve.
CONDITION Disc Labels: EXCELLENT As you can see, the original centre is absent but both labels are otherwise clean bright.
The only blemish is a small sliver of missing paper in the 2 o clock position on the Liza Jane label.
Visual: EXCELLENT Both deep-gloss playing surfaces are clean unworn with just a small handful of very light paper scuffs in strong daylight.
Closer examination beneath halogen light reveals little more than a few light hairlines and a sparkling rainbow shine.
Both sides of this rare disc lie 100 flat on the turntable when playing.
Sound Quality: EXCELLENT This disc has not been played very much at all and the silent run-ins explode in to a powerful unworn sound, is free from any noticeable audible faults or wear on either side.
This item is located in and will be shipped from AUSTRIA via trackable insured airmail which to the UK is 12 GBP Graded strictly conservatively in strong daylight directly beneath a halogen light to UK RECORD COLLECTOR standards We listen to every record we sell in its entirety on an EMT 950 transcription turntable fitted with a TSD 15 cartridge All images in this listing have been taken by ourselves and are of the actual item for sale Each record is packaged in custom-made record mailing boxes to ensure it arrives with you in the same condition it left us For more information on our grading/packaging policy, please see our About Me page If you would like to get the best price for your rare records, why not let us do all the work for you.
