David Bowie

Catalogue No: DB001RS Artist(s): David Bowie Location: Foxgrove Road, Beckenham Date: April, 1969 Era: The 1960's Edition: Rockarchive Edition 100 Print type: Giclée Print Paper type: Archival 310gsm cotton based rag paper

David Bowie at his flat in Beckenham in 1969. This photograph was used as the cover to 'Lover To The Dawn', a 10-song acoustic demo tape recorded by David and his Feathers partner John “Hutch” Hutchinson. In addition to the ‘Space Oddity’ demo, the tape features early versions of ‘Janine’, ‘An Occasional Dream’, ‘Conversation Piece’, ‘Letter To Hermione’ (here called ‘I’m Not Quite’), and ‘Cygnet Committee’ (with very different lyrics and called ‘Lover To The Dawn’). There are also renditions of the Feathers staples ‘When I’m Five’, ‘Ching-a-Ling’, ‘Love Song’ and ‘Life Is A Circus’. It has been suggested that the demos were recorded on professional equipment at Mercury Records’ headquarters in Knightsbridge, but this seems highly unlikely considering Bowie’s apologies on the tape for the “very bad tape recorder and microphone” and for the noises coming from the piano teacher upstairs; the usual consensus is that the venue was his new flat in
Foxgrove Road

"Everyone looks so bad in their passport photos, so lets do a really bad one!" - David Bowie.
