David Bowie (1967 Deram) DES 18003 - Stereo -
Original Canadian Pressing - Very Rare.
David Bowie's first venture into the LP format came in April of 1967 as a twelve track, self-titled American release on the newly formed Deram label. Both mono (DE 16003) and stereo (DES 18003) versions were available to the general public. A collection of music hall style ditties with a nod to Anthony Newley and the English theater. A very desirable package now, but not desirable enough then, to influence sales, the album sold poorly and is now extremely collectable.
A stereo only Canadian pressing
was issued alongside its US cousin and followed the same format and
catalogue number. This variation is even more difficult to come by as
sales were near non-existent.
