Tape Containing Unreleased David Bowie Tracks Up For Auction


A tape containing unreleased tracks that David Bowie recorded for his debut album in 1967 will be auctioned on May 21 in England.

The boxed reel of 1/4" Ampex recording tape, which contains four tracks recorded by the English singer at Decca Studio 2 in West Hampstead, London, will be auctioned under the title "David Bowie 1967 Rejected Demos," auction house Omega Auctions said.

The four tracks, "Funny Smile," "Did You Ever Have a Dream," "Bunny Thing" and "Pussy Cat," were intended for use on Bowie's first album.

A digital copy of the recording will be included with the tape.

The auctioneers have pointed out that the demo tape is sold as an artifact only and no copyrights are included with the sale.

The starting bid is $3,904, and Omega Auctions estimates that the tape could be priced as high as £8,000 ($10,445) at auction.
