More Info:

THE 'MERCURY' DEMOS are ten early Bowie recordings captured live in one take to a Revox reel to reel tape machine inBowie's flat in spring 1969, with accompaniment from John "Hutch" Hutchinson on guitar and vocals.


THE 'MERCURY' DEMOS set will come in a replica of the original tape box and will feature one LP, a print, two photo contact sheets, and sleeve notes by Mark Adams. The labels of the LP feature the same EMIDISC acetate styling as Spying Through A Keyhole and Clareville Grove Demos with the song titles in Bowie's own handwriting.
