BOWPROMO was originally pressed in very small quantities in 1971 and it features alternate mixes of some of the songs that would eventually be released on the Hunky Dory album.
In August 1971, Bowies manager, Tony Defries had 500 promo LPs pressed to secure Bowie and fellow Mainman artist Dana Gillespie a record deal.
The A-side contained seven Bowie tracks, relatively new material at the time, five of which would appear on Bowies next album, Hunky Dory. On the B-side were five tracks recorded by another artist on the GEM roster, Dana Gillespie.
This RSD, one-sided release faithfully replicates the original promo featuring Bowies seven tracks plus five exclusive Bowie prints and new sleeve notes regarding the original promo.
