An unreleased song by David Bowie recorded in 1965 has been discovered and is expected to sell for thousands of pounds at auction.
David Bowie’s song I Want Your Love And The Lower Third was written by John Dee and Jack Tarr and appears on the acetate disc pictured above.
At the time, Bowie was collaborating with American record producer Shel Talmy, and according to Shel Talmy’s publishing database and archives, the record was produced by him as well.
The band were hired to do a demo of the song and it is described as “a The Who style assault with sharp guitars and distinctive David Bowie vocals.”
The acetate was taken from the archives of one of the UK’s largest publishing houses.
The auctioneers say it has probably never been played so far and is in excellent condition.
It is expected to reach Â£ 8,000-12,000 and will be auctioned off in auction houses in Wessex on Thursday.
A spokesperson said: âThis unreleased, unreleased David Bowie recording has come to light through incredible archival collection and is by far the best of the bunch.
âThe seller bought the physical music archives of one of the biggest publishing houses in the world and therefore unearthed a series of incredible demos and unreleased tracks from huge artists.
âIt takes months of work to go through the databases to get the information, but we’ve really found the cream of the crop. ”
