40th Anniversary DAVID BOWIE 7″ Picture Discs IN STOCK NOW!



John, I'm Only Dancing'John, I'm Only Dancing' was originally released on 1st September 1972 on RCA as the follow-up single to 'Starman', and reached number 12 on the UK charts, immediately becoming a live favourite with the fans, though it never appeared on one of Bowie's studio albums.

This double A side includes newly remastered versions of the original single version produced by David alone at Olympic Studios on June 26th 1972; plus a punchier new take, recorded in January 1973, with tighter guitar and sax played by Keith Fordham [often referred to by fans as the 'sax version'].  The image on the A-side features a shot from Mick Rock's original promo film for the original single version, while the AA-side displays an image taken by photographer Sukita at the Radio City Music Hall in New York in February 1973.


The Jean GenieOriginally issued in the UK via RCA on November 14th 1972, 'The Jean Genie' was the first single taken from his then still-to-be released album 'Aladdin Sane'.

This double A side includes a newly remastered version of the original single version; plus the audio from the recently-recovered BBC Top Of The Pops performance of 'The Jean Genie' from January 1973, which captures the blazing confidence of Bowie and the fabled Spiders from Mars at their peak.
