The 'Mercury' Demos


As part of the ongoing celebrations marking 50 years since David Bowie’s first hit, ‘Space Oddity’, and following the recent ‘Spying Through A Keyhole’ and ‘Clareville Grove Demos’ collections, Parlophone is releasing a further set of recordings known as 'The “Mercury" Demos’.

'The ‘’Mercury" Demos’ set will come in a replica of the original tape box and will feature 1 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 David’s own handwriting.
