Back in January this year it was with great sadness that we wrote an article about the man who fell to earth, David Bowie. David died after an 18 month battle with cancer.
But today, although it may be a little bitter sweet, we now have a little good news.
David Bowie fans will be pleased to hear that a previously unreleased David Bowie Album is set to be available later on this year. The Gouster, was recorded back in 1970s but later morphed into the Young Americans and therefore it was never released. The release was announced via the official Facebook page and will be part of a box set.
In other WOW news, an original copy of David Bowie’s second album has become the most expensive record ever sold on record collectors site Discogs, ….fetching a whopping £4,722! The price of original albums does tend to sky rocket after the death of a singer, which might seem a little but morbid, however it is usually fans looking to reconnect with the first time they listened to a particular album.
Whilst £4722 is not a number to be sneezed at, shockingly records have sold for much much more. Ringo Starr’s copy of the Beatles’ White Album sold for £546,500.
A spokesman for Discog stated that they were unsure of the identity of the buyer but they hoped the collector would appreciate that they had bagged a little piece of history and that they would hope the record would be passed down from generation to generation.
