    David Bowie, signed gig ticket, Nottingham 1997. As a direct result of this meeting, Bowie added “Waiting for the Man” to the set the following night. That didn’t happen often, believe me.

    David Bowie, various complimentary tickets for TV recordings, 1995-2000. The one second from the bottom is particularly rare. An Italian Sunday afternoon football pundit show, with no official places allocated to the general public.

    David Bowie, unused pit ticket for 50th anniversary gig, Madison Square Garden, NYC, January 1997. Unused because I was the only fan who gained access to the final dress rehearsal/soundcheck on the afternoon of the show.

    I’d like to share some of the rarest Bowie CDs from my once-huge collection. Luckily, these were stored separately from the main collection, and so escaped the flood that followed Hurricane Katrina.

    Let’s start with the DIR Glass Spider Concert Special. I believe 300 of these sets were distributed in 1987, with the majority returned to DIR after broadcast. Hence, very rare.

    Arguably the rarest Bowie CD ever to be distributed. Only ten of these CD-Rs were made. Two each were sent to the five U.K. radio stations that refused to playlist the “Buddha of Suburbia” single, due to the lyrics containing the word bullsh!t. This censored version of the song has the offending word digitally reversed. I bought this in 1993 from the record company rep. I’ve only ever seen one other copy offered for public sale.

    The original All Saints CD, distributed as Xmas gifts by Bowie in 1993:

    Unusual one, this. Not strictly official, but not a bootleg either. These CD-Rs, including the (basic) artwork, were made by Mark & Lard themselves in 1999. It is the entire two hour show, including the Bowie session and interview, plus all the other nonsense, recorded straight from the studio desk. So, better quality than the FM broadcast that commonly circulates. I’ve never seen another copy.

    Sounds Great transcription disc of Bowie on the Billy Bragg show. No idea how many of these were made, but it can’t be many. I’ve never seen another copy offered for sale.

    Promotional CD-R for the I Am Iman book, 2001. Just a couple of hundred of these were made, and signed by Bowie on the inside of the insert.

    Italian CD of the Outside album, with additional booklet, in Italian. This was hard to find even at the time. I want to say they only made 1,000; something like that.

    Prince - "The Black Album" LP
    So, last week we saw another significant, and extremely rare find pop up out of the blue. My friend, and collector Jeff Gold who owns the superior www.recordmecca.com was contacted by an old colleague from Warner Bros, who had quite miraculously 'found' a small number of perfectly sealed copies of Prince's destroyed Black Albums .. These were all pressed and printed and ready to be released in 1987, when Prince turned on a dime, and demanded every copy everywhere be destroyed, because the LP was "evil". With a week to go, this was nearly impossible, yet very few at all made it...
    Last week Jeff sold two or three on consignment for his WB friend. This is easily one of the rarest albums in existence. Sealed copies went for $15,000. immediately and I think there was still one possibly available for $20,000.
    That's what I love about vinyl ... it's always something! Still, as I recall the last sealed Stereo Livingston Beatles Butcher hit $125,000. and that was a number of years ago ... Ya gotta love it!

    Bob Dylan - "Must Be Santa" / "Twas The Night Before Christmas"
    U.S. Columbia Records sealed promotional 45 single and PS.
    A wonderful surprise indeed ... a Christmas Album from Bob Dylan.
    A faithful realistic take, with a wonderful reading taken from the Theme Time
    Radio Hour radio show on side B of "Twas The Night Before Christmas".

    Thanks. This is just the few bits I have left. I must have had 30-40 Bowie autographs at one point. The signed posters were the best. Imagine what they would be worth today.
