Liza Jane hits half century today

on June 05, 2014

 

“Well, this little girl is so good to me”

 

They say it’s not polite to mention a lady’s age, but we’re sure you’ll forgive us in this particular instance.

Congratulations to David Bowie as he celebrates fifty years as a professional recording artist today. For it was on this day, Friday, June 5th 1964, that Vocalion Pop released a 45 with the catalogue number: V.9221.

That record was Bowie’s first ever release: Liza Jane/Louie, Louie Go Home, issued as Davie Jones with The King-Bees.

Bowie’s Deram debut is 47 today

on June 01, 2014

 

“When I Live My Deram”

 

David Bowie released his first album this day in 1967, albeit lacking the fanfare of Sergeant Pepper reportedly released on the same day by The Beatles, though Pepper was actually released a couple of weeks earlier. But that’s for Beatles’ buffs to explain.

This is a disservice that belies the fact that the record contained some classic Bowie recordings, including the likes of There Is A Happy Land, When I Live My Dream
