“Gotta get a word to Liza’s father”
No sorry, we’re not talking about Iman, we are celebrating 51 years since the release of David Bowie’s first ever 45. For it was on this day, Friday, June 5th 1964, that Vocalion Pop released a 45 with the catalogue number: V.9221.
That record, Liza Jane/Louie, Louie Go Home, was issued as Davie Jones with The King-Bees. Read more about the release in the piece we did for the 50th anniversary last year: http://smarturl.it/LJ50BNet
