“I am a D.J., and I've got believers”
Taken from the brilliant Lodger album, David Bowie’s DJ was released as a 45 on this day in 1979.
The single was issued on green vinyl in the UK and is a very desirable collectors’ item for which you’re unlikely to get much change from fifty quid these days. Copies have actually sold for twice that on eBay in recent years.
DJ was accompanied by another delightfully mad David Mallet directed video, with Bowie rubbing shoulders and getting friendly with some of the wonderful people of Earl's Court in London.
