“I’ll leave my love between the stars”
Firstly, have a great rest of your birthday, Iman, from all of us here at DvidBowie.com, (still three and a half hours to go in New York).
On the occasion of Iman’s birthday we thought it appropriate to follow up on an item regarding her book: The Beauty of Color (2005), which we posted about recently.
The book was promoted with an accompanying very limited edition CD and our post was triggered by Iman’s own Instagram item regarding the book.
The same applies for today’s Bowie Collector feature, following another item on Iman’s Instagram back in February, wherein she credited the beautiful cover photography thus: “The front and back cover of my book I AM IMAN photo by Markus Klinko and Indrani 2000”.
As with The Beauty of Color, the promotion of I AM IMAN (2001) created another of the more collectable Bowie CDs, even if it seems easier to find than the aforementioned follow up. This is most likely down to the fact that a number of copies were available to purchase and win via giveaways through BowieNet.
I AM IMAN is a 5-track compilation CDR, containing the following tracks:
1 - The Wedding (David Bowie)
2 - Wild Is The Wind (Tiomkin/Washington)
3 - Loving The Alien (David Bowie)
4 - As The World Falls Down (David Bowie)
5 - Abdulmajid (David Bowie/Brian Eno)
This promo only private pressing (commissioned and compiled by Bowie), was signed by the man himself with copies of the book signed by Iman.
Again, only 200 copies of the CDR were made, making this another of the rarest Bowie collectables. Both the signed CDR and the signed book make the set and it is considered incomplete by collectors without one or the other.
Stay tuned for more Bowie collectables shortly and feel free to suggest anything you would like us to feature.
