“I keep a photograph, it burns my wall with time”
You may have noticed we announced the Conversation Piece 5CD box set yesterday and as promised, we will be sharing some of the images from the 120-page hardback book accompanying the set.
On the run up to its release on 15th November, we’ll be revealing some exclusive content that didn't make it into the book, such as the previously unpublished shot here taken by BBC photographer Harry Goodwin.
Harry was the Top Of The Pops in-house photographer from its inception in 1964 until 1973. He also took pictures of David during performances of Starman and The Jean Genie on the show. It's likely that this session took place while David was at the BBC’s Lime Grove studios filming his appearance for Top Of The Pops in early October, 1969.
You’ll find several more images from this session in the Conversation Piece book.
