DAVID BOWIE ROCK N’ ROLL WITH ME – OLYMPIC STUDIOS REHEARSAL TAPE ! Description:
DAVID BOWIE ROCK N’ ROLL WITH ME – OLYMPIC STUDIOS REHEARSAL TAPE. A boxed 2-inch by 10.5 inch reel of magnetic tape containing several partial and complete rehearsal takes of the song "When You Rock'n'Roll With Me", recorded on 9th January 1974 during sessions for the Diamond Dogs Album. The recording is excellent quality and these incredible sounding stripped down versions are unheard and have never been released. The tape features Bowie pausing frequently to direct the musicians – in total there are six different takes with 3 being complete. The label lists a final version as "MASTER" but this is no longer present on the reel, presumably having been spliced off to be compiled with other album master tracks, possibly for further overdubbing etc. Provenance: The vendor acquired the tape following his involvement in the sale of Olympic Studios to Virgin in 1986/87 – when the studios were being reconstructed notices were sent to record labels and related parties giving them a certain time period to collect their tapes before being disposed of. This tape along with many others were not collected with many being destroyed. **The tape is sold as an artefact only and does not include any copyright.**
