Arnold Corns - Hang On Yourself / Man In The Middle - B&C CB 1889

Arnold Corns

Hang On Yourself / Man In The Middle

B&C : CB 1889 (45s)

RARE Bowie!

On seldom-seen original label almost pressed 3 years before it's 1974 "Mooncrest 25" reissue, that is also considered a Bowie essential.

The Arnold Corns were a band formed by David Bowie during 1971 this 45 being one of only two releases they had for this short lived Soho based UK label. Who were just starting to specialize in up and coming Rock bands

David Bowie wrote and produced both sides of this spectacular failure. It sold nothing in 1971, even though David Bowie sang vocals and played guitar. A 45 that also marked a strengthening of the Bowie / Mick Ronson relationship as they journeyed towards the groundbreaking Bowie period of "Spiders From Mars" & "Ziggy Stardust" with The Arnold Corns project, the springboard for Bowie’s inventive side to come to fruition.

Bowie took inspiration from Pink Floyd for this recordings but shimmers with Bowie characteristics, being an important crossroads in the birth of "Spiders" & "Ziggy" and ultimately leading to Bowie's worldwide success.

As Bowie mania becomes even stronger, records relating to his early development are becoming increasing difficult to secure.. as wise vinyl investors swoop on every opportunity.

Condition Report

near perfect vinyl, just a few very fine sleeve contact storage hairlines. Most probably unplayed before we lifted the sound file for this listing. As, both labels are perfect with no sign of spindle contact on the 4 prong centerpiece. Still housed in wavy top birth sleeve
