DAVID BOWIE Rock ‘N’ Roll Now: 1973 Japanese promotional-only 12-track LP sampler, originally issued to coincide with, & promote, Bowie’s first Japanese tour. The labels are custom silver on white with Japanese tracklist print. The gatefold sleeve is a unique screen printed design & opens to reveal a cool picture of David, a Japanese biography & brief discography with details of the forthcoming Aladdin Sane album on ‘May 25th’. Due to its matte finish, the cover shows some light discolouring & creasing from handling with no blemishes to the actual print. The vinyl grades VG/VG+ with a number of light paper scuffs, spindle & the odd faint hairline not affecting play, & the disc produces a dark translucent brown glow when held to light. This LP rarely appears for sale & is one of the top-rated Japanese Bowie collectables, full info here
