Auktion: Bowie rare early paperwork

I am sorry I don't speak German!
I thought you might be interested in hearing about our latest auction.
We will be holding a Rock Legends auction on the 5th June which includes signed rare early paperwork from David Bowie’s original management company, MainMan, including a rare dress cover copy of the UK release of ‘The Man Who Sold The World’ together with the US cartoon version. I will paste the full lot descriptions below.
Commission bids can be placed on our website now at http://www.cooperowen.com and the auction will culminate with a live event at 23 Denmark Street, London on the 5th June at 4pm BST. Bids can also be placed on eBay at http://pages.liveauctions.ebay.com/catalogs/catalog5077.html.
If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to let me know.
Best wishes,

The tape is in superb condition with little or no shedding and plays back perfectly.

Lulu's 'The Man Who Sold The World'/'Watch That Man' single was released in January 1974 and was a UK No.3 hit single.

33 David Bowie press release for 'Memory of a Free Festival', June 1970
An original Philips UK Press Release for David Bowie's Memory Of A Free Festival single, prepared by Philips press officer Nick Massey.


The single, released on June 26th 1970, was the follow-up to Bowie's 'Space Oddity' hit single.
The lack of success for 'Memory Of A Free Festival' means that this single is now very valuable - this press release is even scarcer.

Antwort #2
Ein von David Bowie handgeschriebener Liedtext "Starman" ist für mehr als über 220.000 € versteigert worden. Wie das  Auktionshaus Omega Auctions mitteilte, erzielte das Manuskript bei der Versteigerung am Dienstag damit das Fünffache seines Schätzwerts.

Ersteigert wurde der Liedtext den Angaben zufolge im Auftrag eines Privatsammlers. Das Interesse an dem "historischen Erinnerungsstück" sei riesig gewesen, sagte Paul Fairweather von Omega Auctions. "Wir freuen uns sehr über den unglaublichen Preis und sind uns sicher, dass der Liedtext von dem Meistbietenden zu Recht geschätzt und gewürdigt wird."

Der Text auf einer DIN A4-Seite enthält handschriftliche Änderungen und Bearbeitungen Bowies, einschließlich korrigierter Rechtschreibfehler und Ergänzungen. Vor der Auktion war der "Starman"-Text in einem Londoner Museum ausgestellt.
