From a boy who was 17 years old Davy Jones to David Bowie. A decision board that brought together all the early recordings of the early days when the charisma of the ancient times was teenagers was born. The first bullet of the new label “DBAS” to archive the precious sound source of Bowie is appearing.
The first memorable thing is a collection of sound sources that will be the first step for Bowie. Speaking of “THE EARLY DAYS” in the Bowie collection, it is generally general in front of “SPACE ODDITY” and is mainly around the 1st album “DAVID BOWIE” released in 1967 by Deram. However, the theme of this work is more early. The first band formed by Davy boy: From the phantom source of THE KONRADS, until 1966 singles just changed to “DAVID BOWIE”. It is a compilation covering every single board, acetate board, interview etc before contracting with Deram label. I supervised the global authority of Bowie research who has worked on numerous masterpieces at our shop. Various early sound source compiler existed before, but there was not thorough thing so far in terms of quality and collection as well. It is exactly one piece that will be the highest peak ever.
Such a work is divided into four major sections. Let’s introduce each separately.

【Extreme Initial Single (12 Songs)】
First of all, it is an extremely early single from 1964 to 1966 which was slightly 17 years old. Organizing ……

“Liza Jane”
● 1965: THE MANISH BOYS name
“I Pity The Fool”
● 1965: DAVY JONES (with THE LOWER THIRD) Name
“You’ve Got A Habit Of Leaving” “Can not Help Thinking About Me”
● 1966: DAVID BOWIE (with THE BUZZ) name
“Do Anything You Say” “I Dig Everything”

…… It is more than six sheets. All 12 songs, each containing a coupling song. Mostly based on Official’s early compilation CD “EARLY ON 1964-66”, the official board had replaced several songs with different take / mix. In this work, it is unified with the original single version, and it is recorded with that best master.
Also, Jimmy Page of young people also participated in THE MANISH BOYS ‘s single. I’m playing lead and guitar at “I Pity The Fool”, and rhythm guitar at “Take My Tip”.

[Another version of the extreme early single (5 songs)] The next section is a collection of different versions of the above single. “EARLY ON 1964-66” relationship is three songs, the normal version of the debut song “Liza Jane” whose pitch was out of order and vocals include “Take My Tip” and “I Pity The Fool” which are different take. “You’ve Got A Habit Of Leaving” was a version that was included in the compilation “Sheen Talmie” compilation “MAKING TIME” at that time, guitar and take are different from regular single. The final “Do Anything You Say” is another mix version.
Both are not raised, official CD · rarer official CD is the source. You can enjoy it with the highest quality not being bothered by needle punches and others.

【Demo / Acetate Panel Take (7 Songs)】
From here it is a take that was excavated from a maniac demonstration / acetate board. I will organize here as well ……

● 1965: Solo (3 songs)
“That’s Where My Heart Is” “I Want My Baby Back” “Bars of the County Jail”
● 1965: DAVY JONES (with THE LOWER THIRD) (4 songs)
“I’ll Follow You” “Glad I’ve Got Nobody” “Baby That’s A Promise” “Silly Boy Blue”

Except for the last two songs “Baby That’s A Promise” and “Silly Boy Blue”, recorded by Shell Talmy’s producer, careful selection from the CD version of “EARLY ON 1964-66” and even better sound cassette version. That “Baby That’s A Promise” “Silly Boy Blue” is selected from the best take of the boot leg board.

【Interview & Bonus (3 tracks)】
The last section is a historical record sound source. Interview sounds conducted in 1964 and 1966 and the phantom source “THE Never Dreamed” of THE KONRADS in 1963 which is the oldest Bowie. THE KONRADS was the first band for Bowie, formed in early 1962 by Dave Crook (drum) and Neville Wills (guitar). Then George Underwood (vocals) joined Davey who was George ‘s best friend and tenor sax was also busted.
After that, they repeatedly changed their members and recorded a rehearsal in 1963. The whole picture is not clear yet, but it was used for BBC news program only for 12 seconds. In this work, that 12 seconds is recorded as a bonus track.

It is a hidden treasure of 20 tracks and 27 tracks. The beat system and the blues roundup tune are perfectly fragrant in the mid 60 ‘s, and its singing voice is exuding a honest longing to a teenager who is a youthful person. This is the origin of the daughter charisma, David Bowie. It is interesting because it is different from the latter figure, it makes me happy because young voice already has the glow of rough stone. Early on 1964-66 “on both the sound side and the volume side It is a decision board which will also become a complete version. Please, enjoy with the permanent preservation press CD fully.

そんな記念すべき第一弾は、ボウイにとっても第一歩となる音源集。ボウイ・コレクションで“THE EARLY DAYS”と言えば、一般に『SPACE ODDITY』以前の全般であり、1967年にDeramからリリースされた1stアルバム『DAVID BOWIE』周辺がメインです。しかし、本作のテーマはもっと初期。ディヴィー少年が組んだ最初のバンド:THE KONRADSの幻音源から、“DAVID BOWIE”に改名したばかりの1966年シングルまで。Deramレーベルと契約する以前のあらゆるシングル盤、アセテート盤、インタビュー等を網羅したコンピレーションです。監修したのは、当店で数々の名盤を手がけてきたボウイ研究の世界的権威。これまでも様々な初期音源コンピ盤が存在しましたが、クオリティ面でもコレクション面でもここまで徹底したものはなかった。まさに、史上最高峰となる1枚なのです。


『Liza Jane』
『I Pity The Fool』
『You’ve Got A Habit Of Leaving』『Can’t Help Thinking About Me』
●1966年:DAVID BOWIE (with THE BUZZ)名義
『Do Anything You Say』『I Dig Everything』

……の以上6枚です。それぞれカップリング曲も収録した全12曲。ほとんどはオフィシャルの初期コンピCD『EARLY ON 1964-66』を元にしていますが、公式盤はいくつかの曲が別テイク/ミックスに差し替えられていました。本作では、オリジナルシングル・バージョンで統一し、そのベスト・マスターで収録しています。
また、THE MANISH BOYSのシングルには若き日のジミー・ペイジも参加。「I Pity The Fool」でリード・ギター、「Take My Tip」ではリズム・ギターを弾いています。

次のセクションは、上記シングルの別バージョン集。『EARLY ON 1964-66』関係は3曲で、ピッチが狂っていたデビュー曲「Liza Jane」の正常バージョンやヴォーカルが別テイクの「Take My Tip」「I Pity The Fool」を収録しています。「You’ve Got A Habit Of Leaving」は当時のプロデューサー:シェル・タルミーによるコンピレーション『MAKING TIME』に収録されていたバージョンで、正規シングルとはギター・テイクが異なる。最後の「Do Anything You Say」は別ミックス・バージョンです。


「That’s Where My Heart Is」「I Want My Baby Back」「Bars of the County Jail」
●1965年:DAVY JONES (with THE LOWER THIRD)(4曲)
「I’ll Follow You」「Glad I’ve Got Nobody」「Baby That’s A Promise」「Silly Boy Blue」

最後の2曲「Baby That’s A Promise」「Silly Boy Blue」以外はシェル・タルミーのプロデュースによる録音で、『EARLY ON 1964-66』のCD版や更に音の良いカセット版から厳選収録。その「Baby That’s A Promise」「Silly Boy Blue」はブートレッグ盤のベスト・テイクからセレクトされています。

最後のセクションはヒストリカルな記録音源。1964年と1966年に行われたインタビュー音声と、ボウイ最古となる1963年のTHE KONRADSの幻音源「I Never Dreamed」です。THE KONRADSはボウイにとって最初のバンドで、デイヴ・クルック(ドラム)とネヴィル・ウィルズ(ギター)によって1962年の初めに結成。その後、ジョージ・アンダーウッド(ヴォーカル)が加わったところでジョージの親友でテナーサックスも吹けたディヴィーが誘われました。

以上、20曲・27トラックの秘宝集です。ビート系やブルース丸出しな曲想はいかにも60年代中期の薫りが漂い、その歌声には10代の若者らしい先人への素直な憧れが滲み出している。これこそが希代のカリスマ、デヴィッド・ボウイの原点なのです。後の姿とは違うからこそ面白く、若々しい声にはすでに原石の輝きが宿っているから嬉しくなる。サウンド面でもボリューム面でも『EARLY ON 1964-66』の拡大・完全版ともなる決定盤。どうぞ、永久保存プレスCDで存分にお楽しみください。

Translated text:

Main press press CD is a big decision board which completes David Bowie of teenage. Of course, it is an unnecessary daimyo board such as a bonus. However, images are also left in that extreme early stage. Therefore, the best image collection that can meet young Burui figure is a bonus attachment decision.
Two images are contained in this work. BBC program “TONIGHT” to be the first television appearance and “THE IMAGE” will be the first appearance in the movie. Both are the definitive version recorded with the highest quality ever by the best master. Let’s introduce each individually.

【1964: TV first appearance interview】
The first thing that appears is the monumental picture in which the Bowie first appeared on a CRT. It is a BBC program “TONIGHT” recorded on November 24, 1964. At that time Bowie was about to transition from THE KING BEES to THE MANISH BOYS. I already had a debut single “Liza Jane”, but in fact it was an interview rather than a performance scene. It is recorded as a real voice of the age of 17 at the main press press CD, but this work is the oldest image that can be witnessed to that figure.
That content is also wonderful. It is a famous picture known as “Long Hair Interview” from Core Mania, the main theme is “long hair”. In Britain of the time, the long hair of a young man was regarded as a symbol of rebellion, and bashing was also strong. For such a situation Bowie launched “Association for Preventing Abuse of Men with Long Hair (SOCIETY FOR THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO LONG-HAIRED MEN)”. This video is an interview with BBC introducing such youth culture. Bowie at the age of 17 can be enjoyed with monochrome images, which was undoubtedly representative of young people influenced by the Beatles.
In the conversation with the interviewer, the names of the Beatles and Rolling Stones are also named, and the 17-year-old Divy Jones boys also said, “We like long hair and why red people attack because of long hair I do not understand. ” The message and topic themselves are perfect for the mid-60’s, but the real value of this video is a bit different. Unlike Japan’s “youth’s argument” such as seriousness / stick reading, the speech is full of humor. Although it is not playfully nervous, the cynical character unique to the UK comes and goes between the serious and humor boundaries. In modern times it is said as a proof image that “Bowie was successful in utilizing the media from a young moon” than the message itself which became erroneous error.

【1967: Short film of film first appearance】
Next on appearance is a super valuable picture which became the first step of “movie people Bowie”. It is the first appearance movie “THE IMAGE” which is not officially made into DVD.
It is a monochrome film of about 13 minutes by director Michael Armstrong, the line is not pear. When a young painter played by Michael Burn imagines a man (Bowie) with imagination, she suddenly appears in front of her as a real person. The painter who was driven by fear kills the man (Bowie), but when he kills many times he revives and appears in front of the painter. A horror story called ……… is on the desk of a painter who is confused by the fear of attacking.
In those days it was screened in between two porn movies and seems to be a work that teased audiences expecting pornography. Must-see, that acting. At that time Bowie was just 20 years old. Despite the absence of dialogs as described above, it expresses fear spectacularly with its expression, eyes, and behavior. While listening to the facts that have appeared, from that time on, there is a high consciousness for viewing angle elements and fictitious directing. Besides, it is not a peculiar pear, it is not a perfect silent film, it has become a video work firmly including sound effects and BGM. Although this work is a release for Bowie / Mania, its quality is a vintage movie fan also a thing to lower drinking.

A 17-year-old television first appearance interview and a 20-year-old movie first appearance. It is one piece that recorded both of them with superb quality. Young Divy Jones singing in the main press press CD is brilliant just by the appearance of a boy but it is also a piece that is more passionate about Bowie’s own image. And in modern times Bowie’s son Duncan Jones became a film director and attracting attention as a Hollywood nova, it is even a starting point beyond generations.
Of course, it will inflate the image of the main press CD a number of times, but this work itself is a historical and historical video work as well. Please join with the definitive main press press CD and enjoy the “Bowie of the 60’s” to your heart’s content.

本作に収められている映像は2種。テレビ初出演となるBBC番組『TONIGHT』と、映画初出演となる『THE IMAGE』。どちらもベスト・マスターによる史上最高峰クオリティで収録した決定版です。それでは、それぞれ個別にご紹介していきましょう。

まず登場するのは、ボウイがブラウン管に初めて映った記念碑映像。1964年11月24日に収録されたBBC番組『TONIGHT』です。当時のボウイはTHE KING BEESからTHE MANISH BOYSに移行した頃。すでにデビュー・シングル『Liza Jane』していましたが、実のところ演奏シーンではなくインタビュー。本編プレスCDにも17歳当時の肉声として収録されていますが、本作はその姿まで目撃できる最古の映像なのです。
その内容がまた素晴らしい。コア・マニアから「Long Hair Interview」として知られる有名映像で、メインテーマは「長髪」。当時のイギリスでは若い男性の長髪が反抗のシンボルとして問題視されており、バッシングも強かった。そんな世情に対してボウイは“長髪男性に対する虐待防止のための協会(SOCIETY FOR THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO LONG-HAIRED MEN)”を立ち上げた。この映像は、そんな若者文化を紹介するBBCインタビュー。いかにもビートルズに影響された若者の代表然とした17歳当時のボウイがモノクロ映像で楽しめるのです。

続いて登場するのは、“映画人ボウイ”の第一歩となった超貴重映像。オフィシャルでもDVD化されていない初出演ムービー『THE IMAGE』です。
