David Bowie - Tonight LP (Test Pressing Including Proof Sleeve)

Fantastic to see super scarce original UK test pressing of the 1984 album from David Bowie. Released over 2 x single-sided LPs, the green labels are blank. The records are in stunning archive condition - showing few discernible markings, this indicates that this copy has been played sparingly. Matrix/runout (record 1): EL 2402271T A-2-1- NICKZ D and (record 2): EL 2402271T B-1-1-NICKZ D (Interestingly B-1 matrix unused for the commercial release). The inner sleeves have the matrix info handwritten and have dates stamped; one shows '31 AUG 1984', the other date cannot be made out. The commercial release for the album was 24 September 1984. Complete with foldover lyric insert. Housed with the original proof sleeve, this in VG+ condition with some light creasing.

Sold for £240
