Another Record Store Day treat

Following up yesterday's offering, here is a real rarity by the same Mr. Jones as yesterday's......act quickly, just to be safe.......
In August 1971, David Bowie's manager, Tony Defries had 500 promo LPs pressed to secure Bowie and fellow Mainman artist Dana Gillespie a record deal.
This promo album, featuring seven Bowie songs on one Side A and five by Gillespie on the flip, is often referred to as the BOWPROMO white label album.
It came in generic white outer and inner sleeves and had no printed labels, so its matrix number (BOWPROMO 1A-1/1B-1) is the only way to safely identify it.
This Record Store Day release faithfully replicates the original promo, with Bowie's seven tracks on one side, and adds five exclusive Bowie prints.
(Limited worldwide release of 15,000.) 

01 Oh! You Pretty Things (BOWPROMO Mix) 
02 Eight Line Poem (BOWPROMO Mix) 
03 Kooks (BOWPROMO Mix) 
04 It Ain't Easy 
05 Queen Bitch (BOWPROMO Mix) 
06 Quicksand (BOWPROMO Mix) 
07 Bombers (BOWPROMO Mix)
