David Bowie’s first known studio recording will be sold at auction after it was unearthed in the loft of a former band member.

The 1963 demo tape features a 16-year-old Bowie, then known by his real name David Jones, singing with his first band The Konrads at a record studio in Morden, south west London.

The demo was rejected by record label Decca and the tape of Bowie singing I Never Dreamed was never released.

It is expected to fetch over £10,000 when it is sold as part of a trove of memorabilia by former Konrads’ drummer David Hadfield in September.

According to auctioneer, Paul Fairweather, ‘for Bowie collector’s this really is a significant recording, completely unique and of great historical interest, being the earliest studio recording of a fledgling musician who would go on to super stardom’

The collection is set to go under the hammer in September at Omega Auctions in Newton-le-Willows.
