David Bowie – Unreleased “Station To Station” Color Album Cover Slick
An unreleased full-color album cover slick for David Bowie’s 1976 album Station to Station. Bowie first contemplated using this full color photograph for his album cover, but before releasing it changed his mind and switched to the well known black and white cover. A small number of color slicks have surfaced over the years. Album cover slicks were printed on thin paper and then pasted to blank cardboard jackets to produce album covers. This example was given by Michael Olsen, head of the Bowie fan club at the time, to a close friend (Olsen gave one at the same time to Recordmecca’s Jeff Gold, a well-known Bowie collector.) The original owner dry mounted the slick and framed it; we obtained it directly from him. It measures 27 5/8″ x 16 1/4″ and is in excellent condition; there is some extremely faint toning from exposure to light, barely visible around the edges formerly covered by the frame. At the top is printed “Queens Lithographic Corporation 4th Proof” (Queens were album cover printers) and at the bottom are the printers’ registration marks. A rare Bowie collectible with impeccable provenance and Recordmecca’s written lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
