DAVID BOWIE "Suffragette City" - Rare Original Handwritten Lyrics

$10,500.00

Sale price Regular price $3,375.00

A rare piece of history, Davis Bowie’s "Suffragette City" song lyrics from the 1972 album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. 

 

Recorded on 4 February 1972, towards the end of the Ziggy Stardust sessions, "Suffragette City" features a piano riff heavily influenced by Little Richard, a lyrical reference to the book and film A Clockwork Orange and the sing-along hook "Wham bam thank you ma'am!".

 

Before recording it himself, Bowie offered it to the band Mott the Hoople if they would forgo their plan to break up. The group refused, but recorded Bowie's "All the Young Dudes" instead

 

This signed original copy of the song lyrics is custom framed with laser-cut lettering and laser-etched nameplate.
