David Bowie and the Buzz recorded demos at Regent Sound Studio in London on Tuesday 22 February 1966.
Among the songs recorded was ‘Do Anything You Say’. Tony Hatch, who had produced Bowie’s previous single ‘Can’t Help Thinking About Me’, attended the session and decided it should be Bowie’s next single.
‘Do Anything You Say’ was recorded properly on 7 March 1966 at Pye Studios in ATV House, 40 Bryanston Street, London. It was released as a single on 1 April.
