David Bowie and the Buzz recorded two songs at Decca Studios in north London on Monday 14 November 1966.
Although this was the Buzz’s first time at Decca, Bowie had unsuccessfully auditioned there in 1963 with the Konrads for the Rolling Stones’ co-manager Eric Easton. Decca was located at 165 Broadhurst Gardens in West Hampstead.
The session was produced by Mike Vernon and engineered by Gus Dudgeon.
The Buzz’s keyboard player Derek Boyes was unable to attend due to suspected appendicitis, so his parts were overdubbed on a later date.
