Recording: Come And Buy My Toys, Bunny Thing

The fifth recording session for David Bowie’s debut album took place on Monday 12 December 1966.

Two songs were recorded: ‘Come And Buy My Toys’, and the unreleased ‘Bunny Thing’, a beat poem parody which Bowie intended for the album.

Joining Bowie and bass guitarist Dek Fearnley was session guitarist John Renbourn, who played on both songs. Renbourn joined Pentangle shortly after the session.

As with the rest of the album sessions, it took place at at Decca’s Studio 2 in north London. Mike Vernon was the producer, with Gus Dudgeon engineering.
