A third mixing session for BOWPROMO took place on 22 July 1971.

BOWPROMO was a promotional album created by David Bowie’s then-manager Tony Defries in August 1971, in an attempt to secure record deals for Bowie and fellow singer Dana Gillespie. The album featured seven early mixes of songs recorded for Hunky Dory on side A, and five recordings by Gillespie on the other.

This session lasted three hours. More followed on 24 and 26 July, after which BOWPROMO was pressed.
