A fourth and final mixing session for BOWPROMO took place on 26 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 for seven hours. The BOWPROMO mixing sessions took place on 18, 21, 22, 24, and 26 July, after which the album was pressed.
