You can expect the prices for the items listed below if you are selling privately. If you sell to a dealer or shop expect less than half of the prices listed below.

All prices are on the basis that the item is in mint condition.

All items UK releases unless stated.

List also includes CDs, & 12"s.

Prices are in UK sterling and US dollars.

It has always been a mystery to me as to why the prices of Bowie's record output aren't on the same level as, say, The Beatles. For me, his back catalogue is of equal importance and some of it is as desirable as anything the Fab Four put out. After all, is he not the Elvis of his generation? By that I mean for those growing up in the 70s & 80s, Bowie spoke to us and touched us in a more profound way than the icons that came before. Especially for any of us growing up in the backwaters of South London where the great man grew up. It was hard to believe that such an icon grew up on those same drab streets. Bowie had been here! Can you believe that? Beckenham, Bromley, Brixton - it was all Bowieland. The genius who reinvented himself in the faraway metropolis of Berlin knew that Beckenham High Street existed! Remarkable when you think about it. You can walk down that High Street and look at all the things that Bowie had done.

To share the same postcode as him is reward enough!

Bowie was Bowie. And what a body of work reflected in the releases below. Perhaps his body of work is a sleeping giant ready to go up and up in price the more people find him. The V&A exhibition is a start and I can guarantee you this: Beckenham will never again see someone who has touched World culture the way this man has.

The price guide below gives you an estimate of the price an item has achieved. It should be used as a staring point; doing your own leg work on specific items is unavoidable.

The price guide is just a starting point and I will add to it when I get time. No scans yet. But it will really only grow with your help. If you have anything of Bowie's, be it a magazine, CD, vinyl, whatever, from any part of the world and would like it included here then please e-mail me here. If you have an idea of its value then it would be great if you could include that as well. If you have a picture/scan of the item then please include that and I will also put that up.

Happy collecting.

Original release date was to be 17 April 2020 (the day before the then but subsequently scheduled RSD 2020 which was also postponed) but was held back due to the Corona virus crisis.

A limited edition picture disc replicating the 1972 RCA edition of Space Oddity. The disc features the Mick Rock shots that were used on the front and back of the original sleeve, albeit in much better quality due to him supplying new scans of the negatives. The pictures were taken at Bowie’s then home, Haddon Hall, Beckenham, Kent, UK in the spring of 1972. The album also comes with a replica of the cover image poster which was part of the package at the time. The back sleeve image was taken in Zowie Bowie's (Duncan Jones) pink bedroom. Along with The Man Who Sold The World, the November 1972 edition of Space Oddity was repackaged for the new Bowie audience to make available the increasingly hard to find Philips and Mercury originals. This picture disc features the 2009 40th anniversary remaster of the album, which was undertaken to match as closely as possible to the original vinyl issue.
