1969 - Lover To The Dawn (Beckenham demos)

1969 - Lover To The Dawn (Beckenham demos)

"Lover To The Dawn" Foxgrove Road, Beckenham April 1969

A fascinating glimpse of the genesis of the Space Oddity album is afforded by a ten-song acoustic demo tape recorded by David and his Feathers partner John "Hutch" Hutchinson, probably in mid-April 1969. In addition to the 'Space Oddity' demo, the tape features early versions of 'Janine', 'An Occasional Dream', 'Conversation Piece', 'Letter To Hermione' (here called 'I'm Not Quite') and 'Cygnet Committee' (with very different lyrics and called 'Lover To The Dawn'). There are also renditions of the Feathers staples 'When I'm Five', 'Ching-a-Ling', 'Love Song' and 'Life Is A Circus'.
