April's Tooth Of Gold

Album: not on an album (1967)

  • A small front page story in the May 19, 1973 issue of Music Week revealed Essex sues David Bowie.

    The company had issued a High Court writ claiming a 1967 agreement assigned them "Ching-A-Ling", "Mother Grey" and "April's Tooth Of Gold".

    "April's Tooth Of Gold" is arguably the best of these three tracks; an acoustic or semi-acoustic demo recording by a solo Bowie was made of this, and a Millennium later, it has stood the test of time. >>
