最近听的最多的一张Bowie的Bootleg,Arnold Corns是bowie的一个化名,自1971年起,bowie用这个名字发表了一些作品,Arnold Corns据说是来自于Syd时期Pink Floyd的"Arnold Layne",同时为Arnold Corns录音的乐手还有Mick Ronson, Mick Woodmansey和Trevor Bolder,这张专辑收集了Bowie以Arnold Corns的身份录制的全部作品
This is a collection of singles, outtakes, and rare songs recorded under the name of Arnold Corns in 1971 and is a direct copy of "Freddi & The Dreamer".
It should be noted that the John Peel show version of Looking For A Friend appears as Track 12 on this particular pressing which is at odds with the tracklisting shown on the cover art.
This was one of Bowie’s side projects and something of a dry run for Ziggy Stardust. The band was formed in Dulwich College and Bowie agreed to write for them. At the same time he also agreed to write for the 19 year old dress designer Freddie Burretti (aka Rudi Valentino). Bowie came up with the idea of combining Burretti and Arnold Corns, and with the help of Mick Ronson, Mick Woodmansey and Trevor Bolder, a revised version of Arnold Corns was created during the spring of 1971. Bowie was writing material that would later become Hunky Dory, as well as songs earmarked for Burretti. Burretti as the frontman was a total fabrication, and his contributions were simply lost alongside Bowie's.
The band’s first single was "Moonage Daydream"/"Hang on to Yourself", released on B&C records on 7 May 1971 and a stunning flop. Both these songs later reappeared on Ziggy Stardust in new versions. The Arnold Corns versions appeared as bonus tracks on the Rykodisc CD rerelease of The Man Who Sold the World.
