The Arnold Corns - "Moonage Daydream/"Hang On To Yourself"/Man In The Middle" Vinyl 7 single

The Arnold Corns – Moonage Daydream/Hang On To Yourself/Man In The Middle
Vinyl 7” Single, 45rpm, Unofficial Release, 1978
B&C Records

The Arnold Corns was a project that David Bowie started with Mick Ronson and his dress designer Freddie Buretti as the lead singer. Well, that's the concept, it was pretty much Bowie with Ronson before Honky Dory album. The real rarity here is “Man In The Middle” which is a song I never knew about till I bought this single. Its very Man Who Sold The World  but clearly its not Bowie singing lead, I can hear him on back-up vocals. Valentino is credited as the singer, so it is either Rudy or maybe even Freddie. Nevertheless its not the best Bowie composition, which is maybe why he has buried this record and never re-released it like the other two songs on this single.
