On friday I recieved a new copy of The All American Bowie. I got contacted through the website by Sky who wondered if I were interested in this record. Very happy with it, I didn’t have the sleeve in white, not that I usually care about sleeves, but it’s nice to add them when I can. Thanks Sky!
Finally, after years of searching I managed to find a copy of In America with the Fried Egg pattern.
This has been on the top of my wantlist since I bought my very first TMOQ.
They are simply stunning records, I managed to get my favourite, the blue and white combination.
I can’t thank Dillon from Noble Records enough for all the help. Please go check out the store, highly recommended!
With this now finally in my collection I getting very close to completion. I won’t focus too much on finding all the other eggs, I have many years left to find those!
One of my latest arrivals was this red vinyl copy of The All American Bowie with a highly developed cancer pattern. It also had a white label which was a new combination I can’t remember seeing before. It will be interesting to see if it continues to darken over time, but for now the pattern is really cool! Happy with this one!
The issue of Rolling Stone magazine from November 9th 1972 asked; “Are you man enough for David Bowie?”
Little did they know some parts of this article would later be used on the icon bootlegs from TMOQ, In Person and In America. As you can see from the pictures, the title and photos were later put on the inserts for the two records. Very cool pieces.

I recently came across a copy of The All American Bowie on red vinyl with the green label. This is my third time buying this record which is one of the bicest looking combinations. The record even came with a beautiful blue sleeve which I didn’t have for any of the releases, the insert was also glued on the back. Very nice copy!
Starting off the new year in the best way possible, by adding a new missing TMOQ to the collection.
This beautiful copy of The All American Bowie was bought from ebay, it’s a yellow copy with pink sleeve and pink insert. And it’s mint! One of my best copies so far.
I recently came across a copy of In America on red vinyl with the big pig label. Unfortunately it was broken, but I got it for a fair price of 25€ which is a great deal for the sleeve itself! Now I’m going to try and fix this piece, luckily I have my other red In America!
I am closing in on completing my TMOQ collection.
But I am still missing a few pieces. Maybe you have one to sell or maybe trade?
Here are the list of what’s missing.
Two variations missing:
– Blue vinyl with white label
– Blue vinyl with green label
One variation missing:
– Blue vinyl with green label
The All American Bowie
Three variations missing:
– Red vinyl with black label
– Yellow vinyl with black label
– Orange vinyl with black white label
And of course….
In America Fried Eggs
Any variation needed!
Any help to complete this collection is highly appreciated!
I recently got sent a link to a TMOQ on ebay by a good friend, it turned out it was a copy I had not seen before. A green vinyl In Person with black label. I only knew of a variation with white label and for the green vinyl and was afraid that it could be a misplaced copy of In America in a In Person sleeve. Luckily it is exactly what I hoped. And it’s a beauty with both the original insert and TMOQ catalog.
It’s been a long time since the last update, but during the ladt few weeks I have recieved some more pieces to my collection. I managed to find another red In Person with white label and together with it I also managed to get my hands on two spare sleeves. That means I finally found a sleeve for my green In Person and also have one extra for later.
