Dana Gillespie MainMan Documents 1974

A fascinating five-paged typed MainMan document written by Hazel (?) to Tony de Fries about Dana Gillespie's new RCA album (this believed to be "Weren't Born A Man" 1974).

The report details the marketing initiatives/opportunities being considered, the lack of TV support (the producer of The Old Grey Whistle test complaining of "Mainman Hype"), live gigs available in Madrid & Dana's bitter disappointment at the lack of support ("window displays" by RCA. The writer surveys availability of the record in various shops & the record is either sold out or not in stock in 58% of the sample visited! There is also reference to a photo shoot "Angie's session for Dana", which might possibly have been Angie Bowie? A really interesting piece of MainMan memorabilia & a great insight into record promotion at the time.

Tony de Fries managed Bowie during the pivotal years 1970-75. Apart from Bowie de Fries's management company MainMan also took care of artists such as Iggy Pop, Mick Ronson, Mott The Hoople, Wayne County, as well as Gillespie. Bowie & Ms Gillespie were apparently more than "just good friends". For more information on the MaiMan set-up please see: https://mainmanlabel.com/about-mainman/
