Note track B2 is just David's vocals, Lennon's guitar and Willy Week's bass
Limited edition of 150, also available in same numbers on red and blue wax
"Shilling The Rubes" = Circus/carnival slang for taking money off of people
Note that Bowie's pseudonym "The Gouster" is a now obscure piece of street slang regarding a form of dress that was adopted by hip black kids in the mid and late 1960s with the dress consisting of baggy, pleated pants and long collar shirts etc to create a "gangster" (cool not flashy) look, which ties in with Bowie's dress at the time.
