Diamond Dog-Nappers Strike Again

Record Mirror

August 1974

DOUBLE disappearing act! In July we reported that the gigantic reproductions of David Bowie’s “Diamond Dogs” album cover – two 6×10 foot panels – had been snatched from a bolted frame outside a record shop on our Sunset Strip. Well… a few days later the painting was “found” in Burbank, Ca., and returned to the record shop and again secured to the wall with extra bolts. You guessed it! The painting was ripped off sometime the next day and after waiting a month for it to turn up again, the shop ordered artist Ray Smith to do another cover and they have hung it just inside the record shop door – where it can be seen from the street but where they hope it will be safe and secure for the duration of the albums popularity.
