Early Beatles and David Bowie recordings fetch big bucks

The auction hammers have come down on rare recordings by The Beatles and David Bowie.

There were 63 bids on eBay UK for a promo disc of The Beatles' "Love Me Do," one of only 250 that were pressed for radio. The British Heart Foundation discovered it in a stack of records donated to one of its charity shops. It sold for $12,500.

David Bowie's demo of "Starman" sold Tuesday for just over $67,000, which was $57,000 more than its estimate. Recorded in 1971 by Bowie and guitarist Mick Ronson, the reel-to-reel tape also contains early versions of "Moonage Daydream" and "Hang on to Yourself."
