Bowie produced a Zappa cover in 1973

We knew there had to be a connection between two of the greatest music geniuses, the recently deceased David Bowie and Frank Zappa.
Here is a song from an obscure album recorded in 1973. Artist: Ava Cherry. Producer: David Bowie. Song: How Could I Be Such A Fool (Zappa).
Musicians: David Bowie, Mike Garson (keyboards), Herbie Flowers (bass), Aynsley Dunbar (drums). 

Nice to know that there were some other connection except the fight between Bowie and Zappa about guitarist Adrian Belew.

Ava Cherry's album was not finished but got released more than 20 years later.
The album The Astronettes Sessions also includes a prototype version of Scream Like A Baby (I Am A Laser), that would in its new form end up on Scary Monsters in 1980. Worth checking out!
