The 'Mercury' Demos The 'Mercury' Demos
(Parlophone DBMD 1969), June 2019 (EC)

Space Oddity/Janine/An Occasional Dream/Conversation Piece/Ching-A-Ling/I'm Not Quite (Letter To Hermione)/Lover To The Dawn/Love Song/When I'm Five/Life Is A Circus.

An official release of a demo tape recorded with John 'Hutch' Hutchinson, presumably in David's bedroom around April 1969. Basically, it's an official release of the 1987 bootleg LP The Beckenham Oddity and its countless reissues. That bootleg, however, was incomplete ('Lover To The Dawn' did not appear until 1991 on the bootleg CD Naked And Wired) and sounded much worse. Issued in a replica of the original reel to reel box with a print and two photo contact sheets. Included intergrally on Conversation Piece.

ChangesNowBowie ChangesNowBowie
(Parlophone CNBCD 2020), August 2020 (EC)

The Man Who Sold The World/Aladdin Sane/White Light-White Heat/Shopping For Girls/Lady Stardust/The Supermen/Repetition/Andy Warhol/Quicksand.

An official release of a the ChangesNowBowie BBC program, but without the interview segments. Originally scheduled for April as part of Record Store Day 2020, but postponed due to COVID. The album was released as a download then, so it's unlikely this will be a limited RSD release.

Introduction-Memory Of A Free Festival/Rebel Rebel/John, I’m Only Dancing (Again)/Sorrow/Changes/1984/Moonage Daydream/Rock 'N' Roll With Me/Love Me Do-The Jean Genie/Young Americans/Can You Hear Me/It’s Gonna Be Me/Somebody Up There Likes Me/Suffragette City/Rock 'N' Roll Suicide/Panic In Detroit/Knock On Wood/Foot Stompin'-I Wish I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate-Foot Stompin'/Diamond Dogs-It’s Only Rock 'N' Roll (But I Like It)-Diamond Dogs.

Together with David Live and Cracked Actor, this 2020 RSD exclusive now provides a complete picture of Bowie's 1974 US tour. Recorded in Detroit, Michigan Palace, 20-10-74, except for the last three tracks, which were recorded in Nashville, Municipal Auditorium, 30-11-74.

The first title in the series Brilliant Live Adventures [1995-1999], recorded in Dallas, Starplex Amphitheater, 13-10-95. Compared to the streaming edition (which preceeded the CD by four months), the CD drops the two bonus tracks.

A reissue of the BowieNet members 2CD from 2000, dropping the fan-made artwork and bonus CD. See the original for recording details. Compared to the BowieNet edition, 'The Hearts Filthy Lesson', is recorded at a different, as yet unknown date and location (at least not at the 1997 Phoenix Festival). The bonus CD has been replaced with the two additional tracks from Amsterdam, previously released on the 'Tao Jones Index' 12".

Life On Mars?/Thursday's Child/Something In The Air/China Girl/Can't Help Thinking About Me/Always Crashing In The Same Car/Survive/Stay/Seven/Changes/The Pretty Things Are Going To Hell/I'm Afraid Of Americans.

The sixth and final album in the Brilliant Live Adventures [1995-1999] series was recorded at the Kit Kat Klub, New York, 19-11-99. For reasons unknown, opener 'Life On Mars?' was recorded in Paris (and so is identical to Something In The Air). This recording had already appeared as a Virgin promo CDR titled Live Compilation (Segued). 'Seven', 'Something In The Air' and 'The Pretty Things Are Going To Hell' are also found on the 'Seven' CD-single.


(Parlophone CDTOYBOX 1), January 2022 (EC)

I Dig Everything/You've Got A Habit Of Leaving/The London Boys/Karma Man/Conversation Piece/Shadow Man/Let Me Sleep Beside You/Hole In The Ground/Baby Loves That Way/Can't Help Thinking About Me/Silly Boy Blue/Toy (Your Turn To Drive).

Alternatives & Extras: Liza Jane/You've Got A Habit Of Leaving/Baby Loves That Way/Can't Help Thinking About Me/I Dig Everything/The London Boys/Silly Boy Blue (Tibet Version)/Let Me Sleep Beside You/In The Heat Of The Morning/Conversation Piece/Hole In The Ground/Shadow Man/Toy (Your Turn To Drive).

Unplugged & Somewhat Slightly Electric: In The Heat Of The Morning/I Dig Everything/You've Got A Habit Of Leaving/The London Boys/Karma Man/Conversation Piece/Shadow Man/Let Me Sleep Beside You/Hole In The Ground/Baby Loves That Way/Can't Help Thinking About Me/Silly Boy Blue/Toy (Your Turn To Drive).

Also available as a 3x10" LP set (Parlophone LPTOYBOX 1). Marketed in this format as Toy:Box. The album's official release was in November 2021, as part of the Brilliant Adventure box set.

Toy was scheduled to be appear in 2001, but delayed several times and ultimately shelved. An early mix of the album was leaked to a few fans in 2006 (when I published my review) and became more widely available in 2011. The leak featured 'Uncle Floyd' and 'Afraid', two tracks that would end up on the next album Heathen ('Uncle Floyd' being retitled to 'Slip Away'). They were either dropped from the definite Toy tracklist, or, more likely, replaced with 'Karma Man' and 'Can't Help Thinking About Me' for this official release—both were no part of the leak and are the only two tracks on the album with different mixing credits. Except for the track listing, the differences between the officially released album and the leak (including 'Liza Jane' and 'In The Heat Of The Morning', here delegated to CD2 as extras) are minor; roughly half of the album is identical except for the mastering.

CD2 consists mostly of remixes by Tony Visconti. The versions of You've Got A Habit Of Leaving/Baby Loves That Way/Let Me Sleep Beside You/Conversation Piece/Shadow Man/Your Turn To Drive were previous released as bonus tracks or B-sides of Heathen-era singles; 'The London Boys' appeared incomplete as two excerpts on the internet. CD3 features stripped down mixes, most of them overdubbed with acoustic guitars.

The Toy EP is complementary compilation of "B-sides".


Waiting In The Sky (Before The Starman Came To Earth)
(Parlophone DBRNRSLP 722), April 2024 (EC)

Five Years/Soul Love/Moonage Daydream/Round And Round/Amsterdam/Hang On To Yourself/Ziggy Stardust/Velvet Goldmine/Holy Holy/Star/Lady Stardust.

This LP was released for Record Store Day 2024 in a limited edition of 8.000 copies. The album was taken from Trident Studios quarter-inch stereo tapes (dated 15-12-71) that were created for the provisional tracklisting of The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars. Unlike the BOWPROMO album (another RSD exclusive), this album does not contain any surprises in the form of previously unreleased early mixes.
