People who only know Bowie from his later works may struggle to embrace this wonderful collection of early gems.
After changing his name, to avoid confusion with Monkee Davy Jones, he released a single containing "I Dig Everything" - my first ever Bowie favourite. This collection is both nostalgic and a fascinating insight into the quirky and wildly inventive musician who would morph into Ziggy Stardust, The Thin White Duke and finally emerge as a fully formed David Bowie. These songs showcase his early genius and evoke a long gone magical time in the world of music. I love all Bowie.
Brings back memories of when I listened to David Bowie. A very well written obscured album Especially like "There is a Happy Land". David Bowie - g vinyl mono and stereo Years ago I bought Bowie's first album and I was really taken back by just how good it was Of course this was the stereo CD version which lacked a lot of dynamics and was not very well mastered.
This 2 LP set features on g vinyl both the original mono and stereo version of this gem of a debut album. Like most of the early mono and stereo version we find the artist had been heavily involved in the mono mastering but less so with the stereo version. Silly Boy Blue. London Boys. Karma Man.

She's Got Medals. For this single, the song was re-recorded in two different parts. The versions of both songs were edits of the full recordings released in UK and other territories. Instead, the next American single would be "All the Madmen". For the release, the album track was seriously edited, most significantly having the middle section taken out. There is also some debate as to if the single was actually released.
The single was never released. All other editions had the full album version of "Andy Warhol" on the B Side. While the single peaked at No. USA and German versions of the song were edited. The USA edit removes some of the opening bars of the song, the German edit fades early. In the end, it was dropped. However, later pressings of the "John, I'm Only Dancing" single had this Aladdin Sane version or Sax version, as it is known, due to the prominent use of saxophone.
This was not a new release, nor re-release, and had the same B Side and catalogue number. Releases across the world occurred between November and February , with different territories having one of these two B Sides. The single was not released in the UK. It was released in a few other territories Canada, Spain, Australia, etc.
These tracks are taken from the contemporaneous album David Bowie In April — in a move reminiscent of what happened with the rerecorded version of the "John, I'm Only Dancing" single in the UK — "Rebel Rebel" was heavily remixed and overdubbed in New York, and appeared on single again in the US and Canada the following month with a different B Side.
The version in all these territories was the album mix, except in Australia where there was an exceptionally short edit of 2'58" as opposed to approx. In mid to late , during the earliest days of recording songs for The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars Bowie recorded this new version of the song for the album.
It was never used. The album was issued again in with additional tracks, and a second time in with more additional tracks, one of which was "Panic in Detroit" [Live]. See Live Albums — Re-Issues on this page for more information. In all other territories, it was released in a single edit 3'15" which edited out some of the verses later in the song. It was, however, also released in Netherlands later in the year, and in Yugoslavia but with only "Velvet Goldmine" on the B Side.
It is one of the many tracks from the recording session in late which ended up as B Sides over the following years, along with the singles "Sorrow" with "Amsterdam" , "Drive-In Saturday" with "Round and Round" and "Diamond Dogs" with "Holy Holy" [rerecorded version]. The single was never released, although a few copies were pressed. It came out as a B Side to the official retrospective single "Suffragette City" in the UK and some other territories where the ChangesOneBowie compilation was being promoted; and as an A Side in the USA and some other territories where the compilation album was not being prompted.
In addition, "Stay" appears in two formats: the album version 6'16" and single edit 3' The "Suffragette City" single had the album version on the B Side except in Germany ; while the "Stay" single used the edited version in all the territories where it was released. Both compilation and single were focused upon the UK market.
Bowie's first 12" single. Except, not really Nic Pegg writes: 'In an unusual experiment, a 12" promo issued in American featured a seven-minute remix consisting of "Sound and Vision" segueing into Iggy Pop 's " Sister Midnight ".
The single version worldwide was an edited cut of the album version, but was released in both Germany and France in two formats: in the original English and in the respective languages. The "'Heroes'" album was also released in Germany and France with the song "'Heroes'" full length version in different language versions.
The 12" single commercially released for "'Heroes'", however, was only released in Spain. However, this 12" was also released in the US as a promo: labelled as the 'Disco Version'.
The song is an extended version of "Breaking Glass" from the Low album. Interestingly, the labels on the actual record say that both songs come from the live album Stage. They do not. The versions of the tracks on it ["Boys Keep Swinging" 12"] are the same as on the 7" singles and the album. In Netherlands, an edited version of the album track was released.
The singles had different B Sides. Nic Pegg claims that it replaced "Boys Keep Swinging". This was after both the UK and the States had seen the single "D.
From the Just a Gigolo soundtrack album. The French version was called "Disco Remix" but is just the full length version of the track as per the UK edition.
The song had featured prominently and a live version from that tour would appear on the live album Stage. The studio version was thus recorded prior to the recording of the Lodger album which began in September It is a slight remix which 'notably extends the deafening silence after the line "may God's love be with you" by a full three-and-a-half seconds'. It is the second version of the song that has been released as a single many times, beginning late and providing Bowie with his first UK hit.
The song was originally to be the closing track of Scary Monsters It was, however, dropped and replaced during the recording process. The song was instead used in on a Japanese television commercial for a sake brand called Crystal Jun Rock. Bowie also appeared in the commercial. The German 12" has the 'Disco mix' on the A Side, which is just the full length version of the song as on the album Scary Monsters This made a lot of sense as the song features Japanese vocals from Hisahi Miura.
This is because both 7" and 12" versions of this rather limited release had the same edit of the song, taken from the Scary Monsters Both 7" and 12" versions of this rather unusually used exactly the same cuts of the tracks. The song runs at 5'58" on all these records, however, a special edit was created running at 3'34" for the music video.
