DAVID BOWIE BRILLIANT ADVENTURE (1992-2001) 

Released 26th November, 2021.

Vinyl box

The latest in an award-winning and critically acclaimed series of box sets BRILLIANT ADVENTURE (1992 – 2001) is an 18 LP vinyl box set that includes newly remastered versions of some of Bowie’s most underrated and experimental material: BLACK TIE WHITE NOISE, THE BUDDHA OF SUBURBIA1.OUTSIDEEARTHLING and ‘hours…’ along with the expanded live album BBC RADIO THEATRE, LONDON, JUNE 27, 2000, the non-album / alternative version / B-sides and soundtrack music compilation RE:CALL 5 and the legendary previously unreleased album TOY.

TOY was recorded following David’s triumphant Glastonbury 2000 performance. Bowie entered the studio with his band to record new interpretations of songs he’d first recorded from 1964-1971. Unfortunately, in 2001 the concept of the ‘surprise drop’ album release and the technology to support it were still quite a few years off, making it impossible to release.

Exclusive to the box set are BBC RADIO THEATRE, LONDON, JUNE 27, 2000 and RE:CALL 5. The former was recorded two days after the famous Glastonbury performance in front of 500 lucky fans at the BBC’s art deco theatre in central London. RE:CALL 5 features 39 non-album / alternative version / b-sides and soundtrack songs over 4LP’s.

The 84 page accompanying books will feature rarely seen and previously unpublished photos by photographers including Frank W. Ockenfels 3, Nick Knight, John Scarisbrick and Nina Schultz Terner and others, as well as memorabilia, technical notes about the albums from producers/engineers Brian Eno, Nile Rodgers, Reeves Gabrels and Mark Plati as well as a new an interview with THE BUDDHA OF SUBURBIA collaborator Erdal Kizilçay.

DAVID BOWIE TOY (6X10″ VINYL BOX) & (3CD BOX)

Released on 7th January, 2022

 

TOY:Box is a special edition of the unreleased TOY album available in 3CD or 6×10” vinyl formats. The ‘capture the moment’ approach of the recording sessions are extended to the sleeve artwork designed by Bowie featuring a photo of him as a baby with a contemporary face. The package also contains a 16-page full-colour book featuring previously unseen photographs by Frank Ockenfels 3.

TOY was recorded following David’s Glastonbury 2000 performance. Bowie entered the studio with his band to record new interpretations of songs he’d first recorded from 1964-1971. The plan was to record the album ‘old school’ with the band playing live, choose the best takes and then release it as soon as humanly possible. Unfortunately, in 2001 the concept of the ‘surprise drop’ album release and the technology to support it were still quite a few years off, making it impossible to release TOY at the time.

Included in TOY:Box is a second CD/set of 10”s of alternative mixes and versions including proposed B-Sides (versions of David’s debut single ‘Liza Jane’ and 1967’s ‘In The Heat Of The Morning’), later mixes by Tony Visconti and the ‘Tibet Version’ of ‘Silly Boy Blue’ recorded at The Looking Glass Studio time at the of the 2001 Tibet House show in New York featuring Philip Glass on piano and Moby on guitar.

The third CD/set of 10”s features ‘Unplugged & Somewhat Slightly Electric’ mixes of thirteen TOY tracks. Producer Mark Plati “While we were recording the basic tracks Earl Slick suggested that he and I overdub acoustic guitars on all the songs. He said this was a Keith Richards’ trick, sometimes these guitars would be a featured part of the track, and at other times they’d be more subliminal. Later while mixing, David heard one of the songs broken down to just vocals and acoustic guitars; this gave him the idea that we ought to do some stripped-down mixes like that and that maybe one day they’d be useful. Once we put a couple of other elements in the pot, it felt like it could be a completely different record. I was only too happy to finish that thought some two decades after the fact”.
