    . I know that carlos alomar Bailed because his wife was ill. He said as much in a semi-recent interview i found on spotify. As for the others…. I’d have to think about it

    ^ I think that when Alomar made his withdrawal announcement, Bowie and Gabrels decided they could get away with putting some of his rhythm parts on backing tape, and that they might as well put all the backing vocals and synths of the other two players on said tape. Gabrels basically took over the musical director chair at that point, too, after being 'only a sideman' for Black Tie White Noise and 1. Outside. Then they hooked up with Mark Plati in the summer of '96 and the Earthling lineup was in place.

    Strange getting previously unreleased mixes for those Earthling singles though - just wish they'd be made available on CD or HQ mp3. I'll definitely be grabbing the Brilliant Adventure RSD bonus EP. The dribs and drabs aspect of this does wind you up though. Still annoyed that the Is It Any Wonder material wasn't added to the main boxset!
    Old post I know, but wanted to reply anyway.

    The Leon stuff isn't hard to find, and I think that's all we're going to get. The quality of what has leaked is great, and when I listened to it, I can understand why a record company wouldn't want to release it. It's an interesting listen having lived with Outside for so long, but it's not something that I'd listen to a lot. I doubt many people would buy it, and aside from hardcore fans, I would think any casual fans buying it would probably complain that they wasted their money!

    As to Is It Any Wonder material not being on the main boxset, they've been pretty clear about not putting anything in the box sets that hasn't been officially released previously. I don't see it as a bad thing, as it makes it easier to get the rare stuff without having to buy the boxes if you have that stuff already. I actually skipped the last box set because I already have the records aside from Buddha, and I have that 10 CD box set with Outside through Reality that collects the b-sides. I was a completist about getting stuff but since have started to be more selective, and actually opting to get CD's for the more recent EP's since it all recorded digitally anyway.

    I haven't seen a movie in a theatre since 2019, and I can't wait to go see Moonage Daydream in IMAX. It looks so good, Visconti is involved so it will sound good, and seeing that 1978 footage in HD is mind blowing!

    After much deliberation I finally purchased the Brilliant Adventure box set. It’s my favourite Bowie era, possibly tied with the Berlin trilogy and Scary Monsters but after missing out on all the 90s live albums and previous box sets I decided screw it, treat myself.

    srsly, the levels of fuckery with this song has surpassed my patience. They have teased us with this song a hundred times over. But we still do not have the proper studio version or the far superior live version, Is it Any Wonder? F this noise.

    I agree. Even though I'm a huge Bowie fan, aside from a very select few, I have zero interest in remixes of his songs.

    This is the box set I actually decided not to get since I already had all the albums except Buddha on vinyl. If the BBC show didn’t have fades between all the songs, then I maybe would have sprung for it. Since I have that 10 CD box collecting Outside through Reality with the bonus discs, this doesn’t have much to offer on ReCall 5. It's actually down to $250 on Amazon, which is a good deal, but I can't bring myself to get it.

    since they released the brilliant adventure EP on streaming i went looking to see if it is available for digital purchase and it looks like it is, but i noticed my usual source for lossless download purchases (7digital) no longer has bowie's main catalog. I also see talking heads are missing. real bummer, as other places seem to usually be more expensive. looks like maybe qobuz is cheapest option now, anyone have suggestions where else to pick these digital bowie eps up?

    I haven't been buying the box sets because i pretty much have most everything elsewhere. was also disappointed with the choice to leave off some really excellent stuff like the tracks from 30th anniversary diamond dogs. some of that is so essential, Alternative Candidate, Dodo, Candidate Intimacy mix... just crazy those didn't get included in the box.

    It's been discussed at length, but it seems that before he died and he left his "road map" for posthumous releases, it was decided that these box sets should only include things that were officially released during the original time period. The exceptions are the new mixes of albums that are exclusive to the boxes, and the Gouster, which did feature some tracks that weren't released until the Ryko reissues. I can see how that strategy makes sense. All the bonus tracks from Ryko releases or the various reissues such as the 30th anniversary releases are still easily found on those releases.

    My big issue is they still are ALL OVER THE PLACE with what they're doing for reissues. They made a huge deal around Space Oddity and reissuing tons of demos and other stuff in vinyl boxes, then finally compiling it all into a 5CD set. A lot of it isn't all that interesting, and I think the main drive behind that was to extend the copyright, but still, it made it all available in one place. They sort of continued that with The Man Who Sold The World where there was a new mix and a collecting of the various stuff. Then, NOTHING FOR HUNKY DORY except yet another picture disc. I still don't understand why they didn't compile something for that. There is for sure lots of material they could have put together: Ryko bonus tracks, the BOWPROMO release, some BBC stuff, etc. I'm sure there's more in the vaults that's worth hearing, gotta be some Life on Mars demos or something.

    Then, same with Ziggy, we get yet another picture disc, and a half speed master which by all accounts isn't better than the 40th anniversary vinyl edition which is basically the benchmark on how to do these properly. I know they have done it to death, but they could have made a nice set for Ziggy and if they had done a little bit of work, fans would have bought it.

    Being a Bowie fan these last few years has been hard. The merch store is a ridiculous, just slapping his name and image on any and everything they can think of. It's really absurd. Some of the releases have been nice, the 90's live recordings were nice, and the various EP's let some rare stuff trickle out. Yet, they have completely skipped over the Sound + Vision Tour, which deserves some sort of live release (or several given the changing set lists). I understand Tin Machine seems to be held up by one of the Sales brothers wanting more money for TM2. To skip over the 1990 live stuff just seems like another huge missed opportunity.

    They did finally release Toy, and seem to have dumped the vaults out completely where it's almost too much stuff. Why can't they do that for the 70's stuff?

    I'm right there with you. And I think the reasoning is money. Bowie's gone, there's no more Bowie music, so they need to "discover" unreleased stuff in perpetuity. Otherwise they can't keep making money off him.

    I picked up the reissue of Black Tie White Noise recently. It's a decent reissue, nothing super special since its the stand alone album but I'm glad to finally have it.
