DAVID BOWIE ‘David Bowie’ [Release Date 25/01/2010]
2CD: http://991.com/Buy/ProductInformation.aspx?StockNumber=492660

* David Bowie's 1967 debut album for Decca finally receives the Deluxe Edition treatment.

* Disc One features the original stereo and mono mixes of the album stunningly remastered by Peter Mew and Tris Penna at Abbey Road Studios. This is the first time that the mono mix has been available in any format since the late '60s and is obviously the first time on CD.

* Disc Two features the singles, unreleased stereo mixes, the legendary unreleased single 'London Bye Ta-Ta' and 5 Previously Unreleased tracks recorded for John Peel's Top Gear programme in 1967.

* All in all, there are a total of 53 tracks over the two CDs with 26 appearing on CD for the very first time!

Sleeve notes by Tris Penna and Kevin Cann: "With the release of 'David Bowie – the Deluxe Edition', we all agreed that we wanted to make sure that the original album and assorted singles tracks sounded as good, if not better, as when they were first released. So in nearly every case the original one track, two track and four track mastertapes were used during the considered, careful sound restoration and remastering at Abbey Road Studios, which took as main reference the warm and full sound of the original vinyl releases (we had mint copies of the original pressings with us in the studio for comparison purposes).

This release sees this first CD release of the original mono mix of the album (unavailable in any form since the 1960's) – and in places it is a significantly different mix to that of the familiar stereo album. Several tracks make their debut in stereo – 'The Laughing Gnome' and 'The Gospel According To Tony Day' were newly mixed to stereo from the original four track session tapes. 'Did You Ever Have A Dream' existed as a previously unreleased stereo mix from 1966 when it was an album track contender. 'Let Me Sleep Beside You' and 'Karma Man' – are both original stereo mixes from 1967 and unreleased until now.

Unfortunately the multi-tracks for 'Love You Till Tuesday (single version)' and 'When I Live My Dream (single version)' no longer exist in the Decca archive – so these two titles remain only in mono, as do 'Rubber Band (single version)' and 'The London Boys' both of which were only ever mono recordings. This set also sees the first release of the Decca 'London Bye Ta-Ta', as we were incredibly lucky to be able to locate a mono version of this (no stereo version existing)."

This expanded edition features all tracks from the original Factory/London album as well as six bonus tracks from companion singles, including superb mixes by Moby, Pascal Gabriel and Boys Own.

The album also includes 'Loved It', originally released as a free CD to celebrate the opening of the controversial Factory HQ building on Charles Street, Manchester in September 1990. The remastered CD runs for 76 minutes, and features new artwork and detailed sleevenotes.
