    More info

    The expanded double-disc 40th Anniversary reissue of David Bowie's Space Oddity -- for all intents and purposes, his first true album, originally appearing in 1969 as Man of Words, Man of Music and following a largely forgotten 1967 debut for Deram -- contains 15 bonus tracks, all gathered on a second disc. Eight of these tracks are previously unreleased, highlighted by a pair of demos -- billed as never bootlegged -- that open the disc: one of the first versions of 'Space Oddity' followed by 'An Occasional Dream.' The other unreleased cuts are largely different mixes: an unreleased stereo mix of 'Conversation Piece,' alternate album mixes of 'Wild Eyed Boy from Freecloud' and 'Memory of a Free Festival,' an alternate stereo mix of 'London Bye Ta Ta,' and a full-length Italian version of 'Space Oddity.' There's also a BBC session of 'Unwashed and Somewhat Slightly Dazed' that somehow escaped compilers of 2002's Bowie at the Beeb and that, along with the other two BBC sessions, are a highlight here. Like the proper album, this bonus disc is a little bit of a hodge-podge but enjoyably so, as the formative moments and alternate-take repetition are goosed along by several true gems: those kinetic BBC sessions, the glamtastic 'London Bye Ta-Ta,' the alternate 'Wild Eyed Boy from Freecloud' with a Paul Buckmaster intro, and a longer version of 'Memory of a Free Festival.'
