    God, i love this song (and album).

    When the chorus kicks in, just love how they switch vocal gears.
    Bowie is one of those guys that i've always heard & loved, since childhood.

    Default David Bowie / Conversation Piece box

    from superdeluxeedition.com:

    September 5, 2019 by Paul Sinclair

    5CD box set covering 1968-69 era • Demos & radio sessions • New mix of Space Oddity album (available separately) • Previously unreleased tracks

    This year, Parlophone will not move into the 1990s and issue a fifth ‘eras’ box set in their continuing David Bowie reissue programme, but will instead release a five-CD box set called Conversation Piece that focuses on Bowie’s early development throughout 1968 and 1969. This set will feature home demos, BBC radio sessions, a new 2019 mix of the Space Oddity album and more…

    The first thing to say is that everything on this year’s vinyl box sets – that’s Spying Through A Keyhole, Clareville Grove Demos and The ‘Mercury’ Demos – is featured on Conversation Piece. Parlophone did say at the time that these tracks would end up on CD.

    Additionally, there’s 12 previously unreleased tracks/demos from the period, as well as the new mix of the Space Oddity, by the album’s original producer, Tony Visconti. This new mix features the song ‘Conversation Piece’ restored to the track listing in its initially intended position, before it was originally dropped due to time constraints of vinyl (the song wasn’t wasted, it ended up as the B-side to Space Oddity follow-up The Prettiest Star).

    Visconti has this to say about his new 2019 mix of the Space Oddity album:

    “It was so much fun to find hidden gems of musicianship with more time to mix the second time around, a guitar twiddle here, a trombone blast there, Marc Bolan’s voice in a group choir and more detail in general that we overlooked all those years ago when the label gave us a week at the most to mix this album. And in the details you will find 22 year old David Bowie, who would soon take the world by storm.”

    This five-CD box also includes the 1969 mix of Space Oddity (presumably the 2015 remaster) and these discs are packaged within a 120 page hardcover book which features exclusive images of memorabilia from the personal collection of David’s former manager, the late Ken Pitt, as well as photos from David’s archive and others by Ray Stevenson, Vernon Dewhurst, David Bebbington, Ken Pitt, Alec Byrne, Tony Visconti and Jojanneke Claasen.



    The Conversation Piece 5CD box set. Click image to enlarge.
    Sleeve notes are by Mark Adams, Tris Penna and Kevin Cann and there are contributions from George Underwood, Tony Visconti, Vernon Dewhurst, Dana Gillespie and John ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson.

    The 2019 mix of the Space Oddity album will be made available separately on CD and vinyl and both come in a special die-cut sleeve. Sadly, Parlophone is persisting with the ‘random’ vinyl concept (used for the CHANGESONEBOWIE and CHANGESTWOBOWIE reissues), since this new vinyl edition of Space Oddity will be pressed on silver, gold and black vinyl and there’s no way of knowing before you order, which one you are getting. How cool is that? (answer: not very).

    The standalone Space Oddity 2019 mix comes in a die-cut sleeve (CD also)
    The coloured vinyl features hand-numbered labels with silver numbered 1 to 1969 and gold 1970 to 2019. The black vinyl isn’t numbered. Such a blatant attempt to get fans to buy the same record more than once leaves a rather sour taste in the mouth. It also means Parlophone are creating unnecessary work for retailers (I am one!), who no doubt will have to process refunds as fans receive the colours they don’t want. They really need to ditch this concept.

    The Conversation Piece five-CD box set will be issued on 15 November 2019. There is no vinyl version, for fairly obvious reasons. SDE understands that it’s not the end for the ‘eras’ box sets and fans can expect Tin Machine and the 1990s albums to be treated similarly to the 1970s and 1980s, at some point.

    Been listening to a lot of Bowie, lately.

    When the black girls start singing at the end of Putting our fire/cat people, it’s like a fucking orgasmic release!

    I think I prefer that version to the SRV version.

    I know he isn't everyone's cup o' tea, but the man was a true artist, and you have to at least respect that.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
