God knows i love his music , this is the stuff i sweep under the rug and deliberately pretend never happened. I suspect there is still more to come. :(

Can't say I'm surprised by the reaction here -which I share. I wonder who will buy it? No doubt there'll be a few convenient articles in the retro media reevaluating Never Let Me Down as a lost classic.

I've got more Disky product

a label like Dutch Disky

One comp to avoid, though, is Disky's "Best of the 70's"

Normally, Disky are clever at repackaging

Then they’ll start over again.

There’s always enough gullibles out there (in here?) to make it pay.

Not really, there are many fans on here and hardly any of them have bought the boxes. There will be new product, like the latest live album Blackout. That's really filling a niche market that won't deliver massive sales, now or in the future.

they are impulse items for people with Bowie fans on their shopping lists.

I'd love to be excited about a new version of "Never Let me Down" - if I thought it had any SONGS I probably would be.

12 out of 15 albums in the vinyl box are previusly unreleased and I don't need or want any of them.

The redone version of Zeroes is online now. Needless to say the fanboys are apoplectic with joy over how great it is. It’s odd. The backing is quite different, but instead of sounding very 80’s it now sounds as if it was cobbled together with pro tools. Which I’m sure it was.
The vocals are way to the fore and just highlights how poor Bowie’s singing is on this one. Despite Reeve Gabrels involvement (why?) his fret shredding isn’t evident ... maybe a little on the fade.
So ... a little bullet dodged.

It was a dreadful record, but the problems start with the songs. The performance was just the cherry on the top of the curly turd.

Totally agree Moleskin. Let us not forget that this makeover forms part of the exclusive content of an expensive box set. Something had to be put in there to help the punters part with their money!

I suspect a curly turd would be more inviting.
