Review
An interesting collection. It is like looking into an artists’ sketch book where you see ideas, attempts and sometimes errors. But not many of those in this collection.

And don’t be put off by the soundquality which isn’t really hi-fi on most tracks. You are going to hear some things Mainman or whoever owns the rights to these tapes don’t want you to listen to. They think these tracks are below the artist’s usual standards and may damage his public image.
But W.E. don’t care for this public image, limited & don’t think these tracks bring dishonour to the man.

Here you can listen to creativity at work and this is what it sounds like. Sure these tracks are different to some finished and polished up end-product but if you want to listen to how Bowie creates and plays with his ideas go for this download.
