David Bowie Sound + Vision (box set) (1989)

David Bowie Sound + Vision (box set) (1989)

David Bowie Sound + Vision contains few of Bowie’s greatest hits in their original form, instead frequently opting for demos, live versions and even a German vocal version of “Heroes” (“Helden”). This box set was originally conceived in 1989 as less of a comprehensive career retrospective than as a “teaser” for the then-upcoming Rykodisc CD reissue campaign covering Bowie’s output from 1969 to 1980. As a result of this commercial logic, none of the “rarities” originally included on the 1989 edition of Sound + Vision (the rare single versions of “Wild-Eyed Boy From Freecloud” and “Rebel Rebel,” or the previously unreleased studio outtakes “London Bye Ta–Ta,” “1984/Dodo,” “After Today,” or “It’s Hard To Be A Saint in the City”) were included as bonus tracks on the Rykodisc editions of Bowie’s albums. Conversely, some rarities were reserved exclusively for the Rykodisc re-releases and do not appear in this release.
