David Bowie Sorrow – Amsterdam (1981 Re Release Germany) estimated value € 10,00

David Bowie’s remake of “Sorrow”, recorded in July 1973 at Château d’Hérouville, Hérouville, France, was the only single released in the UK from his Pin Ups covers album, reaching No. 3 on the UK Singles Chart, and staying in the charts for 15 weeks.It was also Bowie’s first number one hit single in Australia, where it topped the charts for two weeks in February 1974.

The B-side, “Amsterdam”, was a cover of a Jacques Brel song, that had been performed live by Bowie since 1968. The song may have been recorded by Bowie in the summer 1973 sessions for Pin Ups or in late 1971 for the album Ziggy Stardust. Never selected as an album track, it was used as the single B-side as it fitted with “Sorrow”. In France, it was billed as the A-side of the single.

“Sorrow” was featured in the 2008 John Cusack film War, Inc. In 2017 Paul Shaffer and Jenny Lewis released a cover version based mainly on Bowie’s version.
