Back in 1990, while Bowie was remastering his back catalog for reissue, he mentioned the fact that there was some 70 hours of unreleased material in the vault, all dating from his years in Berlin at the end of the 1970s, experimenting ruthlessly with both Brian Eno and his audiences expectations. With but a handful of remixed bonus tracks, however, not a drop of this hoard has ever made it out into public, and though the title of this collection might suggest otherwise it still hasnt.
A New Music Night
And Day was Bowies original title for what became Low.
But though a handful of titles here are familiar from Low itself,
the remainder will only require introduction if youve managed to
avoid subsequent Bowie albums Heroes, Buddah Of Suburbia
and (Heaven help us) Black Tie White Noise. In other words, its
precisely the same compilation of Bowie instrumentals that any fan could
have knocked up in some spare time, with even the inclusion of tempting
3" type numbers after a few of the titles
being quickly revealed as nothing more than a spurious attempt to convince
us theres something new
unheard here. But there
isnt, so buy the original albums yourself. -
