David Bowie BBC Sessions 1969-1972 [Sampler] - The Album

* * * * 4.38 out of 5 (24 votes)

This album was issued in a limited release in 1996 from the archives of the BBC as a teaser for three supposedly upcoming volumes (the liner notes even include the track listings for all of these). It includes tracks from various BBC live shows such as Sounds Of The Seventies and the Bob Harris show. It is unclear who owns the rights to these original, previously officially unreleased tracks, and the current story is that Bowie supposedly sued to keep the following three albums from being released.

However, recent news reports (September 1996) indicate that the BBC is planning to open up its vaults and publish the tracks to which it believes it has ownership. Latest word is perhaps in early 1997.
