Re: official word, tracks, release dates for reissues new [re: Ninhead]  

Hmmm.... I would have much rather preferred the earlier plan of a 2nd bonus disc with each re-release.

There's no way I'm going to buy 1. Outside again just for the song "Get Real."

Earthling gets four extra songs, but unfortunately they're all remixes, so I'll probably skip that one too.

I'll buy hours... for sure though. It seems worth it for five extra tracks, especially since it is already my favorite modern Bowie album. (I was a big fan of Omikron: Nomad Soul)

The question is, if they'd put only one bonus track on Outside, why put in Get Real instead of the muchly superior Nothing To Be Desired?

Nothing To Be Desired would be a better choice. Or something from 2. Contamination

That would be impossible, since 2. Contamination was never recorded. They could, however, have used some of the 1. Outside outtakes (which you probably meant by Contamination). Preferrably something we haven't heard. Of the material we've heard I would have used The Enemy Is Fragile.

Maybe it's so they can simply repackage the Japanese release. I agree that Nothing To Be Desired would have been a better choice but there's so much other material they should've included that it's hard to pick just one song.

Well, since Bowie is apparently reluctant to include any stuff that wasn't previously released, then the bonus track would either be Get Real, Nothing To Be Desired or one of the remixes. Of that group, I'd choose NTBD.

Re: Sent [re: Sysiyo]  

It depends what you consider to be previously released. The Black Tie White Noise rerelease, for instance, included several tracks that had only been available on promos or vinyl (or vinyl promos) so, in a sense, some of them hadn't been commercially released before. And if the promise of the 2CD editions had been kept, there would've been a few similar tracks, like The Hearts Filthy Lesson (Good Karma Mix). From that perspective, even Nothing To Be Desired is a rather weak choice.

I'll still be getting the 1.Outside re-release because my evil CD player scratched up my original :( I might get Earthling too, but I'm not sure about Hours.

Do NOT make me LAUGH!

Well this version of the song is much better than any other including the album version. It's got the guitar riff up loud and doesn't start with the backing vocals doing the chorus.

Re: Sent [re: poorsoul]  

I admit to all points... my main point being that (IMHO) it's better to include a song that's not on the album than a remix of one of the album tracks, if there is to be only one bonus track. Of course, they should all be included, but that does not seem to be an option.
