DAVID LIVE (Recut/Remixed) In The Fall?  

I was told that the album has been re-mixed and re-cut by Tony Visconti for a 30th Anniversary release in the Fall. Is this true? Has anyone else heard anything about this release?

I spoke with Tony about this and the rerelease of Stage recently and he said they're in the can and just awaiting an official release from the label. He's currently working on the 5.1 audio of the A Reality Tour DVD as well as the accompanying live 2-disc set.

If Bowie is willing to remix/remodel I wonder what will happen to the cover of the album. Will they airbrush fat onto the picture?

LOL! air brush fat! very funny. What exactly does re-cut mean? Does it mean they are going to change the order of the tracks? I hope not, I hate when this is done, it loses all consistency. I do Hope they put a cooler cover on there though.

I suppose the one that would really gain from it is Stage, especially if it is remixed from scratch to sound more like a concert recording.

Tony has always said he liked the way the Stage album was rearranged, so i'd be surprised if he changes it back to the original running order.

I can't wait for David live though, It's been my favourite album for as long as I can remember. Can't wait to hear it in 5.1 and I hope the all the dialogue from the shows are restored.

I only said it would be neat if they added the unused cover in the STAGE booklet. It's not yet fully known if these albums will be presented as new albums or just rejigged versions of the 70's ones.

Bowie has changed album covers before, like 5 different times.

Yes, you are correct. I corresponded with Tony via email and then met him at a concert at CBGB's for another artist he's currently working with, and he confirmed that the order will be returned to the concert running order. He said, and I'm paraphrasing here, that one reason it was originally released with a chronological tracklisting was that the songs fit better on the LP's that way. With vinyl, there were time constraints to what would physically fit on an album side that are significantly less than those on CD. As far as the "real concert" feel, I don't think that will be restored, as it's not on the original masters. The audio from the "Stage" shows was recorded at studio quality, hence Visconti's love for the album and its sound quality, and this meant that the crowd noise was not so much mixed out, but was never picked up by the microphones in the first place. This is conjecture on my part, but it seems logical based on what I've read of the recording and mixing process of the album.

I like the absence of crowd noise. It makes the live arrangement much clearer. On bootlegs, one is considered better quality if there is no or little crowd noise, so why should the opposite be true of an official live release?

Re: Sound And Order new [re: dukewhite]  

It is the balance, in a bootleg the recorder is usually in the crowd so the crowd is high in the mix, to the expense of the music on times. But hearing the crowd enjoying themselves between songs and singing along to something like All the young dudes on the Dublin "promo" enhances the song. As it is a concert it shouldn't sound like it was made in the studio, or it defeats the object of being live.

Well that's what I think anyway.

One album I can't listen to very often is Santa Monica 72, or in my case Ziggy Stardust And The Spiders From Mars "Live". At the end of each song the crowd noise is booming!! Is this the same for the "proper" Santa Monica 72 CD?

I remember someone pointing out on these boards that the sleeve notes of Aladdin Sane (2003) say "..from the forthcoming album Santa Monica 72", so hopefully we'll see a deluxe repackage of this album too.

And the original release of Space Oddity (or David Bowie, as it was actually called). The vinyl version of Tin Machine also depicted the band in different positions than on the CD but since they were released simultaneously, they could both considered to be originals.

Was it Visconti that once said that he mixed down the audience levels to cut out some booing during the first couple instrumentals of the show?

What's odd, is that fan accounts from 78 talked of potheads(and otherwise) were in stoner bliss during the instrumentals. It's like the chill out rooms that have on the upper floors of some rave clubs.

If I'm not too much mistaking (and I'm not ), David Bowie (1969) was originally released in the UK with the 'bubbles' cover it sports in the most recent reissue. In the US Man Of Words / Man Of Music was released with a somewhat similar cover that has a blue backround without the bubbles. The first issue to be called Space Oddity (RCA 1972) had a different Ziggy-era cover, which was used in all subsequent re-releases until EMI 1999 reissues.

I find it difficult almost to the point of impossibility to believe that this was a factor. While it was often the case that the running order of vinyl albums had to take into account how much you could fit on a side (about 25 minutes if I remember correctly), fact is Stage was a double album, and there was plenty of time to spare no matter how they cut it.

It's difficult to believe they couldn't have run the album in show order, but that somehow magically by putting it in chronological order, it all fitted. And in fact, if we look at how the album ended up chronologically, we can see they had plenty of time to play with, and didn't end up particularly balanced over the four sides.

Side 1: 15 and a half minutes (approx)
Side 2: 17 and a half
Side 3: 19 and a half
Side 4: 19 and a half

Personally, I believe the real reason is that someone (probably RCA, but maybe Bowie too) felt that the more closely it resembled a "Greatest Hits" type compilation, the better it would sell (this would also explain why they took out the crowd sounds). By putting, for example, all the Ziggy era songs on one side, and all the mid 70s soul funk on another, they could make it more attractive to people who preferred one particular version of Bowie.

Slan libh,

I was going to say that... But yeah, putting the tracks on correct order in the first place should have posed no difficulty.

Also, I think it's actually possible to queeze 30 minutes on one side of a vinyl. Mike Oldfield's 60-minute Amarok was released on vinyl, simply cut to half without any editing.

Re: The Signs Are Good new [re: Sysiyo]  

It's hard to know seeing that Amarok was released much later. Technology usually means that things can become more and more condensed (one of the reasons why hard drives keep increasing in size). That said, the 45 minute Sgt. Peppers certainly indicates that 22 or 23 minutes was achievable.

That is true. But to pick a more contamporary example, Oldfield's 1979 live Exposed album includes a version of Tubular Bells (Part 1) that clocks at 28.42 and fills one side of the album.

The problem with vinyl though was if you tried to put more than 15 minutes on each side, the sound quality and volume degraded, that's why only compilations and best of albums generally ran for more than that.

Also I remember listening to an interview with an Australian record producer in the late 70s and he said they always tried to place the best or most popular tracks in position 1 or 2 on each side as the sound quality progressively deteriorated towards the centre of the disc.

the whole final track-order of that album is an anomaly. Ideally, "Fame" would have been released as a stand-alone single with "Across the Universe" as the B-side. It would make more sense than haivng them on what would have been The Gouster since they have more in common with each otehr (Lennon) than with anything else on the album.
