Putting on the black tie, cranking out the white noise...
I think most of you noticed the
There is one change to the original schedule though. The US release of the album has been pushed back to January/February 2004, although it should still be available elsewhere on the original August 4th release date. This move, along with the Aladdin Sane 30th anniversary delayed US release, is generally seen as revenge for the American market getting all those films before us Europeans over the years! };-)
For those of you that don't have the energy to move their mouse all the way up to the image above, I should remind you that, not only does the new package include the brilliant original album, and a sparkling new remastered DVD of the original Black Tie White Noise video compilation/interview/documentary thing, but it also contains a CD of rare and hard-to-find tracks that includes the following:

That's a pretty impressive listing I think you'll agree, and an essential purchase for the casual fan and hardened collector alike... Sorry I slipped in to sales rep speak there, but you get what I mean... It's a bloody good package.
Needless to say, the ever-generous Nigel Reeve over at EMI, will furnish BowieNet with competition copies ahead of the release date... The August 4th date that is!
