Prepare ye to be underwhelmed with this year's offering:

https://townsendmusic.store/product/113357

Laughing With Liza - The Vocalion And Deram Singles 1964 - 1967 RSD 2023 5x7"
Boxset £75.00
Release Date: 22/04/2023

Discs: 5

An artist on the cusp of genius, in the height of Swinging London. Bowie's early Deram singles collected in a 7" box for the very first time, including a never before released version of Space Oddity, his breakthrough hit.

Please allow 5-7 business days for dispatch.

DISC ONE
A Side - Liza Jane
B Side - Louie, Louie Go Home (Vocalion Pop – V.9221)

DISC TWO
A-Side Rubber Band
B-Side The London Boys (Deram DM 107)

DISC THREE
A-Side - The Laughing Gnome
B-Side - The Gospel According To Tony Day (Deram DM 123)

DISC FOUR
A-Side - Love You Til Tuesday
B-Side - Did You Ever Have A Dream (Deram DM 135)

DISC FIVE
A-Side Space Oddity (Love You Til Tuesday version)
B-Side The Laughing Gnome (Vocal Take 1, Mix 1) (Unreleased)

So the 'highlight' is a 'previously unreleased version of Space Oddity lifted from the 'Love You Till Tuesday' film. Whoop de fuckin' doo. Seriously, Parlophone - how many versions of 'Space Oddity' do you think we really need? There are 8 versions on the 'Conversation Piece' set, and so many other demos in mono, stereo, alternate mixes in mono/stereo, alternate takes etc etc etc.
You would think that they could do a lot better than this rather pathetic effort but apparently not.

I'll not be buying this garbage myself.

Interesting point, but the same comment really does still very much apply and with hindsight it's easy to understand why mention was not specified - after all, who would really care?
