Saturday (January 8th) mark what would've been the late, great David Bowie's 75th birthday. Today (January 7th) Bowie's long-unissued 2001 album, Toy is released. The oft-bootlegged album — now renamed Toy:Box — is available in three-CD or six-by-ten-inch vinyl versions.
Included in Toy:Box is a second CD/set of 10-inches of alternative mixes and versions including proposed B-Sides (versions of Bowie’s debut single “Liza Jane” and 1967’s “In The Heat Of The Morning”), later mixes by Tony Visconti and the “Tibet Version” of “Silly Boy Blue” recorded at the Looking Glass Studio time at the of the 2001 Tibet House show in New York featuring Philip Glass on piano and Moby on guitar.
The third CD/set of 10-inches features Unplugged & Somewhat Slightly Electric mixes of thirteen Toy tracks.
