Just a thought but can you not list all the promo/ltd.ed. singles & albums somewhere/somehow separately ?
As just now this looks a piggin' mess.
Does EVERY single etc with a slightly different edit or that was only released in Ulan Bator HAVE to have it's own separate listing ?

I wonder if somebody can help here . . .

I was on the David Bowie official webiste / store about two days ago. On it I saw Heathen, a double vinyl edition, there was a picture and it showed the two vinyl discs coming out a double gatefold cover of Heathen. The photo made the vinyl look like it was red vinyl, but the verbal description stated "double clear vinyl edition".

I love this album so wanted to order it right away, but then there was a problem with the page, the purchase didn't go through, and then all evidence of this Heathen double album vanished. I tried to find evidence of it on the site (and elsewhere). Nothing. I know I saw it (and can still see it in my head). I must have caught the page just as they were taking it down.

I wonder what potential projects there are with the Heathen album? It's a great album, and would be perfect for a double album as it could have the unreleased 'Toy' tracks and any of the other available remixes (Moby etc) . . . it would then stand srongyly with its monster companion: Outside, double vinyl album.

Do you have a section for Web Only / Streamed Only releases such as the recent 'Something in The Air' from Paris 1999 on the small venue Hours tour?

What about A Reality Tour (2010), appearing live performances from 2003? What's the reason I don't see at the list? I think it's a mistake.

Any news on Earthling or Outside vinyl represses in some not too distant future ? The Discogs Sharks Community's teeth are still too sharp.... My comment is CERTAINLY NOT a fu**ing review btw.

It would be better, and tidier, if all the same singles were merged into one list. ie All the Jean Genie releases in one list instead of 3-4 separate ones, and all the other singles with more than one release.

Really annoyed by all the live albums/interviews shoved into the albums section. I know I'm not alone. I'm going to be looking into how to fix this.

Why does Iggy Pop's The Idiot appear on Bowie's discography list?

This section is a mess, too many vinyl compilations listed. They are not albums! For example 'Rock Concert' from 1979...
this is not a complete album. it is a cheap at the time collection of live tracks from 'Stage'.
Please can we sort this out...

THE BOWIE VINYL FACTORY - or - how Death increases fame - and profit for all except the performer
[specifically vinyl here . . .]

There are so many vinyl Bowie releases after his death. It was totally understandable the year of Bowie's death, though still awesome in its extent. He's obviously one of our greatest artists and performers. And in the capitalist world, the reaction is More Product. Only the well-pocketed with a shed-load of storage can possibly keep up. Of course there was Black Star and its singles. Then presses and continual represses of important and recent albums. Lazarus the stage production and the complete Man Who Fell to Earth. The expensive and quirky 7" picture discs, unplayed by most (?), one of them has a Starman price.

Of course there is the completist's dream the 'five' year box sets. Wonderful items, though perhaps a bit of a tease for those who already have all the albums. Then other items, some of which are great to listen to. Bowie at the Beeb is a quality production and has some truly alternative takes. And other items, some of them 'rare', some simply odd: anthologies, live sets, collaborations, some 'strictly limited' . . . some unsellable before Bowies death. And some not even worth having? I wouldn't know - I don't have that big shed.

Now we have the swirly vinyl ltd edition !!! It's a key edition for the hard-to-find-on-vinyl Outside (complete - not 'excerpts'). For me Outside is a key Bowie album. It is great to have the full version available on vinyl again - I hope the sound production does the music justice. Less key are the other swrirlies - and three swirly options for each album !!! Fine, yes, it's fun, but kind of totally mad since these albums weren't being sold by the pick-up truck before death. It does make you wonder what the message is. (And let's not get all gloomy - it really isn't worth it, far worse things are happening.)

My comment throughout this mania (not aimed at sellers) is think when you collect. In my opinion, real fans should be looking at the older items and perhaps even when Bowie was less popular. It helps when your taste is not populist *. There are some great items out there at cheap prices. Listen to it, choose carefully and enjoy it. Don't buy because it is Bowie. Buy it because you love Bowie.

Sometimes when these current 'ltd editions' are issued they are not that limted at all (a ten thousand press run is not going to be a valuable collector's piece, unless it is Black Star). It is incredible the Bowie mania is still continuing (and being harvested). It won't continue. Those who bought because of the mania not the sound will eventually turn away and then prices will stabilise. Another Star will die and Bowie will be only appreciated by his fans (perhaps a growing number?). Some items will remain precious because of their genuine relevance and rarity, many others will drop in price.

. . . and another black star . . .

* Let's face it: Bowie might have had fame firmly clutched in his grasp, but I think he looked at fame ironically and preferred individualism. I wonder how well fans take in that message. The album Outside is a good lesson.
