Comments taken from bassman's site: "A very nice compilation disc. The majority of the songs are from the Marquee Club, in excellent stereo sound quality! All of the other songs are studio versions, except for MY DEATH. REBEL REBEL and GOLDEN YEARS are so called "dry mixes" made for Top Of The Pops. DODO is a recording with Bowie and Lulu on vocals. The three YOUNG AMERICANS songs are alternative studio takes. As you can see above, lots of different colour variations were released. A nice and interesting disc!"
This was my very first silver BowieBoot I bought. (and I bought only a few afterwards, but not because I did not like this one a lot Wink ) For your enjoyment served as an "xAct cd-paranoid"-rip.
Info: Comments taken from bassman's site: Bonus: colour picture discs, 100 in green, 450 in red, 200 in gold and 100 in green and orange - (this rip was from a golden edition)
