The Legendary Unreleased Album Boxset
3-CD Holland
Box Set

‘Toy’ was recorded following David's triumphant Glastonbury 2000 performance. Bowie entered the studio with his band, Mark Plati, Sterling Campbell, Gail Ann Dorsey, Earl Slick, Mike Garson, Holly Palmer and Emm Gryner, to record new interpretations of songs he’d first recorded from 1964-1971. David planned to record the album ‘old school’ with the band playing live, choose the best takes and then release it as soon as humanly possible in a remarkably prescient manner. Unfortunately, in 2001 the concept of the ‘surprise drop’ album release and the technology to support it were still quite a few years off, making it impossible to release ‘Toy’, as the album was now named, out to fans as instantly as David wanted. In the interim, David did what he did best; he moved on to something new, which began with a handful of new songs from the same sessions and ultimately became the album ‘Heathen’, released in 2002 and now acknowledged as one of his finest moments.

Available in 3CD or 6x10” vinyl formats, ‘Toy (Toy:Box)’ is a special edition of the ‘Toy’ album. The ‘capture the moment’ approach of the recording sessions are extended to the sleeve artwork designed by Bowie featuring a photo of him as a baby with a contemporary face. The package also contains a 16-page full-colour book featuring previously unseen photographs by Frank Ockenfels 3. Included in ‘Toy (Toy:Box)’ is a second CD/set of 10”s of alternative mixes and versions including proposed B-Sides plus a third CD/set of 10”s featuring 'Unplugged & Somewhat Slightly Electric’ mixes of thirteen ‘Toy’ tracks.
