David Bowie’s ‘Brilliant Adventure (1992 – 2001)’ is an 11CD box and 18-piece vinyl, the latest in an award-winning and critically acclaimed series of box sets. The box sets include newly remastered versions, with input from the original producers and collaborators, of some of Bowie’s most underrated and experimental material: ‘Black Tie White Noise’, ‘The Buddha Of Suburbia’ (available on vinyl for the first time in nearly 30 years), ‘1.Outside’, ‘Earthling’ and ‘hours…’ along with the expanded live album “BBC Radio Theatre, London, June 27, 2000”, the non-album/alternative version/B-sides and soundtrack music compilation ‘Re:Call 5’ and the legendary previously unreleased ‘Toy’.
‘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.
