Bowie fans raging over new edition of The Next Day presents a 3-disc version of David Bowie’s The Next Day album, called The Next Day Extra.
The Next Day album was first released in March 2013.
The Next Day Extra includes the original 14-track CD, a 10-track CD of bonus tracks and a DVD of the four promotional films made for the album: Where Are We Now?, The Stars (Are Out Tonight), The Next Day and Valentine’s Day.

The 10-track bonus CD includes four previously unreleased tracks, two new mixes and God Bless The Girl, the track that was only released on the Japanese issue of The Next Day. The remaining three tracks gather up the bonus tracks from the deluxe version of the album.

Tracklist for The Next Day Extra:
01 Atomica
02 Love Is Lost (Hello Steve Reich Mix by James Murphy for The DFA)
03 Plan
04 The Informer
05 Like A Rocket Man
06 Born In A UFO
07 I’d Rather Be High (Venetian Mix)
08 I’ll Take You There
09 God Bless The Girl
10 So She 

In addition to the physical release of The Next Day Extra, there will be a 7-track digital EP bundle featuring these tracks.

The news have raised several critical comments from fans on Facebook, of which we have chosen to citate a few: "Milking the customer cow", "Jeez, he sure does know how to make the most of his 'bonus material'." "I ordered The Next Day from Japan especially for exclusive bonus tracks, and now they are released in this expensive 3 disc box?" A few positive comments too: "If you don't want it you simply don't buy it and stick to your existing copy of a great album - or just buy the EP with the new tracks on it."

King Crimson 2013

From the diary of Robert Fripp the entry dated September 6:

So, King Crimson is in motion. This is a very different reformation to what has gone before: seven players, four English and three American, with three drummers.
The Seven-Headed Beast of Crim is in Go! mode.
And those seven are apparently Robert Fripp, John Wetton, Mel Collins, Gavin Harrison, Pat Mastelotto, Tony Levin and Bill Rieflin.


The actual line-up is Fripp, Gavin Harrison, Bill Rieflin, Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto, Mel Collins and Jakko Jakszyk.
And Robert writes that due to each individuals previous engagements it will be a year before this version of King Crimson is able to perform.

David Bowie Pin Ups radio show revealed

To mark the 40th anniversary of David Bowie's album Pin Ups, Spotify will stream a special promo program originally recorded in 1973 but never used. 
The David Bowie Pin Ups Radio Show will be streamed on Spotify on October 28th. I was originally produced as a promotional tool for the release of the record in 1973, but was by some reason never used. 

David Bowie (official) announces the event like this on Facebook:
"The radio show features snippets from Pin Ups interspersed with brief but nevertheless wonderful observations from Bowie regarding the bands he covers on the album, wherein he adopts his very best mockney to recall his days as a mod during the period. It's great fun and you’re going to love it."

Radio Dupree Top 3 - September 2013

1. Mark Masters Ensemble - Show Biz Kids
Everything You Did

2. State Cows - This Time
The Second One

3. Steely Dan - Your Gold Teeth II
Katy Lied

Chart compiled by listeners voting
on the songs they hear on Radio Dupree

Another month has passed and we bring you the-shortest-Radio-Dupree-chart-ever. Yep, it's just three places long. Not 20 as we usually present it.
But this tijme around these were the only songs that got any reaction from our listeners, so...

It is a Steely Dannish top 3 at that. The number one tune is from a brand new CD with jazzy covers of SD tracks. We wrote about it here. Number two is Swedish band State Cows that started out playing SD covers. These days they have two albums of original material.
And at number three we find Steely Dan itself with one of our favourite tracks.

Keep on listening and if you hear something you like give it a thumbs up. If it's something you don't like a thumbs down. That way we know what to remove and add to the ever-changing playlist and also get a chart of listeners favourites once a month.
