Sound + Vision

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Sound + Vision is a triple-disc box set designed to introduce Rykodisc's extensive reissue program of David Bowie's RCA albums. As a result, it has a number of idiosyncrasies that prevent it from becoming a definitive box set. Conceptually, the set was intended to showcase Rykodisc's remastering expertise, as well as the rarities lying in the vaults. Consequently, the song selection is targeted toward hardcore Bowie fans, ignoring such hits as "Jean Genie," "Starman," "Golden Years," and "Fame," among many others. However, there is an abundance of terrific rare material, including the demo for "Space Oddity," the Man Who Sold the World outtake "London Bye Ta ...

Sound + Vision is a triple-disc box set designed to introduce Rykodisc's extensive reissue program of David Bowie's RCA albums. As a result, it has a number of idiosyncrasies that prevent it from becoming a definitive box set. Conceptually, the set was intended to showcase Rykodisc's remastering expertise, as well as the rarities lying in the vaults. Consequently, the song selection is targeted toward hardcore Bowie fans, ignoring such hits as "Jean Genie," "Starman," "Golden Years," and "Fame," among many others. However, there is an abundance of terrific rare material, including the demo for "Space Oddity," the Man Who Sold the World outtake "London Bye Ta Ta," an alternate "John, I'm Only Dancing," the soulful Young Americans outtake "After Today," and a single version of "Rebel Rebel," which arguably is better than the more familiar version. However, such rarities and unpredictable selections "Red Sails" but not "D.J." from Lodger, live versions of "Sufragette City," "Station to Station," and "Breaking Glass" mean that the set is neither a good introduction nor a compliment to Changesbowie. Instead, it's a good, if frustrating, curio piece for collectors. [The initial pressings of Sound + Vision included a bonus disc that contained a CD-video of "Ashes to Ashes," as well as three live tracks. It was replaced in 1995 with a CD-ROM of the same material.]
