Overview

Bowie's exhaustive reworking of his catalog continues with a look back at this often-overlooked, post-Tin Machine foray into acid jazz and ambient dance music. The original edition garnered plenty of interest by pitting the singer's typically arch tones against contributions from collaborators as varied as crooner Al B Sure (who duets with Bowie on the title track) and the late art-jazz trumpeter Lester Bowie. The disc also boasted some of the farthest-reaching covers in the singer's well-stocked catalog -- including takes on Cream's "I Feel Free" and Morrissey's "I Know It's Going to Happen Someday." This reissue adds a second disc packed with offbeat remixes that range from mild tweaks (like Jack Dangers's take on "You've Been Around") to utter reinventions (any of the three versions of the racial-tension paean "Jump They Say," particularly the eerie "Dub Oddity" mix). In addition, the reissue boasts a third disc, a DVD, that joins the Black Tie White Noise home video (here on DVD for the first time) -- including extensive interviews with Bowie interspersed with live performance footage from 1993 -- with the three videos made for the album. It's a strictly black-tie affair, top to bottom.
