I remember reading in Record Collector, in the early 90's, I think, that a different version of Life On Mars - on tape - was sold in Sotheby's.

------------------
The next EMI Expanded Editions:
* What are your hopes for these releases?
* Let's have The Man Who Sold The World with the complete Paris Cinema Studios, Feb 5, 1970 radio concert, and the complete April 1970 radio session. Hunky Dory - add the complete Paris Cinema Studios concert, June 1971 in stereo, from the BBC Stereo Transcription LP if the master is lost!
* Any future live 1974 release MUST include a recording of Drive In Saturday from the early part of the tour, it's classic!
The next DVD release?
* Cracked Actor / Omnibus documentary must be released on DVD!

Toy took years to surface. I doubt we'll hear this anytime soon.

I've got the instrumental version which ends with the phone ringing and Bowie (?) saying 'OK.', but I don't have any longer version. People can have this if they want.

I didn't hang onto it purposely, just I never thought mine was that rare, so I never mentioned it before. It's from a Scandanavian TV programme about the making of the song, Life On Mars. Drop me an email and I'll send it.

LOL!! No, YOU'VE got to send me an email, because I'm going to send you a link. I don't want it to get overloaded with traffic, otherwise it'll get shut down. That's why I don't post the link here, not that I don't want anyone else to have it.

To be honest - I should imagine there are demos of most songs and I'd like to hear them.

Hopefully the Life Of Mars demo will be like the Changes demo and started life as an oompa song.
