I find myself being drawn towards this particular Demo, more and more.  It is a poignant & befitting reminder of His ability in being leagues ahead as a lyricist, coupled with a complete understanding of his craft as a vocalist. This tune is breathtakingly beautiful.

My favourite Bowie song - the biggest thrill I got was hearing the version of the BOWPROMO1 for the first time in 1985. The start (in stereo) with a much richer mix is sublime and I never understood why this version wasn't used in the official release...

You are right, the demo is a  special template for many reasons and it was great to hear it when it came out for the first time 1990. It also made me appreciate Mick Ronson's contributions and arrangements to HD much more.

...and it's one of the few, truly exclusive, Ryko bonus tracks that hasn't reappeared on a later release

… thanks to Youtube  there's bundles of stuff to be found, though I cannot say that I care too much for 'some' of the so-called remixes or blatantly wrong 'unknown edits' etc. 

This is interesting if you've not seen it. It also somehow confirms why David said to me, and I quote: " I hear you've been speaking with Rono. He's a C*** isn't he"  I know that he was truly peeved-off with everything & anything to do with Mainman/Defries, but?

I cannot help you I'm sorry to say. The video is by Fox News. They have a Facebook page which may be of use to you?
