More catnip for Bowie completists as 1973 hit “Sorrow” becomes latest in extensive reissue campaign.
It’s been a busy year for Bowie collectors. While new album The Next Day stole the headliners with singles like “Valentine’s Day” pressed on picture-disc 7″, there’s also been a steady flow of 40th anniversary reissues, with “Sorrow” set to follow “Life On Mars” and the V&A’s coloured-mixed “Excerpts from the Outside”.
A cover of The McCoy’s 1965 hit, “Sorrow” was the only single to be released from Bowie’s Pin Ups project – the last to feature the bulk of Ziggy Stardust’s house band The Spiders From Mars. Originally backed by “Amsterdam”, a cover of Jacques Brel’s “Port Of Amsterdam”, the 40th anniversary edition will instead include a live version of the track recorded in Vancouver in 1983.
Remastered for Vinyl the 40th anniversary “Sorrow” 7″ picture disc will be released on 22nd OCtober. Click here for more info. Check out the striking artwork and listen to the track below:
