Five-CD boxed set tracking Bowie's early development throughout 1968 and 1969, via his home demos, BBC radio sessions, studio recordings with guitarist John 'Hutch' Hutchinson, and the experimental music and mime group, Feathers. The collection also celebrates the 50th anniversaries of the releases of the "Space Oddity" single and Bowie's second album, David Bowie (aka Space Oddity). The set contains 12 previously unreleased tracks/demos from the period as well as a brand-new mix of the Space Oddity album by long-time Bowie producer/collaborator Tony Visconti. The new mix of the album now features the title track of the boxed set, "Conversation Piece," restored to the track listing in it's initially intended position before it was originally dropped due to time constraints of the vinyl. The 120-page hardback book accompanying the box features exclusive memorabilia from the personal collection of Bowie's former manager, the late Ken Pitt, as well as from the David Bowie Archive and includes photos. The sleeve notes have been written for the release by Bowie experts Mark Adams, Tris Penna, and Kevin Cann along with contributions from Bowie's lifelong friend George Underwood, Vernon Dewhurst, and Dana Gillespie.
