„The Mercury Demos“ е насловот на новата колекција со демо-снимки од британската легенда Дејвид Боуви што ќе биде објавена на 28 јуни. Изданието ќе содржи девет досега необјавени песни, како и демо-снимка од познатата „Space Oddity“, за која во соопштението пишува дека „за првпат ќе биде претставена во вистинскиот контекст“.

MERCURY DEMOS LP BOX DUE IN JUNE “I recall how we lived on the corner of a bed…” As part of the ongoing Space Oddity 50 celebrations and following the recent Spying Through A Keyhole and Clareville Grove Demos collections, Parlophone is releasing a further set of recordings known as The ‘Mercury’ Demos on 28th June 2019. The ‘Mercury’ Demos are 10 early Bowie recordings captured live in one take to a Revox reel to reel tape machine in David’s flat in spring 1969, with Bowie on vocals, guitar and Stylophone and with accompaniment from John ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson on guitar and vocals. The version of ‘Space Oddity’ from the Demos, originally released with edits on the S&V box, is presented here in its true context for the first time. The other recordings on the album are all previously unreleased. In addition to Bowie originals, the session also includes the Roger Bunn’s Life Is A Circus (which features as an earlier demo version on the Clareville Grove Demos set) and the Lesley Duncan composition, Love Song, later recorded by Elton John for his Tumbleweed Connection album. David’s own Conversation Piece is announced as ‘a new song’ and Janine features a short section sung to the melody of The Beatles’ Hey Jude. The session was a document of the ‘Bowie & Hutch’ duo’s set of the time recorded at the request of Mercury Records A&R man Calvin Mark Lee for his boss Bob Reno. Both Calvin and Bob are referenced during the 41-minute recording which was key in securing David his deal with Mercury Records. The ‘Mercury’ Demos comes in a replica of the original tape box and will feature 1 mono 33 1/3 rpm vinyl LP, a print, two photo contact sheets and sleeve notes by Mark Adams. The labels of the LP feature the same EMIDISC acetate styling as Spying Through A Keyhole and Clareville Grove Demos with the song titles in David’s own handwriting.

Материјалот е снимен во живо, во 1969 година во станот на покојниот музичар, а покрај неговото пеење и свирење на гитара, ќе може да се слушне и Џон Хачинсон како вокалист и гитарист. Меѓу снимките се и изведби на „Life Is A Circus“ од Роџер Бан и „Love Song“ од Лесли Данкан, а во темата „Janine“ може да се слушне и кус извадок од мелодијата на „Hey Jude“ од „Битлси“.

Освен „The Mercury Demos“, најавен е и бокс-сетот „Clareville Grove Demos“, во кој исто така ќе биде вклучена везија на „Life Is A Circus“ и кој ќе ја одбележи 50-годишнината од објавувањето на „Space Oddity“.
