Dear David Bowie and iTunes, Please release "Toy," the album from which this fine song is taken. A little History for those not in the know. "Toy" is an unreleased album by David Bowie, that was intended to be released after "...hours." On this album Bowie had recorded new takes on some of his late 60's material: "Baby Loves That Way," "I Dig Everything," "Conversation Piece," "Let Me Sleep Beside You," "In The Heat Of The Morning," "You've Got a Habit Of Leaving," "Silly Boy Blue," "Liza Jane," and "London Boys." He also recorded songs that had up until that point existed only as rare Ziggy Stardust era demos: "Hole in the Ground," and "Shadow Man." To complete an already fantastic album, Bowie composed three new songs: "Uncle Floyd," "Afraid," and the title track "Toy." If those first two tracks sound familiar, they should. "Uncle Floyd" and "Afraid" were remade as "Slip Away" and "Afraid" on Bowie's next album, "Heathen." On many of the "Heathen" CD singles, cuts from "Toy" were made available: "Baby Loves That Way," "Conversation Piece," "You've Got a Habit Of Leaving," and "Shadow Man." "Toy" was renamed "Your Turn to Drive" and was made available in tandem with the release of Bowie's latest album, "Reality." So, what of the remaining tracks, "I Dig Everything," "Let Me Sleep Beside You," "In The Heat Of The Morning," "Silly Boy Blue," "Liza Jane," "London Boys." "Hole in the Ground," "Uncle Floyd," and "Afraid?" It would be wonderful if Bowie saw it fit to release "Toy" the album in its entirety. From what songs are available- his voice sounds wonderful, and the production, lush. Download this song for a peek into what remains an elusive gem.
Words cannot describe how awesome this song is...It's such a perfect harmony of so many instruments, and I've been hooked on it for the past week. A MUST BUY for ANY Bowie fan for sure.
Great track - weaving texture, dream-like, nice vocals, great for headphones/earbuds. Leaves you wanting more.
